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.

If 10 or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $40 discount. Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application.

My son said this was his favorite camp ever. EVER.

After the first day of camp, my son said this was his favorite camp ever. EVER. Nice job.  I think the quality of the staff and the organization of their day allowed the kids to learn while having a great time. My son has already asked to go next year.

My son could not wait to get back on Tuesday.

My son is a basketball lover, and always comes to me for help with certain skills, I do my best, but I have been working on ball handling and that was what he was wanting to get out of camp. The very first day he was elated to spend most of the say on ball handling! He could not wait to get back on Tuesday. Thank you!

The written skills assessment at the end of the week was great.

The quality of the staff and the organization of the day allowed the kids to learn while having a great time. The written skills assessment at the end of the week was great - it allowed my son to see how he advanced from the week of drills and games.  Thank you!
