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.

  • 5/5.
Wonderful experience.

Our son really loved his week at Nike Camp. He enjoyed meeting new friends and learning new skills from new coaches. His love for the game of basketball grew a little more during the week! All the competitions on the last day were a highlight for him; probably because his team were the 3-on-3 Champs! Overall he had a wonderful experience and would absolutely come back in the future!

We will send him again next year!

I can tell that my child was working hard and having fun because he came home happy and tired everyday after camp. He was sad when camp ended, so we will send him again next year!
