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 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. The State of Massachusetts requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.  


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.

Supportive Coaches

As a parent - I really appreciated the thorough and thoughtful evaluation that my son was given at the end of the week. My son had fun, but was intimidated because he had never played basketball before (other than "knock-out", etc) Once he told the coaches, they were really supportive, patient, and helpful.

My son became a stronger player

My 13 year old son attended the Framingham State University site, basketball camp. My son was very enthusiastic about this camp - he felt that his coach, Alex, was kind and supportive. Alex gave excellent instruction with technical skills, and was able to teach with a sense of humor. My son became a stronger player, and had a great time at this camp. As parents, we appreciate the technical skills being taught, while, at the same time, sportsmanship was celebrated.

My son was raving about this camp.

My son did not want to initially come to this camp, because he preferred a baseball. Afterwards, he was raving about this camp and wanted us to find anything closely related to this program. He was always exhausted after each session, but he was excited about all the work that was done. All of the drills really encouraged the player to work and get better.
