Description

 

The idea came from Charlie’s involvement with tennis legend Billie Jean King and her associates who had created Tennis America (TA), a multi-site network of camps featuring well known “celebrity” coaches.

Although the TA camps were considered among the best, most prestigious destination tennis programs in the country, the company just wasn’t profitable. When TA folded in 1975, Billie Jean and her associates hired Charlie to correct the flaws and reinvent the youth camp experience on a whole new level in ways that would also be economically sustainable.

That first year Charlie and the fledgling US Sports Camps served a total of 150 “campers” … by 1986 Charlie had worked his way into an ownership position and that year USSC served 2,000 campers. That’s when Charlie knew his idea was a winner. He left his full time job and took over operations of USSC. In 1990 USSC hosted 5,000 young athletes. In 1995, 12,000. And the rest, as they say, is history…
