Routine Option

Coach Liz will be offering her services to help campers clean up their current floor routine or help choreograph a new routine. These options are merely add-ons to the camp day, before or after a camp day or during lunch. The clean up routine option, about an hour, is $200 and choreographing a new routine, about two hours, is $450.

Camper Evaluation

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. Campers will be evaluated and split up into smaller groups according to age and ability and instruction will be tailored to each level's needs.

Camp Meals

Lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch.

Transporation

Due to University and NCAA Policies, we are not allowed to offer any transportation to and from camps. The airport closest to the Berkeley campus is Oakland International Airport; San Francisco International Airport is also within a reasonable distance. There are several options that we suggest. There are a few shuttle services that offer transportation to and from Oakland & San Francisco International Airports. Reservations must be made at least a few days in advance, you can make reservations over the phone or online (see below).

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.  Campers must bring their health and release forms with them to check-in 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.

    My daughter had a wonderful time.

    My daughter had a wonderful time learning from the coaches and meeting other gymnasts. It would be fun for the girls to stay in the dorms and have an overnight experience.
