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. 


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.

    ​Camp was well organized

    July 10, 2017: Camp was well organized and staff did a great job keeping my son safe (peanut/tree nut allergy). He enjoyed staying in the dorms, and meeting new people. Learned a lot of new skills and seems to be putting them to good use.
