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

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.   

SCHOLARSHIPS

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.

    personalized one on one training

    August 07, 2017: My son is only 7, and so to be the highlight of the camp in the State Journal Register made his experience that much more exciting. The participants get more of a personalized one on one training.

    I can see the improvement and confidence after my son attended this camp.

    August 9, 2016: My son played on a basketball team at his school the last 2 years. I can see the improvement and confidence after he attended this camp. He talked about the coaches and other kids that he met at this camp (I think this was his favorite part of camp). He told me who the good players were and how well they could play and shoot. Also talked about how well the coaches could dunk a basketball. Thanks for all you do for kids.

    The best basketball camp we have ever sent any of our kids to!

    August 8, 2016: This was the best basketball camp we have ever sent any of our kids to! The coaches were great and our son learned so much. He loved how much individual attentional he got and how he felt like they evaluated him individually and helped him in the exact way he needed. Wonderful experience!
