Groups are made based on registration information....Grad Year and Skill Level.  Session 1 of camp will be skill stations and the coaching staff will be doing an evaluation of each group.  If there are campers who need to be moved because of group level being too high or too low they will be notified before the next skill based session.

Schedule (Times subject to change)

Our elite camp has been condensed from 3 days to 2 days.

    Learned so much!

    August 3, 2017: The dorms were organized and clean. The coaches were friendly and welcoming to parents and campers. The Communication between the parents, coaches, and even the people at USSC was amazing! It really helped parents feel at ease and able to focus solely on our daughters.  My daughter said that she learned so much and already sees a lot of improvement.  She is so excited to bring all her new skills back to her high school team!
