More Important Camp Details

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.  A closing ceremony will take place on the last day prior to check-out for full day campers. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony!


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 prior to the start of camp. 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.

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.

The staff treated everyone the same.

July 18, 2016: The staff was awesome. They didn't just cater to the top tier players. They treated everyone the same- which helped my girls immensely. They were very driven but not "in your face". The co-ed aspect was also beneficial and the daily/weekly rewards kept them focused.

My son came home tired and happy each day.

July 26, 2016: My son came home tired and happy each day. He also heard the message that he has to practice if he plans to get better, which is so important!

Positive, professional, and encouraging.

Hi Brendan-I just wanted to tell you that my son, had an amazing week at your basketball camp in Hyannis this week. He was eager and ready to go 30 minutes early each morning! The coaches were so positive and professional and encouraging. It was a good experience for him especially as it was his first experience to be coached in basketball by adults. I really liked how they spent lots of time each morning having the kids stretch and getting the kids to know the importance of stretching. Of course, he loved all the competitions.  Anyway, thank you and your coaches very much for a great start to the summer.

Even better than last year.

Compared to other camps I’ve been to, this was the best one so far. And I liked the camp this year even better than last year.
