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

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. 

SCHOLARSHIPS

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.

GROUP DISCOUNTS

If five or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $20 discount. If 10 or more campers register together, each camper is eligible for a $40 discount. Teams can register online or via mail/fax.

  • To register your team online: Please have a team contact reach out directly to the USSC office at 1-800-645-3226 to receive a discount code to identify your group. Campers may then register individually through the website at their convenience and apply the coupon code during check-out.
  • To register your team via mail/fax: Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application. All applications must be received at the same time via mail or fax. If all members of your group pay with a Visa or MasterCard, feel free to fax your applications to 415-479-6061 to expedite processing.

    Thanks to Matt, staff and TCNJ

    July 13, 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!

    He definitely will return next year

    July 13, 2017: This was my son's first time attending this overnight camp and he loved it. He learned a lot, loved the environment and all the coaches. He felt challenged and feels his skills improved. He definitely will return next year!
