ULTIMATE CHAMPIONS PHILOSOPHY
In order to be successful there has to be a strong foundation. If a builder is building a house, he must have a strong foundation in order for the house to stand properly over time. Well, the same is for basketball. There must be a strong foundation in fundamentals for continuous individual improvement. In addition to an emphasis on skill development, camp will also aim to improve each players athleticism and explosiveness.
Extend your camp experience with Competition Friday! Competition Friday is the chance to come back the Friday after camp ends and put the new skills you've learned to the test. Competition Friday runs 9am-4pm at an additional cost of $50. The schedule will include a full day of competitive games including 2 on 2, 3 on 3, 5 on 5, NBA Skills Challenges, Hot Shot, Dunk Contests and much more! All players will be divided into groups based on their age and skill level. Please note, this day is exclusively for enrolled campers.
POST-CAMP PERSONALIZED SKILLS ACADEMY (NEW!)
In Post-Camp Training Personalized Training, Ultimate Champions will be offering skill-specific training catered to the need of each player. The focus is to find out the challenge area of each player and spend the entire session working to improve the challenge areas. It will run Monday-Thursday, from 4pm-5pm, and be $80 (for all 4 days).
Nike Versa Tack Basketballs can be purchased during registration for $25. Players can choose between a size 6 (28.5", standard girls) or size 7 (29.5", standard boys) ball, which will be passed out on the last day of camp. Please note that it is not required to bring a basketball to camp as they are provided by the staff for camp instruction. *Sales will stop on April 1st.
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.
HEALTH & RELEASE FORMS
All registered campers are required to have a parent or legal guardian fill out US Sports Camps’ mandatory Health & Release Forms online before arrival at camp. This camp does NOT require a doctor's signature on the forms.
A detailed Information Packet containing check-in location and address, on-site staff contact information, a checklist of things to bring, site-specific forms, and more will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. To check if your Information Packet is ready, click here.
PEACE OF MIND POLICY
At US Sports Camps, we hope you will not have to cancel your enrollment in camp. If you do though, there are options. For details on our Cancellation Policy, including cancellations of camp by US Sports Camps, please visit: www.ussportscamps.com/peace-of-mind-policy.
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.
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.
