If you have a group of eight or more campers registering for the same camp, each camper is eligible for a discount. Please have someone contact the US Sports Camps office at 1-800-645-3226 with the names of each camper in the group and we will create a unique discount code for your group.

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.

Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender.

    Great environment

    August 3, 2019: Noelle enjoyed the camp. She felt the coaches were very helpful in teaching her proper techniques on her serve. I would definitely say it was a very positive experience.

    Thank you to all!!

    August 2, 2019: Madeline enjoyed all the games, drills and staff. She especially found Becky and Steph exceptionally skilled at coaching, as well as "really fun." Madeline also enjoyed the addition of the dress-up days and other camp-like activities like relay races and hungry hippos etc. All around, a fantastic week and Madeline already is talking about coming back next year.

    Great experience

    August 2, 2019: Lindsay had a great time at camp even though she twisted her ankle on day 3. The first day she was put in a lower age group (12’s) due to her age group (13’s) being overcrowded. This was not a good fit ability-wise and did not provide a challenging environment for her. I spoke to Danielle (director) who switched both her and her friend which made a huge difference in her experience. Once situated, Lindsay really loved the coaches in the 13’s group who did lots of fun drills and games. Also, the athletic trainer was very helpful when Lindsay got hurt. She sat with her, kept her calm and taped her ankle. Lindsay’s coaches tried to accommodate her the last day so she could still participate. They were aware of her pain and worked around it. All in all, we would both agree that the Nike Camp was a great experience!

    August 3, 2018: The coaches pushed my daughter to improve her skills while pushing other players around her. My daughter says that while attending.

    If your really serious about volleyball or learning how to play volleyball and all techniques, this is the volleyball camp to go to.
