ASA and Nike Basketball Camps are geared for all ages and abilities. Campers are expected to work hard, be receptive to coaching, exhibit discipline, have a strong work ethic, and be serious about basketball. As a staff we pride ourselves in being a teaching camp first with scrimmages and contests will take place throughout the week. 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 closing ceremony will take place on the last day prior to check-out for full day campers. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony!
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 prior to the start of camp. 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. The State of Massachusetts requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.
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.

Excited to come back again next summer
July 29, 2017: My son came out with a positive attitude and with better basketball skills than he had before. William loved the camp. He is excited to come back again next summer. He loves playing basketball, but is not a real competitive child. This helped him enjoy the game and learn new skills as well as have confidence on and off the court!

Becca loved the camp as she met new friends and improved her all round basketball skills.
July 21, 2017: Becca loved the Camp as she met new friends and improved her all round basketball skills. It was a huge thing for us to bring Becca 9yrs, to the Camp in the USA all the way from Scotland. The initial contact via email, the further registration process, then arriving at Camp, everything was done very professionally and efficiently by Coach Gilmore and her staff. The whole week was a fantastic experience. Definitely planning a return visit.

Best camp ever!
July 15, 2016: My son said it was the best camp ever! He loved how much he learned and the one on ones.
— Christina B. Parent
The staff treated everyone the same.
July 18, 2016: The staff was awesome. They didn't just cater to the top tier players. They treated everyone the same, which helped my girls immensely. They were very driven but not "in your face". The co-ed aspect was also beneficial and the daily/weekly rewards kept them focused.
— Susan T. Parent
My son came home tired and happy each day.
July 26, 2016: My son came home tired and happy each day. He also heard the message that he has to practice if he plans to get better, which is so important!
— Karen M. Parent
Everything was great
July 10, 2015: It was a great experience and I learned so much more than I knew about defensive, offensive, and ball handling skills. I'd definitely do this camp again next year!!
