Paul Webb’s start in the camp business began in 1965 while he was coach at Randolph-Macon College. His first camp was held at the college and drew 36 young basketball campers. Webb’s camps now draw 1,000 to 1,500 each year. Some of his former campers include NBA stars Moses Malone, Alonzo Mourning, Mark West, Ralph Sampson, Bryant Stith, J.R. Reid, Grant Hill and other NBA and college stars.

Coach Webb continued his camps in Hampton Roads after stepping down as head coach at Old Dominion University in 1985. He wanted kids to have more choices in the summer. Now his camps are among the most popular in the region. It’s his record of achievement and his dedication to great basketball and sportsmanship that make the Paul Webb Basketball Camp Virginia’s #1 Basketball Camp.
