US Sports Camps, Inc. is pleased to offer several new summer basketball camp locations for both boys and girls. The 2011 schedule features camps from coast to coast with overnight and day camp offerings. The Nike Basketball Camp lineup is headlined by new locations at Findlay College Prep in Henderson, Nevada (Boys) and East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina (Girls).

Nike Basketball Camps provide focused, intensive training that is essential to improvement for all skill levels. Every facet of the game is covered with an emphasis on fundamentals to help players become valuable team members. At each location, campers are broken into groups with other players of similar age, abilities and goals. Each camp staff does their best to advance players to the next level, keeping in consideration each camper’s experience and desire to improve.

Long-time Nike Camp director, Lee Miller conducts various camps around the Southeast and shares his vision for campers: “We tell players ‘don't practice at the level you are at now, practice at the level you want to be at in four years’”. He also strives for each camper to “get 1% better each day they step on the court for camp. Each day we give campers a quote that will help remind them to give their very best.”

Since our inception in 1996, we have hosted over 38,000 campers at our basketball camps. Last summer alone, approximately 4,000 young athletes got better at a Nike Basketball Camp – you can also take your game to the next level this year.

“The emergence of so many showcase tournaments, games, and teams has overshadowed the importance of improving your individual game each year,” says Brent Koonce, VP of Basketball Operations for US Sports Camps. “Our camps provide that opportunity with some of the most respected coaches in the nation, in a safe learning environment.”
