Lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch or lunch money. A concession stand will be open for lunch, snack and drink purchases. $10 per day covers lunch and two snacks.

Camper Evaluation

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. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following.


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.

Registration Packet

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.

*Please note, this information is subject to change.

    It has been an absolute pleasure working with Coach Shep and his team!

    My son has been attending the Nike camp at Homewood High School for the past five (5) years. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Coach Shep and his team! It's a great camp ... well run with high quality and skilled coaches. My son has learned a lot over the years of attending and is so sad that he has now aged out! He LOVED his coach this year who was super encouraging and the Female Coach over his division (NBA) could not have been better or more encouraging, while at the same time challenging to push further. Super big thanks to Nike for seeing the need in the Birmingham area ... to Homewood High School for allowing the community access to their facilities ... and to Coach Shep for being an awesome leader, mentor and friend to my son!

    My boys loved, loved this camp!!! I am an instructor for majorettes and am very picky about camps that my kids go to because I never want them to just be babysat! But this camp was extremely organized and well ran and plenty of staff and my kids will be signing up for another one that is in Homewood asap.

    Coach Lee Miller called me with an update on my son

    Coach Lee Miller even called me with an update on my son. His enthusiasm and interest in my son helped spark a new desire for basketball within him. The following week, Coach Maddux really helped them move in positive directions. My son has been to several basketball camps and I would highly recommend this camp to anyone.
