ASA and Nike Basketball Camps are geared for all ages and abilities. Campers are expected to work hard, be receptive to coaching, exhibit discipline, have a strong work ethic, and be serious about basketball. As a staff we pride ourselves in being a teaching camp first with scrimmages and contests will take place throughout the week. 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. A closing ceremony will take place on the last day prior to check-out for full day campers. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony!
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.

The gymnasium seats 1,200 patrons for Saint Anselm men's and women's basketball contests and also serves the college community in other capacities, including functioning as the home court for the Saint Anselm women's volleyball program in the fall. The gymnasium is also utilized for occasional social functions and intramural and recreational sports.
Session II will take place at the Carr Center on campus. Built in 1982, the Carr Center is named in honor of Saint Anselm alumnus John Maurus Carr '34, a benefactor and member of the college's board of trustees for many years and a former president of the alumni association. The Carr Center features three regulation size basketball, volleyball, and tennis courts; three regulation racquetball courts; a 9,000 square foot fitness center available for use by the Saint Anselm community; a varsity weight room for use by the college's varsity athletic programs; and is home to the college's athletics administrative offices. The widely used Carr Center allows for a number of different activities at once, whether they are organized club sports, volunteer programs, clinics, or a simple pickup basketball game.

Reasonable coast with a lot of ball time.
August 16, 2016: I would recommend the Nike camps to others. Good experience at overnight camp for two years and a nice busy schedule for this day camp this summer. Love the time on the ball and the cost was reasonable. Our only wish would be more girls her age, to mimic what she will experience during the season.
