VCU Summer Camps Update

Coach Smart will not be hosting camp at VCU this summer. However we are working with incoming VCU Coach Will Wade and his team to ensure a seamless transition. The summer camp dates will remain the same and the campers who registered for Smart Camp will be automatically enrolled in Coach Wade’s camp. Visit for more details or to log into your camp account.

If you no longer want to attend the summer camp, email with REFUND in the subject line and we will refund 100% of your payment. Please include your camper’s name and the registered session(s) in the body of your email.

We apologize for any inconvenience this transition has caused, but we are confident that Coach Wade will carry on the tradition of providing a fun, safe environment for boys and girls to improve their basketball skills, make new friends and get fit. Coach Wade was Coach Smart’s first hire at VCU and spent four years as an assistant coach at VCU before becoming head coach at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

“The time will come when winter will ask what you were doing all summer.”

Today was just a terrific day. I’m getting a chance to meet all of the people who support the program and so many alumni came out for the press conference. I met most of the guys on the team and the ones that I didn’t get a chance to meet I talked to on the phone.  There’s a warmth in the reception that my family and I have had here.  It’s a great first step and I’m excited to take the next one.
