Bio Continued...

Joel Green was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and was an All-City basketball player for all four years of high school. After graduating from high school, he attended the well known Hargrave Military Academy for prep school to exercise more college options. While there, he helped lead Hargrave to a #1 national ranking by USA Today and became top 30 players in the country.

Upon leaving Hargrave he began his collegiate career at Siena College where he was the top recruit. After an injury sidelined him, he was forced to sit out and red shirt his freshman year. To seek better opportunity, Joel transferred from Siena into the JUCO rankings to avoid sitting out yet another year by going to another 4 year school, which is NCAA regulation for transfers. While spending time in Junior College, Joel was able to win back-to-back National Titles making his way back to Division 1 basketball by signing with Rider University. After winning a Regular Season Title his senior season with the Broncs, he graduated with honors earning his BA in psychology. Joel began his professional career by playing in Ireland’s Superleague, which was followed by playing in both Spain and Venezuela while receiving a D-League contact along the way. A recent highlight for Joel was when he was invited to spend a few weeks with the 76ers during their preseason training.

Joel Green’s goal is to help enhance the performance of basketball players both physically as well as mentally. He provides players with the skills and mental approaches they need to get a leg up on the competition. Each Pro Level Training session is uniquely designed to incorporate the highest level of training methods done by some of today’s top professional athletes.

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.

Singing "Jinging Bell Rock" was a memorable moment.

July 29, 2016: I really love the way the coaches at the camp always pushed us to get better. One of the most memorable moments was when our group broke into "Jingle Bell Rock" at break time. Sometimes a couple other girls and I would join in the bigger girl games, and they gave us really good advice. My favorite part was when the girls were split into groups with a coach. One of the girls on each team made a layup, one made a foul shot, and the coach with them made a half court shot. We were all part of a great competition! For next summer, I think the camp would get even better if we had maybe another competition we could do. Everything else was great.

This camp helped my daughter through a tough time.

August 8, 2016: My daughter's grandmother passed away right before camp and she was really impacted by her death. This camp was an inspiration to her. It helped uplift her spirits and made her happy.

My daughter learned how to work in a team.

August 21, 2016: The staff was awesome with the kids! Overall, a great experience. My daughter learned how to work in a team and learned that you can only reach your goal by pushing yourself and working hard. It didn't like, however, that the bathrooms were right near the exits.
