We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations.

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
She will be attending each year she is able!
June 23, 2018: This camp was extremely organized and structured. The coaches were very positive and encouraging yet maintained the perfect amount of discipline with their groups as a good coach will. Both my daughter and I are very pleased. She enjoyed all the drills and really liked the coaches. Her favorites were any drills where she was competing with other campers, especially the 3-on-3. She will be attending each year she is able.
