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.

Derby Academy is located on Burditt Avenue in Hingham, Massachusetts, across from the harbor, and is accessible from both Route 3 and Route 3A. The Academy is well recognized as a leader in independent school education on the South Shore, located on a beautiful twenty-seven acre campus, adjacent to Broad Cove in Hingham, MA. The Derby Academy campus houses two gyms and campers will be broken up by age and ability. With over 12 baskets (some adjustable for younger campers) and 4 cross courts this gym is a great host for any camp or clinic. It is centrally located for the South Shore community.
*Please note that the Derby Academy gym is not air-conditioned but does have an HVAC system to increase air flow. Camper safety is always our number one priority. The gyms can get warm but we take every possible measure (HVAC system, open doors, and plenty of water breaks) to ensure campers are playing in a comfortable and safe environment.

We will be back!
August 7, 2018: I think it is a very well run camp and really great for a kid who really wants to develop his basketball skills and get better each year. I think overall it is a very positive experience and teaches kids to work hard to achieve their goals. GREAT JOB!! He loved it!! He will be back next year!!

August 6, 2018: I feel that Noah has grown in the short time at camp. He is a little more confident and truly enjoyed himself. He pulled a calf muscle half way through camp, but insisted on going even though he was in pain. Thank you so much for making this a fun and enjoyable experience for him!

Serious but fun
August 5, 2017: The best part about this camp is how the coaches keep it serious but fun at the same time.

The coaches made my son feel comfortable.
August 13, 2016: My son was very nervous first day. The coaches made him feel comfortable and part of everything. Ended up being a great experience.
— Amy P. Parent
My son was challenged by playing up a higher level.
August 12, 2016: Overall, my son had a great week. He was moved up to play with the older kids on the first day, because he is an experienced player and needed to be challenged more. This was fine, but as a parent, I would have preferred to have been consulted first. He liked his coaches and he liked that he was challenged by playing up a higher level.
My daughter came home with new skills every day.
August 12, 2016: My daughter was so excited to show us her new basketball skills she learned at camp. My daughter loved meeting other girls who love basketball too. She also talked about the "hot shot" drill and "knock out" game. She also enjoyed being with others who are also enthusiastic about basketball and especially liked her coach, Molly.
