Do you offer scholarships?

Unfortunately, no.  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.

Do you offer group discounts?

Yes we do!  If you have 5 or more campers, we can offer $20 off per camper.  If you have 10 or more campers we can offer $40 off per camper. 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.

When will I receive my 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.

What is your cancellation/refund policy?

If you have to cancel, for any reason, we will issue you a VOUCHER for all tuition fees paid, valid through the following calendar year.  Your VOUCHER is transferable to any family member and may be used in the sport that you initially registered in.  Cash refunds will be given only with the purchase of Cancellation Protection (refer to following question for details).

Participants who leave early during their session, will receive a pro-rated VOUCHER, valid through the following calendar year.  For individuals who do not check-in or attend their registered session will receive a VOUCHER for all camp fees paid, valid through the following calendar year with the same rules as previously stated.

What is the optional Cancellation Protection fee?

US Sports Camps offers our camp families Cancellation Protection for $50 per session, due at the time of registration. Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of your camp tuition fees paid to date (Please note: $50 Cancellation Protection and Registration fee are non-refundable.) if you cancel for any reason before your final payment date (the first day of the month prior to the month your camp begins, i.e. final pay date of May 1st for any camp in your sport beginning in the month of June).

With Cancellation Protection, if you cancel after your final payment due date, we will issue you a camp voucher for your tuition payments made. Your camp voucher is valid through the following calendar year, is transferable to an immediate family member, and can be used for the sport in which you were registered.

I'm interested in working at camp. How do I go about getting a job?

Thank you for your interest in working at a Nike Tennis Camp. Unfortunately, we are not responsible for the hiring out of our offices. The Directors hire their own staff. If you are interested in working at a particular camp location please email us with the location, and a resume and we will forward it to the respective director. If they have openings and feel that you are qualified for the position they will contact you directly.

If my son/daughter is attending an Overnight Camp, what will the dorm arrangements be like?

When a camper signs up for an overnight camp, they are placed in a typical college dormitory in a double room.  We room the campers up with their roommate request.  If that cannot be accommodated, or you do not have a specific request, you will be placed with another camper your same age.  Each overnight camp is monitored and supervised in the dorms by our camp staff.

Is transportation to and from the camp available?

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.

Do you have services for early drop-off or late pick-up?

Are the basketball camps a good fit for all levels of players? How will they be broken up on the court?

Our basketball camps welcome all ability levels unless otherwise indicated. On the first day of camp, campers will be evaluated and then placed into groups according to their age and ability. Experienced and non-experienced campers alike can enjoy and thrive at Nike Basketball Camps.
