Mark Davis Basketball Camp is for boys and girls of all ages and skill levels

Mark Davis came out to Australia in 1985 to play with the South Adelaide Panthers after playing in New Zealand and winning a Championship with ‘Dorados Chihuahua’ in Mexico.

Mark Davis brought a style of his own to Australia with his natural skill and flair, Adelaide quickly warmed to their new adopted son. Mark raised the profile of basketball not only in Adelaide but also throughout the NBL.

It was not long before legendary coach Ken Cole signed Mark up to the West End 36ERS – where Mark took to the Apollo stadium like his own ‘playgrounds’ back home and led the team with his MVP Performance to their unforgettable 1986 Championship win.

Born and raised in Philadelphia, USA. Mark toughed it out to gain his individual status both on the court and in the playgrounds sharpening his basketball skills, he then headed off to College where the basketball competition grew stronger and opportunities and respect had to be gained.

Mark knows and has experienced the importance of teamwork and self-motivation whether through sport or everyday life and business. This is the means through which Mark Davis Camps operates. Mark, or The Chairman of the Boards to which he is also known as throughout the Australian Basketball family has gained well-deserved respect around the league from his fans, media and fellow NBL players.

With the Mark Davis Camps program, Mark regularly visits Country SA to assist the youth by running basketball programs and competitions within the communities and also mentoring those needing the extra assistance.

Away from the court and along with his Mark Davis Camps program, Mark is also the Head Basketball Coach at Adelaide’s Prince Alfred College.
