USA Basketball Gold Camps are advanced-level basketball camps that feature skill instruction led by 10-time USA Basketball gold medal winning coach Don Showalter, as well as other USA Basketball licensed coaches.
The focus of USA Basketball Gold Camps, which debuted in 2019, is on fundamental skill development through station work, group drills and competition, and the camps are designed for athletes that demonstrate skills in line with the advanced level of the USA Basketball Player Development Model.
Participants train and receive coaching to improve their skill set, game play and character on and off the court. USA Basketball Gold Camps are a place for young basketball players to get better by competing with and against top talent from across the country. USA Basketball representatives will attend camps to evaluate the development level of all participants.
Athletes interested in registering for a USA Basketball Gold Camp must submit an application, and the cost of camp for those accepted is $185. The registration price includes one meal and Nike/USA Basketball jersey, shorts and backpack. Participants are responsible for their own basketball shoes, transportation and lodging.
USA Basketball staff will review all submitted applications and reply with formal acceptance or denial for each submission. Applications will be approved on a rolling basis.
