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.

It was a great gift for my two boys coming from France!!!!

The professionalism, the attitude and the way the week was organized, each day we worked on a specific skill! The coaches were very nice and friendly. They were also very fair in the making of the teams. No one was left out and you would always leave the camp better experienced than that first Monday, says my 12 year old! Thank you to everyone. It was a great gift for my two boys coming from France!!!!
