Former New York Knicks All-Star Forward Charles Oakley joins the Sports Academy at Brookwood Camps roster of professional instructors in 2019. Known as one of the best rebounders in the game, Oakley was also known as a team leader in every locker room in which he played. After a 19-year NBA playing career, Oakley stayed connected to the game with a stint as an assistant coach for the Charlotte Bobcats. He currently coaches in the BIG3 professional 3-on-3 basketball league. We are excited to welcome Oakley as our newest Brookwood pro instructor.
In addition to Oakley, our basketball academy features instruction from Camp Director Scott Fiedler, basketball director Chris Cummings, and guest pros such as Tim Capstraw and Mark Coffman.
Prior to becoming a Brookwood Owner/Director, Scott Fiedler spent decades playing and coaching the game of basketball. He was one of the youngest coaches to become head coach of a college program and spent many years as an assistant at the Division 1 level of NCAA basketball.
Chris Cummings spent 20 years as a professional player in Germany prior to a stellar coaching career in the German pro leagues.
Tim Capstraw is a former NCAA Division 1 Head Coach and currently works as radio broadcast analyst for the Brooklyn Nets.
Mark Coffman spent over 25 years coaching at the Division 1 level and currently runs a youth basketball academy in the Southern California area.
