The cost of the selection phase of camp includes: all coaching, equipment, facility fees, and housing. Food and transportation are not included and will be coordinated amongst invited athletes prior to the camp. The cost for the trip to World Championships includes everything except airfare. NOTE: We do not want financial issues to keep qualified athletes from applying. If you have financial concerns or constraints about the camp, please include an explanation in your application. Also, NCAA rules allow school programs to cover athlete expenses through the selection phase of camp. It is worth checking with your coach to see if this could be an option for you.
