Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you have a child flying to camp, private arrangements for campers arriving at the Hartford Bradley Airport may be made by visiting:
http://www.bradleyairport.com/Transportation.aspx. If campers are flying into LaGuardia Airport, please visit their website: http://www.panynj.gov/airports/laguardia.html. 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.
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 Connecticut 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.
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.
- 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.

Daily basketball instruction will take place at SHU's impressive William H. Pitt Health and Recreation Center. The $17.5 million Pitt Center, which opened in August 1997, serves as the home court for both men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs, as well as our fencing and wrestling programs. The three-level, 141,000 square-foot complex features a four-court layout and seats over 2,000 people for basketball.
The lower level of the Pitt Center received a major facelift in the summer of 2007. The 5,000-plus square-foot weight room now reflects a top level Division I weight room with the addition of state of the art weight training equipment, new Mondo rubberized flooring, lighting and a paint job that truly reflects the spirit of Pioneer Athletics. Other changes made were office renovations for men’s & women’s basketball and football, added locker room space and a total refurbishing of the aerobics room wood floor. The lower level also houses locker rooms for our athletic teams and members, the Pioneer Wrestling Room, Equipment Room and Athletic Training offices. The main level of the center houses the Athletic Communications suite and a four-court field house with indoor track and retractable batting cage. A floating wood floor is used for basketball and volleyball competitions. 4,500 square feet of clinical space is dedicated to the Sacred Heart University Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center. Contained in this space are examination rooms, faculty offices, and therapy labs, as well as a physical therapy clinic.
