If you have a roommate request, and have not already given it to us, please do so as soon as possible. Roommate requests are not guaranteed, if you don't have a roommate request, you will be placed in a room with someone near your age. It will be a great opportunity to meet someone new!

The staff live in the dormitories with the campers and participate in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.


On the first day of camp, all day campers should arrive dressed and ready to play. Drop off and pick up locations will be given out at registration.

Daily Schedule: SUN 2pm-5pm, MON-TUES 9am-5pm, WED 9am-12pm


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.


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.

    Thanks to Matt, staff and TCNJ

    July 14, 2017: My stepson had never been to an overnight camp and is usually a pretty quiet kid. The last day of camp, he called me at work to tell me all about it. It was the most excitement he'd shown about anything in awhile and I couldn't have been more pleased. He had a pack of new friends before the end of the first night and hasn't had one negative thing to say. Also, I really appreciated the "report card" he brought home, so he knows what to work on in the coming months. That phone call alone made the whole camp worth every cent and there's no doubt he'll be back next year. Thanks to Matt, staff and TCNJ!
