NEW YORK - This summer, Columbia women's basketball fans will have the unique opportunity to step onto the court with head coach and Columbia Athletics Hall of Famer Megan Griffith '07CC, as the Lions will host five sessions of basketball camps, providing opportunities for basketball players of every age and skill level.
"It’s a special time for Columbia Basketball," said Griffith. "What sets Columbia apart from the rest of the Ivy League is that we unite community with the vibrancy and energy of New York City. We are about the people within and around us. We invite all players that want to grow their game and work with our staff of teachers. This era of Columbia women’s basketball will be exciting. We would love to have eager players join us in Levien this summer."
