Camp Philosophy

We believe that teaching basketball is more than setting up cones and blowing a whistle; we believe the "why" behind a philosophy or technique is just as important as the "how" and players deserve to know both! Our elite staff members will provide a clear, progressive and detailed approach, in an effort to promote the maximum development of each and every player. Our daily commitment to excellence will be achieved by creating a POSITIVE atmosphere that fosters success!

Before and After Care

Before and after camp care includes supervision and activities provided by Sonia Chase's staff. Before camp care is available Monday-Friday from 7am-9am for $100/week or $20/day. After camp care is available Monday-Friday from 4pm-6pm for $100/week or $20/day. You can sign-up for the full week of before/after care during registration. If you would only like to sign-up for select days, please register with Sonia Chase: 410-812-7670.

Camper Evaluation

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.

Registration Packet

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.

*Please note, this information is subject to change.
