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.

Now I know what it takes to make a college/university team.

I'm a rising junior in high school. I thought camp went very well because you have to learn and better yourself with different skill workouts. You might get a little frustrated with yourself if you don't pick up the skill faster than others, but by the end of the camp week, you will have the skill faster than you thought. For me, playing full court games with some of the Wingate University girls was a really amazing experience. It was very different from playing with my regular team. Now I know what it takes to make a college/university team. You have to put in the pain and effort to get where you want to be. Playing college ball is where I want to be after high school.

Wonderful experience at Nike Camp
