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. The State of Massachusetts requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.
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
Overall - well done!
August 11, 2018: Kids had a great time at camp and always came home to share with us what they learned. Basketball skills were the highlight but core strength exercises and health knowledge tips added to the experience. This was the first time we had a quality basketball camp local to our area and it was great! The registration process and communication pathways were established and maintained. Coach Moses provided regular updates and provided clear communication. I do wish that the camp day was longer by 1.0 -1.5 hours longer. Excited to attend again next year!

August 11, 2018: My son was able to talk to coaches as a friend and was just himself. He has the urge to improve his skills and coach Moses and all his assistant coaches provided that free and disciplined environment for my son. Thanks for the opportunity.
