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. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.
Transportation is not to or from camp. Garden City offers easy access to New York City via car and public transportation. The Long Island Rail Road has a stop just a short walk from campus, and the ride to Midtown Manhattan is just 45 minutes. The railroad also connects commuters to Brooklyn and Queens and to regions across Long Island.
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.
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.

Garden City, New York is one of Long Island’s most historic and scenic towns. Located fewer than 20 miles from Manhattan, Garden City is a tight-knit community of just over 20,000 residents. Aptly named, the village is an oasis of bucolic beauty with fine facilities—such as excellent public schools—as well as a thriving downtown with a mixture of small shops and restaurants and national retailers. Garden City provides a safe and elegant home for Adelphi’s main campus.
Campers will practice and play in the Center for Recreation & Sport, the home facility of the Panthers. Opened in 2008, the CRS is the home of Adelphi Athletics and one of the newest buildings on campus. The 76,000 square footfacility houses athletic department personnel, coaches and assistant coaches offices as well as the equipment and athletic training and rehabilitation rooms. It is alsohome to the men's and women's basketball teams as well as the volleyball team. The three-court gymnasium has seating for 800 spectators which can be expanded to1,000 when using the track for additional standing space.
