Meals: Lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch.
Daily Hours: MON-TH 9am-4pm
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 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.

Your passion and drive are contagious!
July 22, 2014: This camp was better than any I've attended. Lance was organized. You could tell he put a lot of time and work into the camp. Lance loves basketball and it showed every day on the court when he worked with me and the other campers. All the coaches were outstanding each had their own quality and Curtis made me feel important. It's not often you get to work with professional athletes that bring what they know to little kids like us. Not only did they take the time to teach us, but they did it with such passion. Prior to this camp, I was discouraged, but Lance and Curtis showed me so many qualities I had and could have to becoming a better all around player! They rekindled a fire in my spirit and made me want to work that much harder to achieve my goals. I'm grateful I attended this camp and left the camp with so much more than just an interest in basketball. My self-esteem and passion have returned. Thank you for having this camp and THANK YOU to all the coaches your passion and drive are contagious!
— Jordan O. Camper
