The Intro to Hoops Camp is designed for our youngest campers that are new to sport. Campers will play with smaller size balls and utilize adjustable hoops to accommodate their height and help improve their skills and confidence. The focus of this camp is to use the game of basketball to teach life principles in a fun and engaging way. Campers will focus on fundamental skills and learn how to dribble, shoot, and pass and play fun games. Each day will focus on a "word of the day" which will be incorporated in the daily activities.

Check-in: Monday at 8:30am
Check-out: Thursday at 12:30pm
Meals: Lunch/snacks are not provided.
Daily Hours: MON-THURS 9am-12pm


The Complete Skills Camp helps players of all abilities develop athletically, refine fundamental basketball skills and enhance their skill set at the post, wing or guard position. The focus in our morning session will be developing skill work, and giving each camper the tools they need to continue to work on their game after camp. The afternoon session will be geared towards game play. We will do a draft and put each kid on a team: NBA for the older division and College for the younger division. A "champion" from each division will be named at the end of each week, as well as winners from individual competitions.

Check-in: Monday at 8:30am
Closing Ceremony: Friday at 11:30am
Meals: Lunch is not provided.
Daily Hours: MON-THURS 9am-3pm FRI 9am-12pm


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.


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.


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.
