Training to Be Their Best
The University of Northwestern basketball camps for boys entering grades 4–12 will help each camper to grow athletically and spiritually. Our coaching staff believes God wants us do our very best at whatever we attempt (Colossians 3:23), and we are committed to providing quality instruction on and off the court. Coaches work with campers to focus on individual and team fundamentals and incorporate spiritual principles and films to provide a fun and challenging environment. Campers will be grouped to create fair competition as they work on skill development throughout the week.
Camp Director – Tim Grosz
Camp director Tim Grosz leads the University of Northwestern men's basketball program as head coach for the 20th season in 2019-2020. Coach Grosz's background as a player and coach allows him to effectively lead this unique camp experience for kids.
As the University's associate director of athletics and head men's basketball coach, Coach Grosz has led the Eagles to 14 Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) championships. Grosz led the Eagles to eight trips to the NCAA Division III national tournament. Last year the Eagles defeated St. John's in the first round before losing to the national champion UW-Oshkosh in the second round. In 2015, UNW defeated the University of St. Thomas and Elmhurst College, advancing Northwestern to the Sweet Sixteen. Grosz also guided UNW to a National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) Division I National Championship in 2010. Coach Grosz has been the UMAC Coach of the Year nine times in his 19-year tenure.
Coach Grosz's 366 career victories are first all-time in the program's history, and he currently stands first for career winning percentage (66%). His approach to winning games is equaled by his passion for helping campers grow strong in their faith through the lessons that are learned on the court.
The Northwestern camp staff features current and past players and coaches from the university as well as high school coaches from the Twin Cities area. All staff members profess their faith in Jesus and are committed to giving each camper individual attention, focusing on the fundamentals of basketball and the Christian athlete. Each staff member brings a key area of expertise of the game to share with the campers.
