Ages 12 - 17 • The Sports Center
The Sports Center's Basketball Camp allows players to fine-tune all aspects of their game, equipping them with the tools needed to compete at their best level. With a focus on conditioning, increased agility, proper technique and overall court awareness, Basketball Camp prepares players to be at the top of their game for season play. A maximum of 20 campers per week ensures individual attention and player success. Athletes must have 3 years of prior playing experience. Campers must turn 12 by 6/1/17.
Camp Time: 8:45am-4:00pm
Basketball Camp is dedicated to improving each player's core fundamentals; shooting, passing, ball handling, rebounding, one-on-one moves and defense skills. While building on the fundamentals, players learn the value of man-to-man defense, team defense, transition game, court awareness, post moves, footwork, hustle and sportsmanship. Players work each day to improve their agility, speed and flexibility.
Basketball Camp is based at the Sports Center health club on Pier 60 at Chelsea Piers. The Sports Center features three hardwood basketball courts, extensive cardiovascular and strength training areas, a ¼-mile indoor running track and a banked competitive running track. Acceleration and speed training also takes place on the plyometric equipment.
In addition to their daily activities, campers have access to various facilities throughout the Piers during recreational periods, including bowling, golf, ice skating, soccer and more.
Basketball counselors and coaches are experienced in inspiring teens to challenge themselves and build camaraderie with fellow campers. Skills Academy Coach Sal Maisano is a talented skills coach who has worked for an NBA scout and coached basketball players on a collegiate and professional level.

Summer Camp customers can register quickly and easily online for all camps, transportation and after-care options through our online registration system. This system allows you to instantly enroll your child and manage your camp account throughout the summer.
If you did not create an account in 2016, please read our Parent Handbook for detailed instructions on how to set up your account. If you already have an account, simply log in to the “Parent Dashboard” and select the camps and weeks of your choice. Note that we do not accept registrations over the phone. Please register online or fax/mail the application. If faxing, you must call to confirm receipt.
Please leave all toys and non-camp related personal items at home. This includes handheld games, jewelry, cell phones and iPods. Chelsea Piers is not responsible for lost or stolen property.
A non-refundable $175 per week deposit is required at the time of registration. The balance of tuition must be paid in full by May 10, 2017. All campers who register after May 10, 2017 must pay the entire tuition at the time of registration. Checks will not be accepted as a form of payment after June 1, 2017, nor will they be accepted for walk-ups or for those enrolling in camp the same day. Credit cards or cash will be accepted forms of payment. If you are extending camp weeks for your child on or after May 10, the credit card on file will be charged.
Transportation can only be added or edited up to the Tuesday prior to camp session, and Aftercare up until the Thursday prior to the camp session. Please note that if you chose transportation you will be emailed or called with your pick-up time the Friday before your child starts camp.
Campers who remain at Chelsea Piers after 4:30pm will be placed in our Aftercare Program. This program allows parents the chance to complete their workday and affords campers a chance to unwind and relax after a long day. Campers may be picked up in the Field House between 4:30pm - 6:00pm. Aftercare will be billed according to use and no pre-payment is required at the time of registration.
Cancellations and Making Changes
If you paid-in-full and would like to cancel camp before May 10, 2017, all of your money will be returned to you except the $175 per week cancellation fee. After this date, no refunds will be granted for absences, transportation delays, or withdrawals for any other reason. Refunds will not be granted in the event that an act of war (declared or otherwise), strike/work stoppage, natural disaster or reasons beyond the control of Chelsea Piers, disrupts or forces the cancellation of camp.
There is a $45 change fee for each change made before May 19, 2017 to the original application. On or after May 19, 2017, there is a $45 change fee plus the actual cost of camp. If there are any changes regarding transportation, your child's attendance at camp or early pick-up, please contact us via one of the following methods.
Walk-up Fee and Other Fees
All registrations received after 4:00pm on the Thursday prior to the start of desired week of camp incur a $50 walk-up fee.
Aftercare is available in the Field House for an additional fee of $40 per day or $150 per week from 4:30pm - 6:00pm. Parents will be charged a $25 late fee every half hour for picking up their children after 6:00pm.
