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?
You only have to pay the non-refundable $30 deposit at registration to hold your camper’s spot in a camp session. After that you may log into your account at any time to make payments in any amount. On June 1st at 5pm, your remaining balance will be charged to the credit card on file. The total balance must be paid by June 1st or you may forfeit your camper’s spot. Email balance reminders are sent.

How can I apply for a UT Employee discount?
Children/dependents of UT-Austin employees are eligible for a 25% discount on camp tuition. After registering for the camp(s), fill out the  MBB Reduced Camp Admission Form and return to boysbkballcamps@athletics.utexas.edu or fax to 512-471-4160: 

Once we have received approval of your request from our compliance department, we will apply the discount to your account, or refund you the discount if you paid in full.

Do you keep a wait list?
Yes. Once a session sells out, the system will allow you to create an account and add your information to an online wait list. The nonrefundable wait list fee of $5 per camper, per session, is applied to your tuition total should you get into camp.

 

Back to Top


How does the wait list work?
The wait list is ordered chronologically. As soon as we receive notice of cancellation from a registered camper, we contact the first person on the wait list for that session. We move down the list until the vacancy is filled. Cancellations are difficult to predict; however, if your schedule is flexible, we recommend the wait list!

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 allow someone else to attend camp. The $30 deposit is non-refundable and cannot be credited toward future camps, but the rest of the cost can be refunded.

Back to Top


What is the refund procedure?
The $30 deposit is non-refundable for any reason at any time. The other tuition fees can be credited back to the original card used for payment within 5-7 business days.

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.

If I cannot attend camp, may I try to fill my spot with a friend or teammate?
No. The space cannot be switched out with another person. We maintain chronological wait lists for those trying to attend.

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 registration. Forms may be mailed to faxed to 512-471-4160 or mailed to:
The University of Texas
Boy's Basketball Camp
2139 San Jacinto Blvd.
Austin, TX 78712

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 at Denton Cooley Pavilion. 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.

What if my camper needs to leave camp for a short period of time for another obligation?
Please complete a Camper Absence Permission Form available at registration which will identify the day and time your camper needs to be absent. Our resident assistant will work with you to collect and return your camper.

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

This year, Longhorns Boys Basketball Camp is also excited to offer a concessions stand at all day camps! Concessions will NOT be available at team camp. Between station work and games, participants will have the opportunity to purchase additional drinks and snacks if they choose.

Per University policy, we cannot accept money on site. Instead, during registration, you will have the option to add money via credit card (in $5 increments) to your camper's "bank." Any purchases they make will be deducted from their bank. Concession money can be added online throughout the duration of the camp. At the end of the session, any money that is remaining in their bank will be refunded to the credit card on file. Again, cash, checks, or credit cards will not be accepted at the concession stand under any circumstances.

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 an itinerary?
