About Camp Director CHANDRA JOHNSON:
Accomplishing one of her dreams, Chandra Johnson has directed her own basketball camp since 2013. “I want to continue to give back to younger girls who are just starting to realize how special this sport really is”. She hopes to provide this camp for many years to come. “I’ve been blessed to have incredible life opportunities that influence my work with youth and my belief in their chances for good results".
Chandra Johnson began playing basketball in the 3rdgrade. A multi-sport athlete (volleyball, softball, track, basketball) at Eau Claire North High School, she had the opportunity to
choose among various college offers between the two sports she excelled at most (basketball and volleyball). She accepted a Division 1 scholarship to play basketball at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay (UWGB). While at UWGB, she was a member of the 2000-2001 Academic National Champion Team (highest team GPA in NCAA), earned 1999 (MVP) and 2003 conference all-tournament team honors, and made 4 appearances in post-season play. Playing under Coach Kevin Borseth all four years, Johnson made her biggest impact in her senior year, helping carry her team to the field of 32 in the 2003 NCAA tournament. After completing her senior year, Johnson was invited to training camps with a number of WNBA teams. She made the 2003 roster of the Los Angeles Sparks as an undrafted free agent, playing behind center Lisa Leslie on the 2003 Western Conference Championship and WNBA championship runner-up team. They lost to the Detroit Shock in 5 games. Johnson’s last stop in her playing career was with a professional team in Athens, Greece. In 2009 she was inducted into the Eau Claire North Husky Athletic Hall of Fame. Since college, Johnson has worked with both boys and girls at basketball clinics, camps, and in private lessons. She has coached high school boys traveling teams and assisted coaching varsity girls basketball at Green Bay West High School.
