Nike Basketball Camps Releases University of Maryland Eastern Shore 2020 Camp Schedule
Nike Basketball Camps, a division of US Sports Camps, the largest provider of sports camps in the world, has announced its summer dates for the 2020 Nike Basketball Camps at University of Maryland Eastern Shore. Located in Princess Anne, MD, these girls and boys overnight camps are the perfect fit for young athletes looking to have fun and work with Division 1 Eastern Shore Head Coaches, staff and players.
Directing the Nike Boys Basketball Camp at University of Maryland Eastern Shore will be Head Men’s Basketball Coach Jason Crafton. The 2019-20 season will mark Coach Crafton’s first season at the helm with the Hawks. Before coming to The Shore, he coached for over 16 years, being part of many teams ranging from NCAA Division II to the NBA G-League. His focus has always been on player development both on and off the court.
Fred Batchelor, Head Women’s Basketball Coach, will be directing the Nike Girls Basketball Camp at University of Maryland Eastern Shore this summer. Coach Batchelor is a veteran on the Princess Anne campus having spent the last 16 years with the Hawks. Over the course of his tenure, he has become the most winning coach in school history. His teams are built around high character, exceptional talent, and diligent work ethic.
“We are looking forward to returning to The Shore for summer two,” Says Brent Koonce, VP of Nike Basketball Camps. “Our goal is to connect youth to the best coaches and facilities in the area and this camp exceeds that goal. Being able to work with Division 1 coaches like Coach Crafton and Coach Batchelor are invaluable experiences and we are fortunate to be part of it.”
Camp will be held at the newly renovated William P. Hytche Athletic Center and overnight campers will reside in the dorms on the Eastern Shore campus. Camp is geared towards all ability levels, from beginner to advance for ages 10-18.
