More Important Camp Details

Camp Meals

Lunch is not provided. Players need to bring their own lunch, snack and water bottle.


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. 


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.

If 10 or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $40 discount. Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application.

Camper Reviews

My son formed a wonderful relationship with Mike Allen.

July 6, 2016: Mike is a wonderful man and a great coach. We were concerned about the small camp size but it ended up being a great week for our son. He learned a lot and formed a wonderful relationship with the coach, Mike Allen. He worked them hard but they also had fun excursions which broke it up. My son's favorite part was forging a relationship with Coach Allen. He also felt he got much stronger from the conditioning and loved the scientific computer analysis of his shot accuracy. Thanks Coach Mike for helping us understand your method and plan and for giving our son your time and expertise. You made the week great for him.
