Elida has won three Western Buckeye League championships, along with advancing to the Ohio Division II state championship game in 2012.  In addition to team success, Smith has helped develop two Division II Ohio Players of the Year in Reggie McAdams (currently at University of Akron) and Purdue-signee Dakota Mathias.

Following a successful prep playing career at Elida, where he was a two-time all-league honoree, Smith went on to a tremendous collegiate career at Division III power, The College of Wooster from 1999-2003.  He finished his career with over 1000 points, and still ranks in the top 5 in Fighting Scots history in 3 point FGs made, 3 point percentage, and steals.  He twice garnered All-NCAC awards.  During his four years, Wooster posted a record of 101-17, won 2 regular season and 3 conference tournament championships, and advanced to the NCAA Division III Final Four, finishing 3rd in 2003.

Camp Hours: MON-THURS 9AM-4PM
Camp Meals: Lunch is not included. Please bring your own lunch.

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.
