Camp Meals

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.

The counselors/coaches were incredibly motivating.

The counselors/coaches were incredibly motivating...my son would practice outside until dark after a full day of camp. We will definitely sign up again.

I had so much fun.

This was my first basketball camp and I was nervous about going. But I'm so glad that I went because I had so much fun. I can tell I'm better at basketball too.

Her shot has greatly improved.

I sent my child to camp and was happy to see her improve her skills on the basketball court. Her shot has greatly improved since attending camp.
