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. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.

Transportation

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.   

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.

One of the best summer basketball camps.

August 12: 2016: The camp was very well done and organized. It is probably one of the best summer basketball camps my son has attended. I liked the warmup drills to begin with and then pushing the kids through the day. My son gained some confidence and improved. Plan to attend every year (if possible).

My daughter has already asked to go back next year.

August 8, 2016: Joel runs a great camp and my daughter has been a rerun camper for 2-years straight. She has already asked to go back next year. Although she is an advanced player, she enjoyed playing with girls of various levels as well as  the strength and agility drills and coaches v kids games.
