What you'll accomplish: Our camp provides the foundation for young players to develop and improve their basketball skills. We welcome all ability levels, and we provide a positive, encouraging teaching environment to learn and have fun. We will provide the tools to become a better player and help stimulate enthusiasm for the game. We look forward to seeing you this summer.

Xavier men's coaching staff: Xavier graduate and former player Dannton Jackson is 202-90 in nine seasons as the head coach of the Gold Rush menís basketball team. Seven of his teams won 20 or more games, and six of the last eight qualified for the Buffalo Funds- NAIA Division I National Championship. His Xavier teams in 2003-04, 2006-07 and 2011-12 won GCAC regular-season championships. Jackson was voted GCAC Coach of the Year this past season. Jackson is assisted by Alfred Williams, a Xavier graduate and former player. Williams joined the men's basketball staff in August 2009 and helped the Gold Rush win 68 games in his first three seasons as assistant coach. Williams averaged 8.4 points and 5.8 rebounds in 97 career games and was all-conference his senior year when he averaged 11.4 points and a team-leading seven rebounds per game.
