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.

Check-in: Wednesday at 8:30am
Closing Ceremony: Friday at 3:30pm
Meals: Lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch.
Daily Hours: Wed-Fri 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.

He believes in himself way more
December 29, 2017: My son plays the 4 or 5 position on his team however these last few days gave him confidence with his ball handling skills to bring the ball up the court and play the outside position. Made me a tear up because now he believes in himself way more than he ever has

The coaches got to know you one on one outside of basketball.
I really enjoyed the camp. It was nice to meet new girls and share our interests. And we all worked really well together as a team, whether if it was not communicating enough or if it was that we were communicating so well together it was as if we had been playing together for months! Probably my favorite and most memorable moment was when we were having a break in the lunch room the coaches started talking about their favorite music and who their favorite artist was and they had this kind of back and forth conversation with the girls about music and what everyone liked. It was definitely nice that the coaches got to know you one on one outside of basketball.
