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.

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.

*Please note, this information is subject to change.

    My son always comes away a better player.

    July 23, 2017: My son's first overnight camp experience was last year with this same camp and he loved it. As a parent, I was grateful that he felt so safe and supported to be away for so long the first time. This year, we also added on the shooting camp and again he loved all of it. The staff are friendly AND good at what they do. My son always comes away a better player, and loving the game even more than before. He definitely wants to come back next year, and I'll be sending him!

    Everyone was super nice and encouraging!

    July 01, 2017: The positive environment! Everyone was super nice and encouraging! We (parents and campers) were greeted by friendly staff. My son gained much more than advancing his skills. The atmosphere of camp helped boost his confidence all around. He seemed to have bonded with his coach and other staff members.

    This camp is the best one I've been to

    Compared to other camps I’ve been to, this one was the best so far. And I liked the camp this year even better than last year.

    My son had a wonderful time

    My son was the youngest camper and the smallest camper so I worried about his being accepted. But with the help of the director and staff, he was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time. Thank you.
