Orlando, Fla. – Golf Channel Academy (GCA) has teamed with US Sports Camps, Inc. (USSC), the nation’s largest operator of junior sports camps, to bring GCA-branded junior camps to a limited number of markets this summer, with plans to expand nationwide in 2018 and 2019.
USSC will be providing best practices, and marketing and administrative support for the camps, slated to operate this summer at the following four Golf Channel Academy locations:

Golf Channel Academy, a dedicated network of teaching facilities and world-class coaches, and US Sports Camps have a shared interest in developing junior golfers and creating long-lasting improvement through quality instruction. USSC, headquartered in San Rafael, Calif., has offered summer camps since 1975 and is the licensed operator of Nike Sports Camps.
“We’re very excited to be working with U.S. Sports Camps, a company with a longstanding track record of excellence in running junior camps,” said Scott Novell, president of Golf Channel Academy. “They will serve as a great, added benefit for our students, and further enhances Golf Channel Academy’s reputation as the place to go for quality instruction and education.”
