Coach Greg Herenda of FDU to Offer Basketball Camp

FDU Division 1 basketball coach Greg Herenda, will again be offering his highly successful Basketball Camp and Hoop School June 25-28, on the campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University in the Rothman Center in Teaneck/Hackensack campus for boys and girls, ages 8-16. The FDU men’s team missed making the NCAA tournament this year, by one point, but did defeat the number one team in the NEC Conference Wagner College. They also had the number one foul shooter in the country for Division 1: Darnell Edge. Yeshiva students who wish to improve their game and develop their basketball skills should plan to attend. Guest coaches will be coming from other Division 1 programs and FDU players will serve as counselors. Professor Ira Jaskoll, FDU Hillel faculty advisor and former JV basketball coach at Heichal Hatorah, will be at the camp to insure that all Orthodox students feel comfortable and well taken care of. In addition, strictly kosher pizza and snacks will be provided for campers to buy.

“Coach Herenda is an excellent coach, having taken the FDU team to the NCAA tournament in 2016,” said Jaskoll. “I also had him speak in my MBA sports marketing class and he was inspirational. He is an outstanding speaker as well.”

“I attended the Hoop School the last two years and found it to be well run, lot of fun with the ‘frum’ campers fitting in well. The superior level of coaching and players allows for greater player development.” As a special bonus, all Coach Herenda’s Hoop School campers are invited free of charge to the Sunday June 24, Jewish Heritage Day at the Rockland Boulder baseball game at 1:35 p.m. courtesy of Glatt Express.
