More Important Camp Details

Camper Evaluation

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability. A closing ceremony will take place on the last day prior to check-out for full day campers. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony!

Camp Meals

Lunch is not included. Please bring your own lunch or lunch money. 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. The State of Massachusetts requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.  

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, each camper is eligible for a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $40 discount. Teams can register online or via mail/fax.

  • To register your team online: Please have a team contact reach out directly to the USSC office at 1-800-645-3226 to receive a discount code to identify your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the coupon code during check-out.
  • To register your team via mail/fax: Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application. All applications must be received at the same time via mail or fax. If all members of your group pay with a Visa or MasterCard, feel free to fax your applications to 415-479-6061 to expedite processing.

My son was challenged by playing up a higher level.

August 12, 2016: Overall, my son had a great week. He was moved up to play with the older kids on the first day, because he is an experienced player and needed to be challenged more. This was fine, but as a parent, I would have preferred to have been consulted first. He liked his coaches and he liked that he was challenged by playing up a higher level.

My daughter came home with new skills every day.

August 12, 2016: My daughter was so excited to show us her new basketball skills she learned at camp. My daughter loved meeting other girls who love basketball too. She also talked about the "hot shot" drill and "knock out" game. She also enjoyed being with others who are also enthusiastic about basketball and especially liked her coach, Molly.

The coaches made my son feel comfortable.
