Nike Sports Camps recently reached an agreement to operate golf, tennis, soccer and basketball camps with the Julian Krinsky Camps & Programs (JKCP) staff at two prestigious home universities, Villanova University and Haverford College. JKCP has been in business in the Philadelphia area for over 40 years, providing intensive instruction in academics and sports programs. Under this agreement, Julian Krinsky Camps will now run Nike Junior Golf Camps at their facilities for day and overnight participants.
Over the last 40 years, Julian has turned his passion of playing tennis into a successful business with a mission of helping kids learn, grow and succeed. The ability to create life-changing experiences and inspire the leaders of tomorrow is what has driven Julian from the very beginning, and continues to motivate JKCP today. On October 19, Julian was inducted into the USTA Middle States Hall of Fame, an event that takes place every two years. The USTA Middle States Hall of Fame supports junior tennis programs and activities as well as furthering tennis education objectives in the Middle States. The purpose is to recognize individuals who have made significant achievements and contributions to the sport of tennis. Huffington Post wrote a great article acknowledging this years inductee's, which quoted Hall of Fame Chair Lance Lee saying, "This class has accomplished some truly amazing feats in our tennis community. All four of these individuals have made a substantial impact on our sport and on the USTA community as a whole. They're a truly deserving group."

However, in the 1980’s I came into the picture when the baseball team noticed a bunch of my ancestors on campus and saw us to be a great representation of what their team and college stands for – unique, energetic and hard working individuals.
