FAQs

WHAT IS LONE STAR HOOPS CAMP?
A Lone Star Hoops Camp consists of technical and fundamental basketball instruction, emphasizing a fast-paced, intense, “circuit-training” effect for boys and girls.  It is perfectly suited for all shapes, sizes and skill levels from the beginner to the aspiring “star of the court”, and offers top instruction along with high-quality perks found in much more expensive day camps.  This is not a “baby-sitting” service!  Campers will compete everyday in a nurturing atmosphere that offers instruction and play in small groups based on experience, ability, age and size.  It is our sincere intention to provide something special for every camper.

WHAT DAYS?  WHAT TIMES?
Camps run under a uniform Monday-Thursday, 8:30 am-4:30 pm format.  All camps include over 32 hours of direction…or approximately the same amount of practice time a typical middle-schooler will have in a month at school or a full season in youth-league play.  The camp duration is a great incentive!  Lone Star Camps begin in early June and the last camp typically concludes in the 1st week of August. See our locations and schedule.

WHO FOR?
Camps are for all boys and girls as young as those currently 7 years of age through those currently in 8th grade.  Campers are grouped into “conferences” of approximately 20, including a commisioner and at least one assistant supervising each of these divisions.   We limit involvement to a maximum of 10-to-1 camper-to-coach ratio.  Registration is limited and camps ALWAYS FILL UP AHEAD OF TIME.

WHAT IS OFFERED TO CAMPERS?
All campers will receive a commemorative multi-colored camp tee-shirt, a certificate of participation, video instruction and will compete for over 200 awards in everything from ball-handling to shooting, effort to improvement, attitude to enthusiasm!  There is something for everyone and awards are given in each conference.  Oh yes, and let’s not forget…every camper receives a full-size, red-white-and-blue indoor/outdoor official Lone Star Hoops BASKETBALL!

WHAT ABOUT LUNCH AND SNACKS?
LSH will furnish a concession stand where campers may purchase drinks and snacks throughout the week at minimal costs.  They may also choose to purchase lunch or “brown bag” it.   We are fortunate to have pizza that will be furnished throughout the summer at most of our camps.  For security purposes, we have a “camp bank” supervised by an adult educator.  Kids can make deposits and withdrawals throughout the week at their convenience

WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
Campers should come dressed in shorts, tees and appropriate footwear, ready for action upon arrival.  Please leave all hats and jewelry at home.  Cameras and Videos are welcome.  We have arrangements for early drop-off and late pick-up each day, provided we are notified ahead of time.  There is always supervision by 8 am and as late as 5 pm daily. There will be an awards presentation at approximately 4 pm on the last day of the camp.

HOW MUCH?
All Austin-area camps are $195 per week, if paid by June 1.  Prices increase after the that early registration date. All camps located outside of Austin will vary in cost, based on facility and insurance.  Please check the schedule for exact cost.  Two or more siblings enrolled in the same camp may deduct $15 per camper (up to a maximum of 4 sibling discounts).  The sibling discount does not apply to all camps (Please email for information regarding this discount). Check specific camps for discount offers around the state. Many camps tend to be completely filled before June. Once the online registration form is completed, campers are guaranteed a space in the camp.
