Camp Director Kyle Frakes
A staple in the Rollins Athletic Department for more than two decades, Kyle Frakes enters his 31st season leading the men's golf team and 34th assisting the men's basketball team during the 2023-2024 season. Frakes has led the Tars to 15 NCAA Tournament appearances, including the 2002 NCAA Championship and a national runner-up finish in 2003.View Kyle's Bio ⟩
The Tars finished third in 1997 and fourth in 1995 and 2001. He has been named the Sunshine State Conference Coach of the Year four times and the NCAA Division II Coach of the Year twice. Since 2000, 14 of Frakes' golfers have been nominated to the various All-American teams. He has coached seven first team All-Americans, including multiple winners Rob Oppenheim, a 2016 Rollins Hall of Fame Inductee (2000, 2001, 2002), Alex Smith (2002, 2003), Lee Stroever (2001, 2003) and Dan Walters (2005, 2006).
As the assistant men's basketball coach and a mainstay next to head coach Tom Klusman, Frakes has been part of the program for its most successful seasons. He has helped the Tars win eight Sunshine State Conference regular season championships and make ten trips to the NCAA Tournament. In 2004, under the guidance of Klusman and Frakes, the Tars reached the NCAA Division II Elite Eight for the first time. The Tars again reached the Elite Eight in 2017. Frakes oversees practice plans and player instruction while also assisting with recruiting efforts for the Tars hoops program.
Nike Junior Golf Camps provide young golfers with the tools to enjoy this great game for a lifetime. Our curriculum is the perfect blend of expert instruction, course play and fun off-course activities. With Coach Frakes and his committed and experienced staff, each Nike camper can leave at the end of the week feeling more confident about their game.
