How soon will I receive confirmation of my session?
Once online registration is complete, campers receive an e-mail confirmation immediately! You receive confirmation e-mails and statements to the e-mail address used during the registration process, as well as any future news or updates regarding camp sessions, so we ask that you use an e-mail that is checked frequently.

Do I have to pay in full at registration or do you offer payment plans?
When you reach the checkout page during registration, there are two payment options available. If individual team members are responsible for their own payments, enter your credit card information when you check out. If your team is paying as a whole, you can defer payment and our staff will reach out to your coach/chaperone to obtain fees. The total balance must be paid by June 1st or you may forfeit your camper’s spot. Email balance reminders are sent.

What should I do if I find out I cannot attend my camp session?

Please notify the camp immediately via email if you are unable to attend so that we may adjust your team's roster, make necessary changes to housing, and process your refund (if applicable).

What is the refund procedure?
All camp fees can be credited back to the original card used for payment within 5-7 business days once our camp is notified that your camper cannot attend. 

There are no refunds or credits of any portion of the camp fee after the first day of camp for reasons other than documented medical conditions. There are no refunds for a “no show” or if a camper leaves early due to homesickness.

Team coaches/chaperones will receive a refund of their $30 registration fee within 5-7 business days after the end of camp, provided their team participated in all scheduled meetings and games.

What about medications?

Our licensed athletics trainer can help with dispensing prescription and OTC medications IF we have the Consent to Dispense form on file. To dispense prescription medications, the medication must be given to the camp athletics trainer at check-in in a zip-loc bag with medication, dosage directions, dosage amounts and times, and parent contact information. The trainer will arrange times to help administer to the camper. If the camper is age appropriate, and responsible enough to self-administer, they may keep their medications with submission of the proper form.

Does my camper need a physical?
All campers are required to have written physician clearance proclaiming them fit for camp participation. The Pre-Activity Clearance Form may be found in the medical forms packet at http://longhornbasketballcamp.activesb.net/Medical_Forms.htm. If your physician has documented the health information on another form (school physical), a copy of this form will suffice if dated within 12 months of the first day of camp.

May I bring the forms to camp?
No, we must have all medical forms on file prior to check-in. Forms may be mailed to faxed to 512-471-4160 or mailed to:
The University of Texas
Boy's Basketball Camp

Please do not email the forms as they contain sensitive information.

What if a camper has a pre-existing injury?
Camp is a physically demanding and challenging week and campers should be in good physical condition prior to arrival. Please notify the Director prior to check-in if the injury has happened after the medical forms have been submitted. It is very important that we know any and all medical conditions a camper may have, or special situations that parents feel we should know about.

Can parents watch camp sessions?
Yes. Parents are welcome to observe any camp session, but please understand that seating is limited. No sessions, instruction or scrimmages may be videotaped for personal use or for redistribution purposes. Still photos are permissible.

What if I get a parking ticket on campus?
Longhorns Basketball camp is not responsible for parking citations issued by the University or City of Austin and, per University policy, cannot “fix” or pay them. We strongly recommend paying to park in one of the campus garages as parking on campus is primarily by permit only. Please observe all posted parking signs. Check the University Parking Maps for parking options and guidelines.

May my camper bring snacks?
Yes. You are welcome to bring snacks and drinks to camp. Water and gatorade will be available at all gyms.

Anything campers cannot bring?
It is strongly recommended that campers do not bring anything of value such as laptops, gaming systems, excessive amounts of cash. Longhorns Boys Basketball Camps are not responsible for replacing any lost or stolen items.

Contraband items that have no place at camp and will get your camper sent home immediately: matches, lighters, knives, firearms, alcoholic beverages, razor blades, tobacco products, illegal drugs, candles, fireworks, incense, etc.

May I request that my son play on the same team as a friend or roommate?
No. Our camp director feels strongly that best the way for your camper to become a better basketball player is to rely on his own strengths. Campers are placed on a team according to age and skill. Team balancing takes place after the first day of camp.

Where may I find the game schedule?
Game schedules will be emailed to coaches/chaperones and available at check in on June 29, 2018.
