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. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.
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 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.

Best day camp ever attended!
June 3, 2018: I loved how friendly the camp staff was to my child and myself. Their energy was amazing. Mason enjoyed it and will be returning to the next camp at Piney Grove Middle. We also loved the hand written evaluation at the end. The best day camp he has ever attended!

Gave me the confidence.
June 7, 2017: Great camp. It helped me improve my ball handling and knowledge of the game. It also gave me the confidence and strength to drive to the basket. My favorite part of the camp was testing out the skills I learned in our 3v3 and 5v5

The staff/coaches were great!
June 5, 2017: The staff/coaches were great! They left a lasting impression on my son. Super energetic, professional, and encouraging. Looking forward to another camp in the future. My younger children are anxious to attend once they are old enough.

Great camps offered by the organization!
June 5, 2016: These are great camps offered by the organization! We have attended multiple camps per summer for past few years. The camps are a great balance of fun and learning experience. I do wish there was an ability to drop off a little earlier would help the working parents.
