Staff Pro Level Training
Pro Level Training’s concept is very simple: cover all grounds with everyone that we work with. In addition to skills training, we place major emphasis on the strength, conditioning and performance sides of the game.View Pro Level Training's Bio ⟩
The idea of Pro Level Training was conceived from Founder Joel Green’s desire to bring the “Pro” style of training and preparation to youth athletes. He saw that there was a need for athletes to learn how to properly prepare their minds and bodies for the game of basketball.
Our goal is to improve the quality of individual on court performance by providing clients with the physical & mental tools needed to get to the next level of their career. We enjoy both training and educating players to get the most out of each session.
Boys: July 16-20
Girls: July 23-27
Check-in: Monday at 8:30am
Closing Ceremony: Friday at 11:40am
Meals: Lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch.
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. 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.

Camp was professional, prepared, enthusiastic and warm.
I thought that the staff were exceptionally professional, prepared, enthusiastic and warm. The boys I took to camp every day loved walking through the doors in the morning and ran down to the gym to get started. When I picked them up at the end of the day, they wanted to stay for more, even though they were worn out from the high quality of work and instruction they had experienced all day. My son loved that the camp emphasized hard work, professionalism and a high level of instruction, while still being fun and positive. Thank you!!
