How Much Do Sports Camps Cost?

In every state there are sports to be played, and while some states will specialize in a particular sport or two there are always camps where people can go and learn how to be a better player in their favorite sport. Kids in general love to play sports and they never like to feel left out when it comes to playing, so we either have them coached or send them to a sports camp where they can learn from professionals, and sometimes professional athletes as well.

The price of sports camps will vary with the sport that is being played, the time of the camp, whether you will commute or stay overnight, and who will be there at the camp to coach or train. There are also specialized camps that will focus on a particular skill of a sports such as quarterback, linebacker, kicker, or batting, fielding etc….

You might find some camps as low as $99 dollars that are led by parents and will teach as a group the fairness of the sport, lasting as little as a day. While they build on team work more than anything there will be little to no one on one coaching. On average however the cost for a good overnight camp will run for about $700 and last between 3-5 days. Payment plans are often included so you can break of the payments in smaller instalments. These camps are often led by either former professional athletes, coaches of professional athletes, or even the athletes themselves. Don’t be fooled by prices or location however, as you might not always get what you are paying for in a high priced camp. Ask questions, and be sure to shop around before you choose which camp is best for you.

Discover places to play Basketball

The Driveway

For many of us, the driveway or backyard is the best place to practice Basketball outside of our real training schedules. We have it pretty lucky. We can make a fool of ourselves, hog the place and practice jump shots and dunks until our hearts are content.

Ideally, the surface should be flat. If dribbling isn’t your focus, this becomes even less of a necessity, as making shots or dunks is largely unaffected.

Of course, there is a price for this luxury – you need to purchase a hoop. The price can vary a lot, but there are some absolute steals to be had if you look around. In any case, if you’re serious about Basketball, consider putting that Christmas PS4 on hold and getting a hoop if you haven’t got one already.

Mounting brackets are another option. They’re usually cheaper, and if you have a place to mount them, they’re just as good. However, for dunking especially, keep in mind you need to set it at the correct height (10 foot), otherwise you’re just cheating yourself.

Local Basketball Courts

It makes a ton of difference to have one of these nearby. They’re often empty, so you can practice in peace, but there’s also opportunities to play ball with other people. They can be a great place to make new friends, and time literally flies when you’re having a good time.

Really, you should already know if you have one of these nearby. If you’re living in a populated area, check out, they have a pretty comprehensive list of courts you can check out on an interactive map, and you may even find yourself spoilt for choice.

Community Centers

If you have a local community center like YMCA around, there’s a good chance Basketball is one of their favorite activities. You’ll be accepted regardless of your age and ability – there really is something for everyone at these places. The Perfect Place to Play Sports

The Internet and technology have revolutionized the way people make friends and get involved in their communities. With the advent of social media and cell phones, getting involved and meeting new people is easier than ever. is another website that makes meeting others incredibly easy. On this website, there are all sorts of groups that one can join for a variety of reasons. There are groups for people with shared political views, groups for people who work in the same industry, and a variety of other things. One of the most prominent types of “MeetUp” groups, however, is sports groups. There are groups for virtually every form and variety of sport imaginable. For example, near Indianapolis, there is a group that meets that is specifically geared toward people who enjoy dancing. There are also more focused groups, such as groups solely for female ballet dancers or groups for men who enjoy tap dancing. There are specialty groups, too, such as groups for disabled people. Additionally there are competitive groups and groups that meet just to have fun. There are also groups for foreign sports, such as cricket. No matter what sport you enjoy playing, whether it is rugby or swimming or something completely different, is sure to have a group that is a perfect fit for you.

New in town? Start playing sports in your local area!

One of the many good things that the years of childhood can deliver is the opportunity to play sports. In almost any town or city in the United States, there are numerous options at every age and grade level for involvement in whatever sport one desires to participate. Each year, youth of all ages participate in an array of sports activities such as basketball, baseball, softball, football, soccer, track, and swimming. They also have the option of playing these sports in multiple settings, which include school teams, community teams, and elite level travel teams.

Upon entering adulthood, however, something rather strange seems to happen. The opportunities to play sports on an organized level seem to vanish. With the exception of athletes who go on to participate at the college or professional level, most adults have played their last organized game of their favorite sport by the time they graduate from high school. This is a shame, because the love of the game is still in their hearts, and often lies there dormant for the rest of their lives.

The good news is that sports participation doesn’t have to end with the onset of adulthood. No matter how old you are, whether age 18 or 88, there are opportunities for adults to participate in organized sports, at various competitive levels, often without having to look outside their own community. If you are an adult who is interested in continuing to play your favorite sport, the following list is designed to point you in the right direction. Here are some possible sources of opportunity:

1. Your Local School District: Many school districts have beautiful gyms, and elaborate sports field complexes. They also open them up to the community for general use, and often reserve space during evenings of the week for adult use of the facilities. In addition, most districts host adult education classes which often include competitive sports opportunities. Give your local school district office or adult education office a call to inquire about opportunities.

2. The YMCA: There are YMCA facilities all over the country, and many of them have an impressive menu of sports opportunities, such as adult basketball leagues. Go to your nearest YMCA, or check online, and obtain a schedule of activities.

3. Your Community Sports and Recreation Department: Most communities have their own recreation departments that offer a thriving list of adult sports league opportunities. Some of the most common options are basketball, soccer, and softball.

4. Do An Online Search For Adult Leagues In Your State or Region: No question, the internet has made it much easier for us all to track down helpful information. If you are interested in going beyond the community level, and playing in more highly competitive, structured leagues that have affiliates at the state and national organization level, there are, indeed options available to you. For example, adult amateur baseball leagues with age categories for players, including 50 and over, are available in most states. Two such leagues are the Men’s Senior Baseball League, and the Roy Hobbs Baseball League with affiliate teams all over the nation. You can check them, and other opportunities out, by simply doing an online search.

The important thing to remember is that if you truly want to continue to participate in organized sports as an adult, you can, no matter how old you are. Wherever you are; find your team, then get out there and have fun!
