HOW DO I REGISTER MY CHILD FOR CAMP?
There are three ways to register for camp:
1) Via our website, www.basketballcity.com, click on the sign-up button. Complete the application with the camper’s personal information and fill in your credit card information.
2) By phone – call (212) 233-5050 and speak with Michael Collins.
3) Pay online, by a check, money order, or cash – in person or by mail (fill out the application along with the payment).
CAN I REQUEST MY CHILD BE PLACED WITH HIS FRIEND?
No. A lot of planning and work goes into making all the teams equal, which helps the staff teach the game better. Requesting that a camper be paired with another camper would effect the balance of the camp.
DOES MY CHILD NEED A MEDICAL FORM?
Each camper MUST submit a completed medical form and send to Basketball City prior to camp or bring it on the first day of camp in order to participate. ALL CHILDREN MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED TO ATTEND CAMP. Please note that this form can be the one given to you by Basketball City or a similar medical form completed by your child’s physician.
