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 information 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.
*Please note, this information is subject to change.

Overall Average RatingStars
Charlee absolutely LOVED this camp
August 3, 2021: Charlee absolutely LOVED this camp, and it's been her favorite one that she has attended. As a parent, I didn't know what to expect, but she was literally excited every morning to go. I think a large part of her excitement was the fact that Phil, Terrance and a lot of the other coaches from Hoops for Christ were there. They all have been a huge part of her success as a basketball player. They are highly skilled in the game and they are super passionate about every kid they interact with, which makes it easy for my child to love and continue to want to play the game. I also love the fact that they teach life lessons, not just basketball.
