UNC Tar Heels Set to Host Nike Junior Golf Camps in North Carolina
The UNC Tar Heels men’s coaching staff aligns with Nike Junior Golf Camps to offer boys overnight camp and father-son day programs.
January 22, 2018 – University of North Carolina Men’s Golf, led by Head Coach Andrew DiBitetto and Assistant Coach Matthew Clark, have agreed to run summer golf camps under the Nike Junior Golf Camp banner beginning in 2018. The alliance brings together one of the most popular college golf camps in America with the largest youth camp operator in the world.
“Working in conjunction with the North Carolina brand and coaching staff is very exciting,” states Nicholas Brunner, vice president of US Sports Camps. “We strive to provide the best instruction available and Coach DiBitetto and his staff have created one of the finest golf camp experiences based on camper/parent feedback. Our aim is to expose more players to these amazing UNC camps.”
Andrew DiBitetto is in his first year as head coach for the UNC Tar Heels men’s program. He spent the last six seasons as the Tar Heels’ assistant coach, including the past three years when he was the associate head coach, earning the Jan Strickland Award in 2016, which is presented to the assistant coach who has excelled in working with their student-athletes both on the course and in the classroom. DiBitetto has been an integral part of the camps in recent years and will take over as camp director in 2018.
“Coach Clark and I are thrilled to partner with Nike Junior Golf Camps,” says UNC Men’s Golf Head Coach, Andrew DiBitetto. “Bringing these two brands together is something that all of us are very excited about. We are always looking at ways to improve and the relationship with US Sports Camps will definitely enhance the camp experience for everyone involved.”
Tar Heels Nike Junior Golf Camps offer a weeklong overnight camp for boys, ages 11 – 18. The junior program runs June 17th – 21st, 2018.
