Individual Camp Philosophy
Our coaching staff has been successful at the high school, junior college and NCAA I, II, III levels because we stress the basics of basketball and how to get the most out of a team experience. Basketball is meant to be a fun game because it involves a group working together. It is our goal to help every camper improve their individual skills and their ability to work well with their teammates.
We believe that it is important to help improve the quality of basketball played throughout the state of Nebraska. We enjoy developing relationships with players and coaches who attend our camps. It is our goal that each athlete is given the tools to improve in their overall game. In addition, we hope to instill our desire and love of basketball to everyone we work with. Our coach-to-camper ratio will be one for every six to eight campers. Be ready to work and have fun!!
Each camper will receive an adidas Husker T-shirt and Gatorade products.
Camps will utilize the courts at Nebraska's new Hendricks Training Complex. The Huskers' new state-of-the-art practice facility was completed in October of 2011 and provides Nebraska with some of the finest all-around facilities in the nation for basketball training. Nebraska's 2014 camps will also utilize the renovated courts in the main arena at the Bob Devaney Sports Center, along with courts at the Devaney Center Indoor Track.
Campers are housed two to a room in the air conditioned residence halls. Any roommate preference should be mailed with your application (Two campers per room).
Airport transfers are available upon request.
All meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) are provided for all Overnight Campers at Elite Camp. Lunch and dinner is provided for Commuter Campers at Elite Camp. Lunch is provided each day of Day Camp.
All campers must carry their own medical insurance. Nebraska Women's Basketball Camp and the University of Nebraska cannot be responsible for injuries sustained at camp. An athletic trainer will be on hand for all sessions, and a doctor is on call. We recommend that each camper be in excellent physical condition. This not only prevents injuries, but also makes the learning process much easier. Please notify camp staff in advance of any special health conditions or health care needs.
Before being admitted into camp, all campers must present a medical release form with a parent's and doctor's signature, along with a 2013-14 school physical.
All campers should wear or bring appropriate training gear. Overnight campers are expected to bring their own towels, blankets or sleeping bag, as well as toilet articles, swim suit and other articles of clothing as desired. Extra spending money for snacks, ets., may be helpful.

Head Coach Connie Yori
The 2014 camps will be directed by Coach Connie Yori and her staff. Yori is in her 12th year at Nebraska in 2013-14. She guided the Huskers to their second NCAA Sweet 16 appearance in the past four years in 2013. She was also named the 2013 Big Ten Coach of the Year, while leading NU to 25 victories - the second-most wins in school history. The Huskers, who finished as the regular-season runner-up in the Big Ten, earned their fifth NCAA Tournament berth in the past seven years. In 2011-12, Yori led Nebraska to a successful first season in the Big Ten, culminating with 24 wins and an appearance in the Big Ten title game before advancing to the 2012 NCAA Tournament. Yori led NU to the best season in school history in 2009-10, when the Huskers finished with a 32-2 overall record that included the program's first Big 12 Conference regular-season title with a 16-0 record. Yori's Huskers advanced to the school's first NCAA Sweet 16 appearance after claiming the program's first NCAA Tournament No. 1 seed. Nebraska tied the Big 12 record with a 30-game winning streak to open the season, while becoming the first Big 12 men's or women's basketball team to close the regular season undefeated (29-0).
The 2010 National Coach of the Year (WBCA, AP, USBWA, Naismith, Kay Yow) Yori has led the Huskers to the most successful stretch in school history with nine postseason tournament appearances, including five NCAA Tournament trips (2007, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013). Yori focuses her coaching philosophy on character, discipline, fundamentals, intelligent play, and mental and physical toughness.
Yori came to Nebraska after spending 10 successful seasons at Creighton. Yori still owns the Creighton record for career scoring average per game at 20.3 points per game, while ranking as the No. 3 all-time leading scorer at the school with 2,010 career points.
