It is not required for parents/guardians to attend the Complete Skills Camp (Session II) check-in on Sunday between 3PM-5PM if their child attended the Weekend Shooting Camp (Session I).

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. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.

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. 

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.

*Please note, this information is subject to change.

    My daughter really enjoyed one on one time with her two coaches. The coaches were energetic and inspiring...My daughter was inspired by one of them by her impressive resume and being able to relate that to her and being able to show her the skills. Very positive and left a good impression for her that success is an option!!!

    Fabulous camp staff

    As a parent, I must say that all of the camp staff was so kind, helpful, and patient not only with the girls attending but also with the parents. They were so willing to help with anything, even the luggage. The camp staff should be commended, and my daughter will definitely be coming back next year and so on. Thank you.

    All of the coaches were nice

    All of the coaches were nice and took the time to answer question not only of the campers but the parents as well. My daughter had a blast and will likely attend a future Nike camp.

    This basketball camp was their favorite

    Both of my girls had a lot of fun at the Nike Basketball Camp. Of the three basketball camps they participated in this summer, they really enjoyed this one the most. They loved hanging out and eating in the dining halls with the older players and of course the fun skills!
