The Wilmington University Department of Athletics is pleased to welcome Harrison Singer as an assistant coach of the men’s basketball program in 2012-13.
Singer was most recently at Immaculata University in Malvern, Pa., where he was an assistant coach and head recruiting coordinator since 2008. Immaculata has had continuous success in the post season while Coach Singer was with the program, and they reached the conference semi-finals in 2012. He was a lead recruiter and key fundraiser for the program, and also oversaw the academic monitoring program for the men's basketball team.
Prior to working at Immaculata, Singer picked up his first college coaching experience at NCAA Division I Temple University through an internship for the 2006-2007 season. The following season, Singer moved on to become the head assistant coach at Harriton High school of Lower Merion in Rosemont, Pa., where he aided in preparation of practice and game plans as well as headed the scouting efforts and player development.
Outside of coaching, Singer is the chairmen and founder of the annual Get Gutsy 3-on-3 Basketball Fund-raiser Tournament which helps support the GI Department at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
In recent summers, Singer was involved with the USA Maccabi Junior Basketball Team which won a Gold Medal in the 2009 Games in Israel. He is also currently the head coach for the Philadelphia Maccabi men’s team which won a Silver Medal this past summer in the 2012 Games in Rockland County, N.Y.
Singer is also passionate about his volunteer work as the Camp Director for the PMBL (Philadelphia Men's Basketball League) AND-I Youth Basketball Camp for underprivileged youth in St. Elizabeth, Jamaica, where he runs a team camp and basketball league for grade school kids. In addition, Singer has experience working Hoop Group Elite as an assistant coach and instructor, as well as coaching in the Sonny Hill College League.
Singer is very familiar with the tri-state area, specifically Philadelphia, as he earned his Bachelor of Science degree from Muhlenberg College in 2005, where he played basketball. Singer graduated from Harriton High School of Lower Merion in the class of 2001, where he was a four year varsity player and two year captain.
A fan of the Jersey Shore, Singer resides in Philadelphia, Pa., where he also enjoys fishing, biking and playing basketball in his free time.
