Due to University and NCAA Policies, we are not allowed to offer any transportation to and from camps. The airport closest to the Clemson campus is Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). The airport is approximately 25 minutes from SPU's campus.


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.

*All camps and clinics are open to any and all entrants, limited only by specified number, age, grade level and/or gender of its participants.
