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 have a child flying to camp, private arrangements for campers arriving at the Hartford Bradley Airport may be made by visiting:
http://www.bradleyairport.com/Transportation.aspx. If campers are flying into LaGuardia Airport, please visit their website: http://www.panynj.gov/airports/laguardia.html. 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. The State of Connecticut requires a copy of camp participants’ most recent physical and record of immunizations, shots, etc., in addition to the US Sports Camps health and release form.


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.

Sacred Heart Gym

Campers will utilize SHU's William H. Pitt Center and the Notre Dame Catholic High School gym, conveniently located next to SHU. Campers will spend the majority of instruction in the Pitt Center and will use the high school gym when needed. The Pitt Center and Notre Dame Catholic High School gyms are both air-conditioned.

The $17.5 million Pitt Center, which opened in August 1997, serves as the home court for both men’s and women’s basketball and volleyball programs, as well as our fencing and wrestling programs. The three-level, 141,000 square-foot complex features a four-court layout and seats over 2,000 people for basketball.

The lower level of the Pitt Center received a major facelift in the summer of 2007. The 5,000-plus square-foot weight room now reflects a top level Division I weight room with the addition of state of the art weight training equipment, new Mondo rubberized flooring, lighting and a paint job that truly reflects the spirit of Pioneer Athletics. Other changes made were office renovations for men’s & women’s basketball and football, added locker room space and a total refurbishing of the aerobics room wood floor. The lower level also houses locker rooms for our athletic teams and members, the Pioneer Wrestling Room, Equipment Room and Athletic Training offices. The main level of the center houses the Athletic Communications suite and a four-court field house with indoor track and retractable batting cage. A floating wood floor is used for basketball and volleyball competitions. 4,500 square feet of clinical space is dedicated to the Sacred Heart University Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Center. Contained in this space are examination rooms, faculty offices, and therapy labs, as well as a physical therapy clinic.

    A memoriable experience that I will NEVER forget.

    Coming to the sacred heart Nike basketball camp was a memorable experience that I will NEVER forget. I have no complaints or regrets. The campers had the best of both worlds with the skills stations and the games. At the end of the session we have progressed to better players, had lots of fun, and made a ton of friends.

    My daughter most enjoyed being with her team, learning, laughing, and playing basketball with likeminded children.

    Team bonding came very naturally which made for a friendly welcoming environment. The camp directors are very good with the girls. It seems a natural talent to teach their love and knowledge of the game to the younger girls. My daughter most enjoyed being with her team, learning, laughing, and playing basketball with likeminded children. This camp is unique in that the girl are put into teams, taught skills, and are encouraged to apply those skills in games throughout the week.

    I am looking forward to participating next summer!

    I enjoyed the camp very much. I recommend this to all my friends. I liked how we were split up into teams and had stations in the morning and games in the afternoon. I also liked how we got a big break for lunch, that we weren't rushed to eat so we could get back. I enjoyed it very much, and I am looking forward to participating next summer!
