Staff stay in the dormitories with all campers and participate in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.
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.
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.
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.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
He loved it
August 08, 2017: Run and facilitated by adults who have actually played/coached basketball at a high level - teaching the basics in a way that isn't redundant or boring. The first camp our son hasn't lamented about going to each day - he loved it.

Our children always find value in this camp.
July 25, 2016: Our children always find value in this basketball camp and look forward to it each year. They enjoy the counselors who truly engage with them. They liked the level of play/competition of the other kids there. We liked that there weren't just a bunch of high school players leading the camp. It was a great mix of all levels of teaching and all styles of teaching. Also love the bus transportation offered for the day campers.
— Darcy Q. Parent

My son got to play with kids from all over the world.
July 29, 2016: My son thought it was cool playing with kids from all over the world and practicing the athletic stance. It was a very pleasant experience, but I would have liked the games to be more of a tournament then just scrimmages.
