ULTIMATE CHAMPIONS PHILOSOPHY

In order to be successful there has to be a strong foundation. If a builder is building a house, he must have a strong foundation in order for the house to stand properly over time. Well, the same is for basketball. There must be a strong foundation in fundamentals for continuous individual improvement.  In addition to an emphasis on skill development, camp will also aim to improve each players athleticism and explosiveness.

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.

    We would definitely send him back to another week of camp in the future

    April 09, 2018: My son felt that his skills greatly improved and that this was the first real training he got in basketball. He felt it was a really great work out too. And this inspired to do more basketball. He felt the feedback he got was very accurate and helpful also. We would definitely send him back to another week of camp in the future.

    My 9 year old son had a great time and gained confidence and skills

    April 09, 2018: My 9 year old son had a great time and gained confidence and skills. He enjoyed all parts of the camp--the skills training, the talks about the game and the scrimmages. We both really appreciated the written feedback at the end of camp--it gave him clear goals to work on!

    Perfect balance.

    April 09, 2018: Our son was well supported and included in everything even though he was younger and less developed than most if not all other campers. He was also challenged and not coddled, which was the perfect balance.

    High level of competition.

    August 20, 2016: What I enjoyed most during camp was the friendships made everyday and the high level of competition. Playing full court games helped me improve my passing and ball movement.
