More Important Camp Details

Camp Meals

Lunch is not provided but will be available for purchase (cash only). Please bring a packed lunch or lunch money.

Camper Evaluation

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.

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.

Group Discounts

If five or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $40 discount. Teams can register online or via mail/fax.

  • To register your team online: Please have a team contact reach out directly to the USSC office at 1-800-645-3226 to receive a discount code to identify your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the coupon code during check-out.
  • To register your team via mail/fax: Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application. All applications must be received at the same time via mail or fax. If all members of your group pay with a Visa or MasterCard, feel free to fax your applications to 415-479-6061 to expedite processing.

Coach Henry and staff are positive role models.

June 14, 2016: Coach Henry and his entire staff, regardless of age, reflected the positive reinforcement that is too often lost in modern youth athletics. My son came home reinvigorated and prepared for increased training.

My kids favorite camp.

June 14, 2016: Both of my kids said this was their favorite camp they have ever been to. Thanks.

My son learned something new every day.

June 17, 2016: My son was hesitant to go because he felt that he wouldn't learn anything. I asked him every day what he did at camp. He told me play-by-play and every day, there would be part of his story where he would say, "...and I learned..." I'm thankful we signed him up and he learned a few things that he will use as long as he decides to incorporate athletics in his life.

Thumbs up!

June 21, 2016: Well organized, good gym, and my boys didn't complain. Freebies including t-shirt and balls. $5 for a piece of pizza wasn't the best part. My kids give this camp a thumbs up!

Loved the shooting camp!

Everyone was extremely nice, knowledgeable and genuinely involved with the campers. My son struggled a bit but the coaches encouraged him to not give up. Everyday he came home wanting to show me something he learned.
