Frequently Asked Questions

Is Camps and Clinics the same as Junior Jazz?
They are not the same. Utah Jazz Camps and Clinics is an instructional program led by high-level coaches who help kids develop their basketball skills. Camps and Clinics participants will also have the unique opportunity to interact with Utah Jazz personalities.

Will a Utah Jazz player be at every camp/clinic?
We try to find opportunities to have former and current players—or other team-related individuals or groups—involved as much as possible, but there is no guarantee that this will take place at every camp.

What’s included with my camp/clinic?
Each player will receive a Jazz/Adidas reversible jersey, as well as Adidas socks, a basketball, and ticket credit for an upcoming Utah Jazz game. In addition, all camps over four hours include a pair of Adidas D.O.N. Issue #1 shoes. If a clinic is less than four hours, the shoes are not included.

Are the Camps and Clinics coaches part of the regular Utah Jazz staff?
All the coaches for the Camps and Clinics program have either played professionally and/or collegiately, or they have significant experience coaching high school and/or AAU basketball. Click here for a list of Camps and Clinics coaches. All coaches have gone through a thorough background check. Utah Jazz coaches will not work as instructors for this program.

Do camps/clinics include Jazz tickets?
All camps/clinics will include a credit for Utah Jazz game tickets. The amount varies by camp but is usually from $40-50.

Is food provided at the camps/clinics?
Participants must bring their own lunch for camps and clinics that last over four hours. No food will be included with any camp or clinic.

How old does my child need to be to participate?
Utah Jazz Camps are for boys and girls ages 4–14 (unless otherwise stated). Utah Jazz Clinics are for various age groups depending on the type of clinic. The appropriate age group will be stated on the registration page.

Are all camps/clinics co-ed?
Yes. The camps/clinics are open to both boys and girls unless otherwise indicated.

If my child attends multiple camps, do they get a pair of shoes with each one?
Yes. Your child will receive a pair of shoes each time they attend camp.

When is the deadline to register?
The deadline to register is seven days prior to the start of the camp/clinic.

Can parents stay and watch?
Yes. Parents/guardians are welcome to stay and watch the camp, though seating may be limited. If you do choose to stay and watch please be respectful of camp/clinic coaches and allow them to provide the instruction.

What should my child bring with them?
Each player should bring basketball/athletic shoes, basketball shorts and a shirt, a water bottle, and lunch (if the camp is longer than four hours in a day).

How long will my child’s camp/clinic run?
Camps run from two to four days. Clinics are single-day events.

What if my child can’t make it to a camp/clinic they signed up for?
Camp credit will be issued for cancellations only if the child misses the entire camp/clinic and staff is notified prior to the start of the session. Refunds are not offered.

How many coaches will be there to help the participants?
We work to have one coach for every 8–10 kids.

Will the coaches divide the participants into age-appropriate groups?
Our goal is to group participants together by age—or similar age—and then, if necessary, move some up or down depending on skills and experience.

Will participants get to scrimmage and compete against others their age?
Clinics are more condensed and do not allow much time for scrimmages. Camps, however, do include scrimmages as part of the curriculum.
