Summer '03 Camps Offered

Cobber Cage Camp Philosophy
Cobber Cage Camps are designed to offer top-quality instruction in a supportive, positive learning environment. Individual improvement is fostered through an emphasis on fundamentals, extensive game situation experiences, and unselfish team play. In addition to substantial court time, players will receive lectures and view videos on basketball skills, college preparation and the importance of a healthy lifestyle in reaching one's full potential.

Typical Camp Day

Accommodations and Meals
Resident Campers will live in one of Concordia's beautiful campus dormitories with supervision provided by their camp coach. Resident and Board Campers will eat on campus at Concordia's dining facilities.

Cobber Team Camps for Boys
Concordia is again offering its unique Team Camps. Team Camps, in which 8 to 10 players from a particular school or area register as a group, offer a great opportunity for teams to work togther to prepare for the upcoming season. Teams have ample practice opportunities and play 12 games in the course of the week, running their team's offenses and defenses and learning to work togther as a unit. These camps fill fast so call early to reserve your spot.

Camp Staff and Directors
The Cobber Cage Camps are staffed by outstanding college and high school coaches and prominent college players with sound teaching and guidance as their number one priority.

Duane Siverson, Director
Duane Siverson, has been Running Cobber men's basketball head coach since 1991. He has a 254-145 career coaching record.  In his 8 years as the Cobber men's head coach he has already put together two of the three winningest seasons in Cobber history.  His 1994-95 team went 18-7 (matching the second best win total in school history).

The 1995-96 squad went 16-4 in the MIAC, captured the MIAC playoff championship and was 21-6 overall. The 1995-96 Cobbers earned a first-ever NCAA men's basketball tournament bid. The 21 wins is a school record.

Siverson ended the 1996-97 season as the school's all-time winningest basketball coach. That team won 10 of its final 12 games and put the Cobbers in the MIAC's top 4 for the third consecutive year.

He served as an assistant coach for the Running Cobbers from 1978-1984, during which time the Cobbers captured two MIAC titles. In 1984 Siverson took over as head coach of the Cobber women's program and guided them to four MIAC titles, the 1988 NCAA Division III National Championship and seven NCAA tournament appearances. He was NCAA Division III National Coach of the Year in 1988. He became head coach of the Running Cobber program in 1991.

Siverson was raised in Casselton, ND, and later moved to Spokane, WA, where he graduated from high school. He received his B.A. degree from Yankton College in 1978 and earned honors for both academic and athletic achievements.

Siverson also serves as the Cobber women's golf coach and a member of the Health and Physical Education Department faculty. He and his wife Bonnie, and their two sons, Tyler and Jordan, live in south Moorhead.
