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.

My daughter loved it
July 27, 2016: I found the camp to be perfect with the level of intensity. Everyone clearly loved basketball, but playing music and watching the assistant coaches dance or laugh made it seem also fun and enjoyable to be out there playing the camp.
— Phoebe K. Parent
Great, quality camp
July 28, 2016: The experience for my little lady was amazing. She had many friends attending and really learned a lot. The music and dancing was provided a fun working, learning atmosphere for the campers. Having a girls coaching staff/ players was also a plus for the other girls to see. Thanks to Coach Bamford and her staff for conducting a quality camp.
