Summer is a busy time of year for Sports Floors. Gym floors see a lot of wear and tear throughout the school year, and while we stay busy doing what we do best – making sports floors look and perform as well as possible – we want to help you keep your young athletes busy as well. There is no better way to help your kids create sweet summer memories, stay active and be ready for tryouts than signing them up for one of the many Memphis summer sports camps. So, before you type “sports camps near me,” check out our first annual list of the top summer sports camps. 

To help make your summer easier, you can find a link to each camp and register for them right from our blog.

Memphis Sports & Events Center Summer Camps

As one of Memphis’s newest and most versatile athletic facilities in the city, it isn’t surprising that the MSEC is a major destination for summer campers in the 901. We’ve kept up with the MSEC since we completed their flooring in 2022, so here’s what you should know about their summer programs. 

Hoops 901 Basketball Camp

Dates: Six short-term programs between May and August

Age Group: Boys & Girls Ages 6-16

Location: 995 Early Maxwell Blvd., Memphis, TN 38104

Ready to shoot some hoops? Over the course of the Hoops 901 program, your little athlete will develop the abilities and skills to be an active team player on their basketball team. Through athletic conditioning, agility work, and gameplay, your child will learn tips from the pros they can bring to their game when the next season hits. 

But as the MSEC states, “It won’t be all work and no play!” Campers will enjoy a wide range of breakout games like dodgeball or ultimate frisbee to keep the fun going.
