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.

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.

My daughter is hard to please and loved this camp!

July 15, 2016: My daughter absolutely loved this camp and told her AAU team how challenging and fun it is! She is usually that one that will always see the glass as half empty in sutations, in other words, she is hard to please. My daughter loved everything about this camp! It has built her confidence with the sport and her coaches have noted differences in her abilities. These include an increase in speed and free throws. Keep hiring the amazing coaches that you have!

My son was motivated and improved his skills.

July 15, 2016: My son enjoyed his camp. The staff was really friendly and he came back each day very motivated by what he had learned. He even did more training at home to improve his skills. Thank you for this great camp.

My son's coach became his hero.

July 16, 2016: This was my son's first camp experience. His coach became his hero. I heard so much about his coach that I feel like he was a member of our family by the end of the week! My son, who is normally sluggish to get up in the morning, was up and at 'em and waiting at the door for me every morning at 7am. The confidence and skills this camp gave to my son was a blessing. The coaches were all very supportive and were all very friendly. I can't say enough about how wonderful this camp experience has been. It was well worth the over 1 hour drive we did every morning and every afternoon to get to camp. I hope my son's coach sees many successful years in coaching and life. Thank you all for putting together such a great place for kids to learn. As a parent, seeing my child beam with exhausted joy at the new things he accomplished that day was truly a gift. And trust me, it was EXHAUSTED joy! I didn't see any areas that could be improved, other than air conditioning! Haha!

My daughter learned A LOT.

July 16, 2016: Camp was much more difficult than our daughter expected. She was very sore in the beginning and very tired at the end, but admitted that she really learned A LOT. Everyone was so nice, friendly, and great with the kids. You could tell as the kids were leaving and saying goodbye to their coaches.
