What to Expect from a Mike Allen Camp

When a player comes to a Mike Allen camp, they will experience much of the same advanced teaching and instruction as are offered at Nike Skill Academies and NBA workouts, but broken down in a progressive form that every player can handle no matter their age or skill level. Players will participate in a daily film session to watch the teaching points and moves they have learned. The film sessions summarize the true purpose of the camp – to teach players how to train on their own!  Camp Director and head camp trainer, Mike Allen takes a hands-on approach with all of the players and  is present at all times during camp. The ratio of coaches to players will never exceed 10 players to 1 coach, but even that matters very little. Mike's innovative teaching techniques are designed to make every player feel like they are alone with him in the gym. 80% of the camp activity is drill work to improve triple threat, dribble triple threat, creating space with the dribble and out of the triple threat, NBA dribble moves, shot mechanics, intense shooting, moving without the ball, finishing, footwork to finish, motion, reading the defense, and decision making. 20% of the camp activity is game play. This is where the attendees can practice what they have learned in a game atmosphere. Games are 2 on 2, 3 on 3, 4 on 4 & 5 on 5

Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.
