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.

Loved the Individual Attention and Drills!
August 10, 2018: My son's coach was a former professional player overseas and coached at the Trussville, AL camp. He was phenomenal according to my son (who does not generally dole out compliments). My son LOVED this camp and is already talking about returning next year! He is sad I didn't discover it years ago because he is 14 and will age out next year. He loved the individual attention and the drills. I appreciated the awards ceremony in front of the parents that recognized not only the super stars but the kids who were really trying hard but might not be as good. Whether a serious player or someone just interested in the sport, I felt like there was something for everyone.

Fundamentals Were Heavily Focused on!
August 9, 2018: Fundamentals were heavily focused on at this camp and coaches identified the weaknesses of each camper for them to intensify their work in that area. Competitions were nice to allow child to see where they were compared to other kids. My child really enjoyed this, thank you.

Huge Thanks for All our Efforts!
July 30, 2018: PJ enjoyed being a part of this small camp, it gave more 1-on-1 coach and athlete opportunity. He absorbed so much with the positive teaching with firm foundations. He mentioned how knowledgeable, encouraging, and approachable the Nike coaches are. He didn't feel intimidated, but included and involved in making his experience count. He had a real difficult season with a very negative-minded coach and major loss record of 1-11, which stifled his attitude about ever playing again. This Nike camp and your coaching staff have drawn him back to this great sport. Huge thanks for all your efforts.
