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.

Best camp I have been to

This was by far the best basketball camp I have been to so far. I liked the counselors and the skill building that we did. It was definitely worth the money and I will do it again next year.

Fantastic experience, great camp

Our oldes son had great skills coming into the camp and still brought a lot away from the week. Our younger child had less experience and this camp boosted his confidence. At the championship playoff, I noticed our older son was pulled aside and one of the coaches spent several minutes with him on a specific strategy to improve, which meant a lot to him. Thank you for both the team skills and individual attention you showed to the boys! We will do it again!

Thank you for everything!

My nephew and my son really enjoyed your camp. When we came to watch the Championships, the individual instruction as well as team skill building were evident. Your team of coaches spent a lot of time and energy honing the skills and increasing the confidence of these boys and girls. Thank you for everything!
