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.

University Of Missouri Stadium

Home to Mizzou Basketball, Mizzou Arena produces one of the country's top home-court venues thanks to state-of-the art training facilities, locker rooms, which were renovated in 2014, and a full-length practice gym, which is open to Tiger student-athletes 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Once you enter Norm Stewart Court, it becomes easy to see why Missouri has won at a high clip at home since the building was opened in 2004. The Mizzou student section anchors one end of the court and 26 state-of-the-art suites separate two rowdy decks of fans. In total the building holds better than 15,000 fans and is known for being one of the toughest road venues for our visitors in the SEC.

Once basketball season is completed, Mizzou Arena is home to some of the top touring acts. No matter your entertainment tastes, Mizzou Arena is one of the liveliest venues in the Heartland.

    Worth it!

    August 27, 2018: The Coaches were exceptionally knowledgeable, motivating, AND engaging. My son has been to numerous camps, and this is the first time that coaches and assistant coaches actually went into the stands to introduce themselves. I was very impressed. My son was so impressed, he now wants to go to the University of Missouri. I too, was very impressed. I personally met Coach Martin, Assistant Coach Porter, and many others. They were all encouraging, motivated, and dedicated to their craft. Everyone that I saw loved what they do, and it showed. I traveled almost 3 hours each way for a four hour camp...and it was worth it. Great job.

    Great Camp

    August 27, 2018: The camp started and ended right on time. Stations were a good warm up for the kids before the games and coaches were able to correct mistakes and show players the right moves. Games were conducted in such a way that everyone had an equal time to play. Everyone was polite, respectful and kind! Special thanks to my son's coach for that day, Coach Porter! "He was fun to be around, and I've learned few great pointers from him" - my son's words at the end of the day! Thank you for putting on a great camp!

    Thanks! M-I-Z​

    I thought everyone involved did a great job. The coaches and players seemed to enjoy the day as well, which speaks well to their character. My son is 5 and he was nervous about doing some of the drills so the managers stayed with him and calmed him down. I appreciate their compassion. I also loved that it gave fathers ideas for certain drills to improve their son’s skills and meeting the coaches and players. Seeing behind the scenes (locker room, practice facility). Overall, a great day with my son. Thanks! M-I-Z

    Highly Recommend

    The overall experience was an enjoyable one for both my son and I. I appreciated that my son was able to interact with his favorite players and coaches during high quality basketball drills in a lighthearted environment. We will definitely recommend the camp to others and attend future camps ourselves as well.
