Mega Sports Camp is for kids entering 1-6th grade and features soccer, basketball, flag football, octaball & cheer-leading. Each child chooses one sport focus for the week but "test drives" other sports daily like Taekwondo, Ladderball, & Octaball. Experienced coaches ensure kids will improve skills, even among varied competition levels. Rally-times gather us for attitude-lessons and huddle times encourage and hydrate the kids. $20 covers T-shirt & Powerade with daily awards for attitude, hustle, and best player. Quality sports camps are pricy and require travel. We aim to build Mega Sports Camp into a top, affordable, annual option in Charlotte.

Kids love sports and parents are motivated to "get them outside!” MegaSports Camp mobilizes skilled Coaches – to elevate both game and attitude over Summer.

Q & A:

Why is there a cost?

We want to offer a high quality camp, charged with attitude-builders. Many half-day or full sports camps cost into the hundreds, but we're just asking for $20 per kid for T-shirt, supplies, & hydration. We’re in it to give not to get. If $20 is not possible just say, “My kid was recruited & is on full scholarship!”

Is this just a church camp where they throw balls around?

Mega Sports Camp is just that - a sports camp - led by energetic coaches with many decades combined experience! We are passionate for sports & passionate to prepare kids for life. Faith is woven in because that has changed our lives--but never with pressure tactics.

How do you separate groups?

We divide kids first by sport and then by age. Ideally, there is a ‘starter’ group (1-3) and ‘upper’ group (4-6) in each sport. Huddle Coaches, will be with them through the day.

We don't attend Church . . . Is that ok?

Of course. There is no pre-requisite for attending Mega Sports Camp. No church affiliation is needed to elevate your kids’ game with a winning attitude.

My child isn't able to attend every day. Can they still come?

Yes, but please alert us at registration so coaches can plan.
