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 will be collected on the first day of camp. Campers must bring their health and release forms with them to check-in 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.

Learned new skills
July 27, 2017: Preston learned many new skills. He loved his coach and came home excited to return the next day even though he was exhausted. Definitely returning next year.— Dynnell R. Parent
Really liked camp
July 27, 2017: Kai really liked the camp a lot. It offered many hours of intense training each day. He was sore and tired in the evening but felt good. Maybe, had he focused more on a specific new skill or trick to learn, he could have used the time more efficiently. (parent's judgement)— Antonia F. Parent
July 26, 2017: He enjoyed working out with other campers at his level.— Kerilynne R. Parent
