COVID Protocols: 

It is our goal to have the safest experience possible. As the camp date is still months away, it is impossible to tell exactly what our on site protocols will be.

  • Jr. Wizards Camps will follow all state and local guidelines, plus and any additional venue specific guidelines.
  • If the local/venue health guidelines change, we will offer customers a 72 hour window to withdraw from a session and/or switch to another session/location without penalty.

Medication can be dropped off at check in on the first day of camp.  All medication must be picked up on the last day of the session.  Any medication left at camp will be returned to the Wizards corporate offices at Capital One Arena.  Arrangements can be made to pick up any medication that is returned to the office by emailing juniorwizards@monumentalsports.com.  Any medication not picked up by January 31, 2022 will be discarded.

How are the campers split up?

Campers are initially grouped by age, and by skill level after an initial evaluation period on the first day of camp.  Jr. Wizards Basketball Camp staff will attempt to honor any grouping request, provided that the request is a) submitted prior to the start of camp, b) will not impact the competitive balance of a particular group, or c) will not have a negative impact on any camper's physical well being. 

Final grouping decisions are made at the sole discretion of Jr. Wizards staff.  Any request for camper movement that is made after camp has begun will be judged on a case by case basis.

Will any NBA/WNBA players/coaches attend camp?

While we we make every effort to secure player visits to camp, appearances are not guaranteed and are subject to player availability and schedule.  When possible, select Wizards, Mystics and/or Go-Go players may visit camp to interact with participants.  Additionally, Wizards/Mystics/Go-Go coaches, staff, alumni, community ambassadors, and mascots may also visit.
