Camp Director Joel Green
Joel Green, former professional player, founded Pro Level Training after realizing his undeniable passion for teaching and coaching. His goal is to help enhance player performance both physically and mentally by providing them uniquely designed skills and mental approaches they need to get a leg up on the competition.View Joel Green's Bio ⟩
Joel Green was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA and was an All-City basketball player for all four years of high school. After graduating from high school, he attended the well known Hargrave Military Academy for prep school to exercise more college options. While there, he helped lead Hargrave to a #1 national ranking by USA Today and became top 30 players in the country.
Upon leaving Hargrave he began his collegiate career at Siena College where he was the top recruit. After an injury sidelined him, he was forced to sit out and red shirt his freshman year. To seek better opportunity, Joel transferred from Siena into the JUCO rankings to avoid sitting out yet another year by going to another 4 year school, which is NCAA regulation for transfers. While spending time in Junior College, Joel was able to win back-to-back National Titles making his way back to Division 1 basketball by signing with Rider University. After winning a Regular Season Title his senior season with the Broncs, he graduated with honors earning his BA in psychology. Joel began his professional career by playing in Ireland’s Superleague, which was followed by playing in both Spain and Venezuela while receiving a D-League contact along the way. A recent highlight for Joel was when he was invited to spend a few weeks with the 76ers during their preseason training.
Over the years Joel has been featured in multiple commercials, print ads and also on a national TV show. Joel is the 2017 face of Cheez-It Crackers' latest national basketball campaign. This feature was a dream come true and gave him the opportunity to play in the Celebrity Crunch Classic, coached by Magic Johnson, playing against Charles Barkley's team of celebrities. In addition to all of this, Joel also travels to speak to many organizations, schools, and programs to help motivate & inspire others to maximize on their talents, skills and untapped potential.

Staff Pro Level Training
Pro Level Training’s concept is very simple: cover all grounds with everyone that we work with. In addition to skills training, we place major emphasis on the strength, conditioning and performance sides of the game.View Pro Level Training's Bio ⟩
The idea of Pro Level Training was conceived from Founder Joel Green’s desire to bring the “Pro” style of training and preparation to youth athletes. He saw that there was a need for athletes to learn how to properly prepare their minds and bodies for the game of basketball.
Our goal is to improve the quality of individual on court performance by providing clients with the physical & mental tools needed to get to the next level of their career. We enjoy both training and educating players to get the most out of each session.

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.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
July 29, 2018: This is my daughter's second year attending the camp. She was thrilled to be back and excitedly told me about all of he skills that were taught and the competitions that were held. She looked forward to every day!
— Mariellen K. Parent
July 28, 2018: This is a wonderful camp! Thus far, this has been the most rewarding & fun camp my son has ever gone to. The coaches are great! They are very knowledgeable and they challenge the campers to up their game and skills while allowing each child to grow at their own rate. My son has made some great friends too, whom he is already in contact with. He will definitely be back next year!!!
— Rosanna F. Parent
July 28, 2018: I liked how this camp had everyone practice drills at the “same time”. From a parent perspective, other camps that have long lines where child waits her turn does not give her maximal exposure to ball handling skills so this camp was good that way-it was non stop ball handling.
— Heidi O. Parent
July 28, 2018: The coaches were very friendly and connected well with all of the girls. An amazing gesture and just about the nicest thing anyone has ever done for my daughter. What an exceptionally nice person to do that!

This was truly a positive experience for us both!
July 22, 2017: The biggest highlight for my son was playing the 5on5 games and the coaches vs campers game. It was my son's first year attending the camp and I've never witnessed him so anxious about waking up in the morning, making sure he's on time, excited about learning new skills and improving his existing ones. This was truly a positive experience for us both! We'll definitely return next year.
— April H. Parent
Being the best you can at what your trying to accomplish was outstanding!
July 22, 2017: The emphasis put on setting goals, working hard and being the best you can at what your trying to accomplish was outstanding! I would recommend encouraging the kids to exchange numbers with each other in order for them to stay in contact after camp.
— Lenorah S. Parent
The conditioning parts were challenging but rewarding.
July 22, 2017: Running with parachutes on the back was a highlight for my son! He found the conditioning parts challenging but rewarding after he was able to do them. That was something he talked about after each day and I could see helped boost his self esteem.

My daughter learned how to work in a team.
August 21, 2016: The staff was awesome with the kids! Overall, a great experience. My daughter learned how to work in a team and learned that you can only reach your goal by pushing yourself and working hard. It didn't like, however, that the bathrooms were right near the exits.
— Jesse H. Parent

— Jenifer R. Parent
Singing "Jinging Bell Rock" was a memorable moment.
July 29, 2016: I really love the way the coaches at the camp always pushed us to get better. One of the most memorable moments was when our group broke into "Jingle Bell Rock" at break time. Sometimes a couple other girls and I would join in the bigger girl games, and they gave us really good advice. My favorite part was when the girls were split into groups with a coach. One of the girls on each team made a layup, one made a foul shot, and the coach with them made a half court shot. We were all part of a great competition! For next summer, I think the camp would get even better if we had maybe another competition we could do. Everything else was great.
— Maddy K. Camper
Hope to see you next summer!
July 18, 2016: Staff and campers were upbeat and I had fun. Hope to see you next summer!
