NCSA surveyed 3,350+ parents and student-athletes on how they think COVID-19 will impact camps this summer. Our experts discuss their results and insights.

SUMMARY
• 60% of parents would still send their student-athlete to camps or showcases this summer
• It’s important to consider the various state-by-state reopening plans because they will significantly impact when youth sports training and competitions can resume – but when asked if they plan to send their student-athlete to a camp this summer, 60% of parents said yes, 25% said maybe, and only 11% said no.
• However, when asked a similar question, college coaches were pessimistic about 2020 summer camps, with 71% of coaches sating they do not think summer camps will happen.
• Ultimately, with the NCAA Division 1 Committee’s decision to extend the dead period through July 31, whether parents and athletes are willing to attend summer camps or not, camps are unlikely to resume before the fall, even though parents would be willing to send their kids.
