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. 


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.

Nike Camp was the best camp I have ever been to.

Loved it! The coaching staff was excellent. Coach Rudy, BJ Ivey, Coach Wade were all great! Nike Camp was the best camp I have ever been to. The coaches were awesome and so many of my friends were there! We learned a lot every day and I think my game improved by the end of the week! I loved it and can't wait for the next one!

Huge thank you to the Director and Camp Coaches at Riverside High for building basketball skills as well as confidence in my son.

I want to express my appreciation for all the support given to my son at camp.  He was new to the sport and tried his best with drills.  The encouragement and coaching really built his self-esteem.  He was surprised when the Director called his name for the award for the camper who worked hard, asked questions, listened, etc. The Nike backpack he won was perfect and even in his favorite color, blue. Thank you to everyone for coordinating the Nike camps. Huge thank you to the Director and Camp Coaches at Riverside High for building basketball skills as well as confidence in my son. The Nike Basketball Camp exceeded my expectations!  He's now going to try out for his middle school's team. Thank you.
