US Sports Camps stand out above all the rest. As an operator of Nike Sports camps, they run over 900 camps in 16 different sports, throughout the country with 9 exceptional camps right in our own backyard, at beautiful Curry College. Boys and Girls camps include; Soccer, Basketball, Football, Baseball, Girls Lacrosse, Boys Lacrosse, Tennis, Volleyball and Softball. Performance is their #1 goal, but they aim to do so with a mission that connects passionate coaches to determined young athletes in a positive and safe environment.
Each camp seeks to provide young athletes with confidence and competence in their individual sport, enabling them to move from JV to Varsity level, or from the high school team to the college team. CEO, Charlie Hoeveler explains, “We don’t want to run just ‘fun little camps.’ We want kids to have fun in the context of skill development. They’re going to have fun being on a college campus and meeting other kids. At the end of the week, if the kids only have fun, and haven’t been pushed and haven’t gone through the process of improving, then I don’t think we’ve done our job.”
How do the camps handle athletes of all levels and ages?
While camps are open to campers of all skill levels, each session of camp will start with a skills evaluation. Campers are divided in to small groups according to their age and skill level. This allows players from beginners to advanced to receive training that is perfectly suited for the needs and wants. Beginners will work on the fundamentals of their sport to create the perfect foundation to build upon after camp. Advanced players will receive high level training curtailed to their skill level and many camps involve conditioning and strength training for their high level players.
Teachers & Coaches:
Our camp directors include a team of highly qualified Collegiate and Club Level coaches who are ready to help players train, compete, and improve this summer. Their coaching staff will include other coaches from the Collegiate and Club Level along with Collegiate Level players from Curry College and other colleges and universities in the area. We keep are coach to camper ratio low to allow for specialized training, plenty of reps, and improvement each and every day of camp. Coach to camper ratios can be found on each camp page.
2019 marks the 45th season of US Sports Camps. When Charlie Hoeveler began US Sports Camps back in 1975, he was already a lifelong tennis player who now holds 50 USTA National titles. US Sports Camps formed from Charlie’s involvement with tennis legend Billie Jean King and her associates who created TennisAmerica (TA), a multi-site network of camps featuring well known “celebrity” coaches. in 1975, Billie Jean and her associates hired Charlie to correct the flaws and reinvent the youth camp experience. With Charlie at the helm, he reinvented the definition of sports camps, making US Sports Camps what it is today with over 90,000 campers a year
