Meet our Camp Staff:
Our camp staff is the backbone of our program and what sets us apart from the competition. Building a great staff to teach all levels of the game to our campers, regardless of their experience or level as campers is our goal. Associate Director Tom Galvin has been with the Brian Beaury Basketball Camp for decades. Like many of Coaches’ staff, Coach Galvin began as a camper. Coach is the Varsity Girls Basketball Coach at Berne Knox Westerlo for the last 22 years. He’s one of the most decorated varsity coaches in upstate NY and does an excellent job each summer at camp assisting Coach Beaury manage the day to day aspects of camp.
Associate Director Alexandra Beaury Meehan, is a Registered Nurse and former standout High School and College basketball player. Alex helps to manage camp registration, daily check in and check out, as well as our Safety and Medical Program allowing us to meet all the standards of a Certified Children’s Camp in NYS.
The “rest of our camp staff” are all adults paid for their expertise as coaches. We have no “volunteer coaches, junior counselors or children coaching children” at our camps. Coach Beaury does a great job of hiring and combining successful High School and AAU coaches as well as current and former College and Professional Basketball players who have experience teaching and working with children. This hiring philosophy is what we base our success on.
All staff must pass an annual NYS & DSS Background check before being hired. And while we have a Registered Nurse at camp, the majority of our staff possess valid CPR & First Aid Training as required by NYS to coach in any High School or College.
