UMW Disclaimer

Due to the risks associated with lithium ion batteries causing fires when charging or using hover boards, the University of Mary Washington prohibits hover boards on campus.

Information Packet

A detailed camper information 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.

    Best experience for my daughter's first camp!

    July 18, 2016: The staff and coaches made my experience as a first-time camp parent sending a child to camp relaxed. They knew my daughter by name and encouraged her and the rest of the kids in any way they could. They also not only corrected her in fundamentals but also showed her the correct way to do it. Great experience and can't wait to see her grow in her skill even more next summer!

    The staff knew every girl by first name.

    July 18, 2016: My daughter liked the fact that the staff knew called her by her name. She has gone to camps before and they took no time knowing their name and would just called them "camper". The lip sync contest was fun. Her favorite part was the stations. The variety helped break up the day.
