We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations.

It was great!
July 16, 2017: My favorite part of camp was when we played moneyball and even if we lost the other team had sportsmanship. I wouldn't change anything it was great!

My daughter is hard to please and loved this camp!
July 15, 2016: My daughter absolutely loved this camp and told her AAU team how challenging and fun it is! She is usually that one that will always see the glass as half empty in situations, in other words, she is hard to please. My daughter loved everything about this camp! It has built her confidence with the sport and her coaches have noted differences in her abilities. These include an increase in speed and free throws. Keep hiring the amazing coaches that you have!
— Colleen R. Parent
My son was motivated and improved his skills.
July 15, 2016: My son enjoyed his camp. The staff was really friendly and he came back each day very motivated by what he had learned. He even did more training at home to improve his skills. Thank you for this great camp.

My son's coach became his hero.
July 16, 2016: This was my son's first camp experience. His coach became his hero. I heard so much about his coach that I feel like he was a member of our family by the end of the week! My son, who is normally sluggish to get up in the morning, was up and at 'em and waiting at the door for me every morning at 7am. The confidence and skills this camp gave to my son was a blessing. The coaches were all very supportive and were all very friendly. I can't say enough about how wonderful this camp experience has been. It was well worth the over 1 hour drive we did every morning and every afternoon to get to camp. I hope my son's coach sees many successful years in coaching and life. Thank you all for putting together such a great place for kids to learn. As a parent, seeing my child beam with exhausted joy at the new things he accomplished that day was truly a gift. And trust me, it was EXHAUSTED joy! I didn't see any areas that could be improved, other than air conditioning! Haha!
— James P. Parent
My daughter learned A LOT.
July 16, 2016: Camp was much more difficult than our daughter expected. She was very sore in the beginning and very tired at the end, but admitted that she really learned A LOT. Everyone was so nice, friendly, and great with the kids. You could tell as the kids were leaving and saying goodbye to their coaches.
— Pam L. Parent
Great, friendly, and organized staff.
July 16, 2016: Great, friendly, and organized staff. My daughter's attending next week too!
