Frequently Asked Questions

What COVID-19 precautions and safety measure will apply to in person clinics?
All camps and clinics will follow recommended COVID-19 guidelines in conjunction with local health departments and the facility of use. All camps and clinics will be conducted with reduced capacity, no shared equipment, a modified curriculum and all participants must complete an online health screening prior to check-in. Parents and participants will be required to wear a mask when checking in and when not participating in basketball activities. To learn more about our precautions and safety measures visit: https://jazzyouth.com/jazz-camps-and-clinics/covid-19.

Can parents attend clinics?
Parents will not be allowed to attend in-person camps or clinics. Parents will need to accompany their child to the entrance of the clinic and help them check in. After your child is checked in, you will be asked to leave. When picking up your child at the conclusion of their camp or clinic please wait for them outside the facility.

What if my child isn't feeling well or is exposed to COVID-19?
If a participant is not feeling well or is exposed to COVID-19 they should not attend their camp or clinic. Parents will receive a full refund if their child cannot attend a camp or clinic because they are sick or exposed to COVID-19. If a participant is diagnosed with COVID-19 during a camp, then the remainder of the camp will be canceled. Participants will receive a prorated refund for the portion of the camp that was not completed.

Will virtual clinics still be offered?
Our plan is to still offer virtual clinics in conjunction with in-person clinics if internet access and space allows. If virtual attendance is available as an option, it will be noted on a camp or clinic’s registration page.

What does my child need to bring to the clinic?
Participants should wear basketball shoes, shorts, and a t-shirt to camps and clinics. Masks should be worn when checking in and while not participating in basketball activities. In addition, we ask that each player bring a labeled water bottle, sack lunch and basketball. If participants are unable to bring a basketball, we will provide one to use during the camp or clinic. Participants may also bring a towel if desired.

Why sign up for a Virtual Training or Clinic?
Virtual trainings and clinics give you access to expert coaching from the safety of your own home. Participants connect with coaches via Zoom and receive training, instruction, and real-time feedback, just like you would in an in-person training session. Plus, you get a pair of adidas D.O.N. Issue #2 shoes and an adidas basketball.

What is the difference between a virtual training and a virtual clinic?
Virtual trainings are 30-minute sessions where participants connect with coaches to receive drills, instruction and feedback. Trainings are available as either private one-on-one sessions or semi-private sessions with no more than four participants with a single coach. Virtual clinics are similar to traditional basketball clinics. They are open to 10-60 participants per session and run for 75 minutes. Boys and girls will work with multiple coaches to receive instruction and feedback.

What is different about a virtual offering compared to in-person offerings?
Virtual trainings and clinics provide participants with basketball skills sessions with a Camps + Clinics coach via Zoom. While you won’t be working with a coach in person, you’ll still get specialized instruction and immediate feedback from one of our high-level coaches.

What equipment do I need at home to participate?
You will need a basketball, space to dribble, a device that is running Zoom (laptop, phone, or tablet), a good internet connection, four cones that can be used for drills and a water bottle. A basketball hoop is not necessary to participate in a training. However, if you do have access to a hoop, try and set up where you will be able to use it.

How will I receive my D.O.N. Issue #2 Shoes and basketball that are included with Virtual Trainings and Clinics?
Your D.O.N. Issue #2 Shoes and basketball will be shipped to you within two weeks of your registration. 

What is Zoom and is it hard to use?
Zoom is a video communication app. It’s free and easy to use and will allow our expert coaches to connect with you and your child when participating in Camps + Clinics trainings. Visit our technology page here to learn more about Zoom and for information on how to test your video and audio connections.

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/training?
For in-person offerings, each player will receive a Jazz/adidas reversible jersey, 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 #2 shoes. If a clinic is less than four hours, the shoes are not included. For virtual offerings, each player will receive a pair of adidas D.O.N. Issue #2 shoes and an adidas basketball.

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 in-person camps/clinics will include a credit for Utah Jazz game tickets. The amount varies by camp but is usually from $40-50. Virtual offerings do not include Jazz game tickets or credit.

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/trainings 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?
For in-person offerings, 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). For virtual offerings, the following items are needed: Internet access, device to use for training (smart phone, tablet or computer), basketball, four cones (or plastic cups), water bottle, open space to be able to participate in drills that will be part of the training.

How long will my child’s camp/clinic/training run?
Camps run from two to four days. Clinics are single-day events. Trainings include three 30 minute sessions.

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.
