We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Campers were well supervised during the entirety of camp.
June 23, 2017: Seeing my daughter's improvement and hearing the excitement and exhaustion in my daughter's voice from the beginning of the week to the end reaffirmed to us that the investment in camp was well worth it. She still has work to do, but we couldn't be more pleased.

The staff took great care of my daughter
I really appreciate Coach Dunlap and his staff for taking such great care of my daughter on her first overnight basketball camp. They really got to know Alexis and made her feel so comfortable. Her favorite part of the camp was of course the bball and getting to know the campers, coaches and assistant coaches. A well run camp; my daughter had an amazing time; she has even been practicing her dribbling drills that they showed her. She was sad to see Friday come.

Great Coach! Loved interacting with a college coach.
