Girls' Varsity Head Coach
Mercersburg Academy 
Mercersburg Girls’ Basketball Skills Camp is for the aspiring player who wants to make the varsity or JV team in the future as well as the ones who have dreams of playing at the next level. Over the course of five days, players will build habits that will lead to success on the court. They will work to improve ball handling, shooting and body control. The camp will focus on skills that help players become a leader within their program and a stand out on and off the court. Players will learn on the court, in the classroom, and through video analysis. They will also play competitive skills games, 5 v 5 games, and test their skills in shooting and ball handling skills challenges. 

Mercersburg Girls Basketball Program Overview:
  • Our mission is to challenge players of all levels, from beginner to the skilled athlete. We want to teach players to think the game, learn to lead more effectively and to practice with purpose. Our goal is to promote individual skill development and help players gain self-confidence through basketball success. The Mercersburg Girls Basketball program aims to instill a commitment to disciple, determination, and, most importantly, respect in all players.
  • The girls’ basketball program trains and competes on the Plantz Basketball Courts, a 10,000 square foot facility that houses three full-sized courts. Off-court training takes place in the McDowell Fitness Center, which features contemporary equipment and programming geared for athletic development.
  • Alumni of the program are currently competing at six different NCAA universities, including Loyola University Maryland, Coastal Carolina University, Gettysburg College, Frostburg State University, Union College (N.Y.), and Stevenson University (Md.).
