McCallie Basketball Camp emphasizes team work and sportsmanship. All aspects of basketball are taught. Our camp promises to provide boys the opportunity to improve their game and have fun at the same time.

The camp is divided into small groups with real game situations.

Campers will be challenged and encouraged with personal instruction as well as team concepts. By the end of camp, players know the art of basketball and the intricacies of strategy. Counselors are chosen from current and former McCallie basketball players. Campers in all sessions will receive a ball and camp t-shirt.

For all Day Camps there is a non-refundable $25 deposit to register for all Day Camps.  For Basketball School there is a $10 non-refundable fee.

David Conrady Named Head Basketball Coach

Veteran coach David Conrady will take over as the McCallie Blue Tornado varsity basketball coach for the 2018-2019 season, bringing an experienced leader and motivator to the Ridge to lead the Blue Tornado basketball program.

Conrady, who comes to McCallie from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, replaces John Shulman, who left McCallie following the 2017-18 season. Conrady will also serve as a mentor and advisor to McCallie’s younger students as chaplain in the McCallie Middle School.

Conrady has been at Prestonwood Christian Academy since the start of the 2016-17 season, and before that was head coach at Chattanooga Christian — where he was 2016 District Coach of the Year. At Prestonwood, he guided the Lions to the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools 6A state championship in 2017, and was named the 2017 Private School Coach of the Year by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches. He followed up that championship season with a run to the TAPPS 6A Final Four in 2018.

In addition to his high school experience, Conrady brings a wealth of college coaching experience to McCallie, with nine years of head coaching experience at Newberry College and North Greenville University. He has also served as an assistant coach at Mars Hill College in North Carolina and at Presbyterian College in South Carolina, and he was associate head coach at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga from 2004 to 2010.

At Newberry, he led his team to the first South Atlantic Conference Tournament finals appearance in school history, and took North Greenville to the semifinals of the NCCAA national tournament.

At UTC, Conrady served on Shulman’s staff for six years, and during that time the Mocs won three Southern Conference division titles, two Southern Conference championships and made two appearances in the NCAA Division I basketball tournament.

Conrady is a 1987 graduate of Furman University with a degree in Health and Physical Education. He was a three-year captain of the basketball team and played point guard, starting over 50 consecutive games. He helped the Paladins go 17-12 his senior season. He has international coaching experience, leading clinics in the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Portugal and the Ukraine. He has coached with Athletes in Action on their South America Tour, winning the Tournament of Champions in Lima, Peru, and served as National Basketball Director for SCORE International.
