NYSGA Announces New Junior Partnership with US Sports Camps

February 16, 2018

JAMESVILLE, N.Y. – The New York State Golf Association announced a new relationship with US Sports Camps, the largest operator of sports camps in the world, as an official junior golf partner of the NYSGA.

The NYSGA has worked closely with US Sport Camps over the past couple of years, promoting their popular Nike Junior Golf Camps and the newer Golf Channel Academy Junior Camps, which are held each summer at various accessible venues around the Northeast. In 2018, the relationship will continue to grow and USSC will have a larger marketing presence and stronger connection with the NYSGA moving forward. 

“US Sports Camps has been an industry leader for as long as I can remember. Shortly after graduating from Notre Dame in 1996, I coached at the Nike camp held on campus and was very impressed with the overall experience and opportunity for campers,” said Bill Moore, NYSGA Executive Director. “We are looking forward to our continued relationship to further promote the development of junior golf.”

Last year, the organization operated over 600 camps in 20 different sports attended by approximately 90,000 campers. The company’s mission is simple, but effective:

To connect passionate coaches with young athletes to facilitate athletic and personal development in a positive and safe environment while consistently exceeding the expectations of our customers.

Their golf camps offer a variety of programs designed for the needs of each camper. Juniors have the option to select beginner or advance, as well as day or overnight camps. Every facet of the game of golf is covered during camps and players can immerse themselves in the sport for an entire week among peers, friends, and a team of expert coaches. 

“NYSGA has been a true supporter of our junior golf camps and we look forward to enhancing our relationship in 2018," said Nick Brunner, VP of Golf & Rugby. Our programs are dedicated to providing the perfect balance of golf instruction and fun, utilizing some of the game’s best teaching professionals. Several of our most popular junior camps are located in the Northeast which are ready to serve golfing families across New York.”

This upcoming summer, three camps will be held in the metro-New York/Long Island area including:

Bethpage State Park, Golf Channel Academy Junior Camps

Staten Island, Golf Channel Academy Junior Camps

Baiting Hollow Golf Club, Nike Junior Golf Camps


Additional camps will be held around the northeast including:
