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.
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.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
The best basketball camp any of my 5 children have ever attended.
August 10, 2016: The best basketball camp any of my 5 children have ever attended. The camp was organized, the coaches were inspiring and knowledgable and the kids were well behaved. We heard all about Coach D'nay every night! She made this experience for my boy. Also, my son is allergic to some (not all) bees. He was stung and then realized that he didn't have his epipen. Yikes! Coach Huff and Coach Kia were TREMENDOUS!! They kept Declan calm, found him some Benadryl, and contacted me immediately. They handled a potential disaster with competence and grace. Simply an awesome experience!!!

The coaches were amazing and very knowledgeable.
August 8, 2016: My daughter has learned some valuable drills that she is still practicing and some that she has implemented in her game ( she is playing on a travel ball team). I stayed for the beginning of the day and the coaches warmed them up well and worked them hard for the whole day. Coach AJ would work with the kids that got there early and help them in the areas he saw that they needed improvement. He also would always give them an encouraging word and he was always honest. The coaches were amazing and very knowledgeable. I hope they come back next year and have a two-week camp!

Camp was very well organized.
August 13, 2016: My favorite part of camp was the ballhandling drills and the stretches during the morning. I believe the camp was very well organized and the coaches were very into teaching and kept the kids motivated.
