Now in its 21st year, A Step Ahead Inc. (ASA Hoops) has become a year-round operation offering clinics, classes, camps and AAU. In 2017, over 2,500 participants have entered our programs. This up-coming year will be ASA's biggest yet, with over 40 camps scheduled and the expansion of their AAU program. ASA Hoops will be one of the biggest basketball operations in New England. Participants, boys and girls, range in age from 7-18 and have come from communities throughout New England and across the globe.

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. Boys and girls will be separated during the week. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure: Immediately following 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.

The instructors were amazing
July 29, 2017: The instructors were amazing, and were very concerned with his well-being and happiness. They went out of their way to give him the positive attention he needed, which helped him be successful the rest of the camp week! We are so grateful for the kindness we were shown.

The counselors/coaches were incredibly motivating.
The counselors/coaches were incredibly motivating...my son would practice outside until dark after a full day of camp. We will definitely sign up again.
I had so much fun.
This was my first basketball camp and I was nervous about going. But I'm so glad that I went because I had so much fun. I can tell I'm better at basketball too.
Her shot has greatly improved.
I sent my child to camp and was happy to see her improve her skills on the basketball court. Her shot has greatly improved since attending camp.
