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.

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.

Overall a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it.

The all star game with the counselors vs campers was great. Overall a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend it. My daughter came with 5 friends from North Andover and if Tom is running it again I can guarantee probably 5 or 6 more campers from North Andover.
