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. The State of Massachusetts requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.

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 son had a blast!

    August 6, 2018: The camp was very educational and very helpful for my 13 year old son. Very organized and very competitive and a lot of fun. My son had a blast. Coaches were very friendly and very knowledgeable of the game. The staff worked as a unit together to make this camp competitive and fair for all the players. It was an honor to be a part of the Cal Berkeley basketball camp team. Looking forward to next year.

    We will be back next year!

    August 6, 2018: EXACTLY WHAT MY SON WAS LOOKING FOR! Real guidance and training to boost his confidence and effectiveness on the court. The coaches quickly recognized our son's strengths instead of just looking at his size and assuming he plays a certain position. They encourage his strengths and taught him how to build on it. We will definitely come back next year!

    Coaches and other players made him feel comfortable at camp.

    June 22, 2018: Brandon attended the camp without a friend this year. On the first day he quickly engaged with the counselors and players which helped him feel comfortable. He made friends quickly with other kids. He loved playing with the older kids because he learned how to dribble around the opponent.

    This was so fun for my son!

    June 23, 2016: We attended the Father-Son Camp. My favorite part was having Q&A with Coach Martin and his players and going down to the locker room to review film and get a glimpse at how pre-game scouting is done. For my 9 year old son, meeting the coach and his star players, Ivan Rabb and Jabari Bird, made his week. The coaches were key to the value offered in this Father-Son camp. Plus, we are die hard Golden Bear fans so this was a huge weekend for the both of us to share.

    Coach Wiley is the best

    June 27, 2016: Coach Wiley is the best; I am extremely impressed with him year after year. All camp counselors should have his level of energy, enthusiasm, sensitivity and compassion. He is remarkable and I'm so glad he returns to coach/help year after year. He is very very special. I loved that my son was exhausted, sore, and happy every day. This is the only camp he wants to keep doing year after year.

    Meeting the Cal players was definitely a highlight.

    July 29, 2016: It was great that this camp had fewer campers. It was less intimidating (especially for my 7 year old) and I felt like they got more out of the experience. Meeting the Cal players and seeing how the collegiate team worked, was definitely a highlight.

    The staff really showed they cared about the kids.

    I'm continually impressed.

    This is my son's 4th or 5th year attending this camp and it's always fantastic. I'm continually impressed with the positive messages and supportive coaches. I love that parents can come watch. I think my son loves not only the games but getting to see the Coach and any players who show up.

    A positive experience for my son!

    This was a great camp run by a professional and friendly team. My son can't wait to return next year. My son gained more confidence. He walked off the court tired, but smiling each day! This was such a positive experience for my son that he has already recommended to a few of his friends.

    I loved the coaches comments on the last day.

    I loved the coaches comments on the last day. They were great for both sports and in the class room. My son is just now learning about real competition and commitment both in the classroom and on the soccer field, particularly, and the coaches message rang very true.
