Yes we do. Our scholarships page has more details on applying for or funding a scholarship.

8.

Can I visit the camp to watch my child play?

Yes, we encourage parents to come and watch their child play. Please ask your child what team and what league they play in. We will give you a schedule at the beginning of the week so you will know exactly where your child is at all times.

9.

How do you divide the teams?

Campers are placed on teams according to age, size and ability. Our priority in forming teams is to have balanced competition. Therefore, we do not honor team assignment requests. Sometimes players are "traded" from the team assigned at registration to balance the competition.

Do the girls play with the boys?

Yes. We have found that the girls quickly lose their fear of playing with boys. At the varsity level, the boys will have their own league.

What do the campers receive?

Besides having a great week of basketball, each camper will receive a camp jersey and a formal evaluation of their performance which will include drills and recommendations and drills to work on in the future. Each day camper will also receive a participation certificate that includes a photo with their team and the Camp Directors.
