A confirmation email from USSC Notification will be sent 24-48 hours after submitting your registration. Please make sure to check your spam/junk inbox. If you do not receive a confirmation email, you can contact us at [email protected] for assistance.
4 What is the cancellation policy?
If you need to cancel for any reason up until 24 hours prior to camp check-in, you will receive a camp credit voucher for tuition fees paid that is good through the following year for any sport and is transferable to any immediate family member. Participants who DO NOT attend their registered session (no-shows for any reason) or who do not contact USSC to cancel at least 24 hours prior to camp check-in will not receive a voucher or refund. Cash refunds are given only if Cancellation Protection was purchased at the time of registration and the cancellation is made before your balance due date (see terms below).
If USSC cancels your child's camp due to COVID-related facility closures, government mandates or other circumstances, you will automatically be issued a credit voucher for your tuition fees paid which can be applied to any US Sports Camp through the following year and used by any immediate family member.
These policies are in place to account for camp fees associated with each registration that are made in advance of the program. Camper waives any and all damages that may otherwise arise out of any camp cancellation and agrees to accept as liquidated damages said registration fees.
5 What is Cancellation Protection?
US Sports Camps offers our camp families Cancellation Protection for $100 per session, due at the time of registration. Cancellation Protection entitles you to a full refund of your camp tuition fees paid to date if you cancel for any reason before your final payment date (the first day of the month prior to the month of your camp start date. i.e. final pay date is May 1st if your camp date begins in the month of June). Please note: $100 Cancellation Protection and the Registration Fee are non-refundable.
With Cancellation Protection, if you cancel after your final payment due date and at least 24 hours prior to camp check-in, you will receive a VOUCHER for all tuition fees paid, valid through the following calendar year. Participants who DO NOT attend their registered session (no-shows for any reason) or who do not contact US Sports Camps to cancel at least 24 hours prior to camp check-in will not receive a voucher or refund. Your VOUCHER is transferable to an immediate family member and may be used in the sport in which you initially registered.

Vouchers have to be redeemed over the phone! In order to apply your voucher to your new registration purchase, please give us a call at 1-800-645-3226, and we will be happy to assist you with your registration using the voucher.
7 What programs do you offer?
All sessions are open to players of all abilities. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
10 & Under: This program provides a positive introduction to tennis fundamentals and low key match play situations for younger campers. Balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. Courts are smaller and easier to cover so that kids can focus on developing tactical and technical skills—with more success and less frustration.
All Skills Program: The All Skills program is designed for tennis players of any skill level and background. Campers will learn fundamentals and improve upon their game.
Tournament Training Program: The Tournament Training Program is geared towards tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness.
High School Program: The High School Program is provided for any and all players currently on their high school team and wanting to move up the ladder or those planning on making the high school team.
8 If I want to go to camp for two or more consecutive weeks can I stay at camp over the weekend(s)? What do we do during the weekend?
Some of our Nike Tennis Camps offer a weekend stayover in between camp sessions. Many of our campers stay for multiple weeks to maximize learning and fun. There is an additional $300 charge for overnight campers who stay for the weekends between consecutive camp sessions. This fee covers room and board charges. Campers staying for weekends between sessions are well supervised and have the option to participate in tennis and off-court activities.
9 Do you offer scholarships?
Unfortunately, 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.
