TRIPLE-IMPACT COMPETITOR WORKSHOP
Created by the Positive Coaching Alliance, this workshop covers the concepts of bettering one's own self, teammates and the game. This workshop will be broken into three segments:
- Making self better: ELM tree of mastery. Redefining winning from a scoreboard definition into a mastery definition. Campers will focus on effort, learning, and making mistakes.
- Make teammates better: Filling teammates emotional tanks with positivity.
- Making the game better: Honoring the game through respect for the ROOTS of the game - Rules, Opponents, Officials, Teammates, and Self.
Mental Skills Training Sessions
Mental Skills sessions will teach kids how to be mindful of what they can and can't control, different levels of confidence (shaky, stable and supreme), and the levels of competitive spirit (vs opponent, vs themselves, and as a collaboration with their strengths and weaknesses). The overall goal of these training sessions is to expose campers to the history of the game, a way to approach the game with more positivity and the importance and impact of mental toughness.
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.
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 prior to the start of camp. 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.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
My athlete learned something new each day
July 17, 2017: This camp encouraged strong teamwork and good citizenship. My athlete learned something new each day and was excited to return the following day. Camp leadership was knowledgeable and worked well with the age group.
— Marisa W. Parent
Good focus on skill development
July 16, 2017: Good focus on skill development through repetition of specific plays. My son came out of the camp with a much better grasp of good passing and dribbling with his head up...which has clearly improved his game. Thumbs up to the coordinators, director and coaches. Well done!
— Anthony M. Parent
Great team building
July 15, 2017: I like that the staff seemed really excited to be with the kids. There was a lot of positive energy and that was very encouraging to see. I really appreciate the fact that staff gave the kids a lot of breaks in order to stay hydrated. There wasn't a time when I walked in, where I didn't feel like the atmosphere was very supportive. Overall, this was a really wonderful experience. Thank you to everybody who put it together, kept things organized, and kept the kids safe.
— Tonya S. Parent
The coaches were positive and encouraging
July 15, 2017: My boys had big smiles on their faces everyday I picked them up. The coaches were super positive and encouraging. I can't believe how much they improved in four days!

Our son was safe and having fun.
August 14, 2016: Coaches were great. We felt our son was safe and having fun. A suggestion would be to have some music in the gym, to start the day and get the kids fired up upon entering camp.
— Erin G.
My son really felt the camaraderie.
August 11, 2016: My son's favorite part of camp was honing his shooting skills with immediate, positive, and encouraging feedback. He really felt the camaraderie between the staff members and the campers, it was a very positive experience that made him love basketball even more than before.

Really liked the Riverdale HS gym
August 1, 2016: Camp was great. Really liked the Riverdale HS gym, smaller and made camp feel less scattered and more tight. Son/myself liked this session the best.
— Michelle S.
July 18, 2016: My son's coach was an excellent, attentive and supportive coach. My son felt supported and learned a great deal. He loved the team camaraderie. The head coach was super also. Strong, clear and garnered respect from all. Very nice that he asked the boys to thank their parents for giving them the opportunity to go to this wonderful camp. Much appreciated comment from him.
— Rick H.
July 15, 2016: This was my son's second year. He liked being remembered by the coaching staff. He was physically exhausted but not emotionally - perfect combo.
— Laura W.
My son felt supported and learned a great deal.
July 15, 2016: Trev was an excellent, attentive and supportive coach. My son felt supported and learned a great deal. He loved the team camaraderie. The head coach was super also.

This is the first camp my son wants to go back to.
June 25, 2016: My son does not like "camps," because he usually doesn't find them "fun" (He has attended various soccer, lacrosse, basketball, football, track, and swimming camps). This is the first camp where he has asked if he can go back again. Active and organized, the two best traits of any sports camp. Good energy and fun. My son liked all of the competitions, especially working on individual skills that led to scrimmages. A very positive overall experience. Kudos to the camp.
— Kjersten D.
