And while all proper safety protocols will be maintained, there's little doubt your camper will be thrilled with being active and learning alongside their peers once again!

Camp Summary:
This camp is held on the Alfred University campus in our recently remodeled Galanis Family Arena in the McLane Center and is for boys and girls entering grades 3-12. Campers will be instructed on every aspect in the game of basketball. Individualized instruction will be provided in a fun-filled environment! Each day will consist of stations, team and individual contests and games. Each camper in attendance will receive a T-shirt.

The gym will open at 8:30 AM each day (do not drop your camper off prior to 8:30 AM as there will not be any supervision until that time) and will remain open for "open shooting" until 3:30 PM. Campers may be picked up between 3-3:30 PM daily but must be picked up no later than 3:30 as there will be no supervision after that time.

Directors:
Russ PhillipsThe camp will be co-directed by Alfred University's Men's Basketball Coaches Russ Phillips and Michael Moskowitz.

Coach Phillips took over as head coach starting the 2014 season. He came to AU after five seasons at Hobart College where he was the top assistant coach from 2009-2014. While at Hobart Phillips helped coach a Statesmen team that has been one of the most successful in all of Division III. Phillips has extensive experience coaching outside the collegiate arena. Since 2007 he has worked several basketball camps; was assistant coach at the Western Scholastic Boys Basketball Empire State Games in 2007-08, and from 2005-08 served as head coach for U15, U16 and U17 Rochester-area AAU teams.

Mike MoskowitzCoach Moskowitz was named the ninth Head Coach of the Alfred University women's basketball program in April of 2018. He comes to Alfred University from SUNY New Paltz where he served as an assistant coach for three years. In that position he aided in recruiting, practice planning, scouting, skill workouts, and film study coordination among other responsibilities. During his tenure, the Hawks went 58-26 (.667), making the SUNYAC Tournament three times and winning it twice. They advanced to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 in 2017 prior to bowing out to UMass-Dartmouth, 83-80.

Over the three years, Moskowitz helped New Paltz improve its averages in points scored, points allowed, field goal percentage, 3-point field goal percentage, free throw percentage, assists and turnovers committed.

Prior to New Paltz, he spent one season as the student assistant for the Oneonta State Men’s Basketball team where he helped with coordinating game film, individual workouts and practice planning. During that season, the Dragons went 13-13 while defeating #5 Williams College in their season opener. They continued to the 2014-15 SUNYAC Tournament where they fell in the quarterfinals.

Before moving up to the collegiate ranks, Moskowitz was the JV Girls Basketball Head Coach and Varsity Assistant Coach at Unadilla Valley Central School where he coached former Alfred University basketball player, Amanda Off ’17. While at AU, Off scored 1,350 points, which ranks second all-time in program history.

Since 2013, Moskowitz has served in various roles at a variety of basketball camps including the SUNY New Paltz Basketball Camp, New York Knicks Basketball Camp and Greg Koubek Overnight Basketball Camp. He has also served as the Head Coach of the Triple Threat, an AAU basketball team, from 2016-2018.
