Dan Monson has rebuilt the Long Beach State basketball program in his seven seasons with the Beach.
Monson has taken a program that won just six games in his first season at LBSU to three Big West titles, seven top three finishes, three NIT appearances and a trip to the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
Long Beach State has averaged over 20 wins per season over the last six years, and those wins have come while Monson's teams have played the nation's toughest non-conference schedule in each of those six seasons.
Monson's success at Long Beach State has been rewarded with three Big West Coach of the Year awards, as well as back-to-back NABC All-District Coach recognition from 2010-11 and 2011-12. The conference coaching award following the 2012-12 season marked the fourth time that Monson has been recognized as a league's top coach, previously winning the honor as the West Coast Conference Coach of the Year in 1998 following his first season at Gonzaga.

The home of Long Beach State basketball for over 20 years and one of three true pyramid structures in the United States, the Walter Pyramid has become a nationally recognized icon for the university and the city of Long Beach. Because of its dramatic appearance, its unique multi-purpose capability and its lure for television production, the Walter Pyramid is one of the finest collegiate athletic facilities in the western United States.
The structure's distinctive cobalt blue exterior has permanently altered the city's skyline. It rises 18 stories above north campus and can be seen for miles in all directions. It has provided a quantum leap in both the image and effectiveness of the Long Beach State athletics programs, with an immediate impact on the 49ers' fan base, scholarship fundraising, recruiting and revenue generation. Nearly 200,000 visitors pass through the Walter Pyramid's entrances annually.

How do I know if my camper has been accepted into Long Beach State Basketball Camp? When you have successfully completed the online application and your credit card payment has been accepted, you will receive a confirmation email to the address you associate with your online account. This email confirms your camper's admittance into camp. There is nothing sent by standard mail. If you believe that your registration went through successfully but you have not received your confirmation email, please check your junk email folder. If you still cannot find your confirmation, please email us at BeachBasketballCamps@gmail.com.Will I need to sign any medical or liability releases for my camper? Yes, you will need to sign both a medical and liability release for your camper and submit either electronically or in-person on the first day of camp in order for your camper to be eligible to participate. Campers may not participate until these liability forms are formally completed by the legal parent or guardian. The forms will be provided to you after confirmation of your camper's registration. Does Long Beach State Basketball Camp provide scholarships or financial assistance? Unfortunately, we are limited by NCAA regulations and are unable to provide financial assistance to our camp. What role do Coach Monson, his staff, and any former and current Long Beach State student-athlete? Coach Monson is very involved with the camp, and with few exceptions, speaks to the camp during the week. The rest of the current Long Beach St coaching staff is around the camp daily, as well, and the assistants conduct lectures for the camp, often incorporating drills with current LBSU student-athletes in those lectures. Former and current student-athletes also speak to the camp and sign autographs when available. We always have former and current student-athletes around camp but, because of their busy and sometimes unpredictable schedules, are unable to announce in advance which student-athletes will be there in which sessions.
