Camp Meals

Lunch is not included. Please bring your own lunch. We will also have a concession stand open for lunch and drink purchase.

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.

Group Discounts

If five or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $20 discount. 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. All applications must be received at the same time via mail or fax.

This camp is such an encouragement to kids of all skill levels.

This camp is such an encouragement to kids of all skill levels. It is fun and the coaches are very intentional. This is my son and daughter's favorite camp of the summer! My daughter is so bummed that she has aged out of camp after 8th grade!

They made my daughter feel very special.

My daughter enjoyed 3 on 3 & 5 on 5 games. She really enjoyed Wacky socks Wednesday. I felt very comfortable leaving her at the camp by herself, knew she would be safe. She felt very special when they recognized her the first day as being the only camper from Missouri. The whole camp and staff was just wonderful, professional, organized and all were kid-friendly. We'll definitely return next summer.

Top notch instruction

This is the best basketball camp hands down. The coaches are outstanding, the instruction is great, they know every camper's name and help each and every camper improve their game. It is top notch instruction with so much fun built in that your camper will want to return year after year.

The kids were great and he had a wonderful time.

My son was the youngest camper and the smallest camper so I worried about his being accepted and he was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time.
