All Star Sports Camps - Thieves in training

All Star Sports Camps - SHAM!All Star Sports Camps - THEIVES

This is the site of individuals who are taking not only the money of parents who TRUST that they are going to train their young athletes; but the money of the former Pro Athletes who they employed to coach them. For sure the Coaches are former professional athletes who were contracted to train the kids at this camp. Unfortunatly these coaches were not paid. The coaches had to obtain their own airline tickets (which were to be reimbursed) to travel to the site and were to be paid for their time training these young participants. Now keep in mind that these are professional athletes (former and semi - retired) they come from such prestigious backgrounds as NY  Jets, Giants, San Diego Charges; they are hall-of-famers and All Americans. They attended in good faith and trained these young athletes  but once they returned home, their checks either bounced or were rejected straight away. The man who is responsible for this is Steve DeLuca. Mr. DeLuca verbally and otherwise contracted  the afore mentioned athlete/coaches and then subsiquently did NOT PAY THEM. I know for a fact that several of them have redeposited the checks they received from "All Star" / DeLuca. The checks have been returned unpaid and bank charges are of course adding up. At this point most of them can not redeposit the checks anymore. Keep in mind that DeLuca charges $500.00 per child for a three day training program by these athlete/ coaches. DeLuca has one group come in monday to wednesday and another group thursday to saturday. They are not small groups of young athletes. He had many participants and could have easily paid the athlete/coaches who trained them.

Of the athlete/coaches  I know who trained these participants - all of them stayed in the dorms with the kids in seperate rooms for trainers so that they would be available to the kids should they be needed as well as instill (by example) the training commitment. By the way all these athlete/coaches were black. The other (non-black) coaches were invited to stay in the elegant guest quarters. I am sure their checks didn't bounce. In fact not a word has been heard from any of the "white"  coaches who stayed in the guest quarters. DeLuca also employed his wife and daughters of whom I am sure did not have a problem getting paid. 

Currently Mr. DeLuca is avoiding phone calls and not returning any messages. He has promised repeatedly to pay these athlete/coaches but still ( a month later) has not made good on any payments. He blames a sponsor Max Sports for not paying him although DeLuca himself was present to accept payments from the parents of the camp participants. He continues to have camps and employ other athletes to do training. As recently as yesterday one of the coaches who participated in the afore mentioned camp from a month ago (who was paid nominally) had a check bounce on him for a camp he just concluded that required more of his time ( like the coaches a month ago) . He is currently seeking his compensation - joining the afore mentioned coaches.

They are currently seeking legal action as well as contacting the local media to expose this SHAM!



  1. DO NOT ATTEND THIS CAMP! ALL-STAR SPORTS CAMP in Paisley, FL is not how it appears on their website. They will double charge you ($500) and advertise camp dates that won't take place. 2 1/2 months, BBB filing, blog posts, and STILL no remibursement for the overcharge of $500 back in May. Instead, Mr. Deluca blames me for his website overcharging. Almost 3 months, and I still do not have my $500 back. Do you want your child in this enviornment? STAY AWAY!

  2. I was his camp Chef. Worked seven days a week from 6:00am until whenever the Deluca faily finally arrived for dinner. Dinner service for athletes AND staff was at 5:oo pm and they would show up sometimes as late as 7:00 pm expecting to be fed. MY PAYCHECKS BOUNCED. Never paid.

  3. In 2010 our company entered into an agreement with Steve DeLuca of All-Star Sports Camps, Inc of Paisley, FL to rent a sports facility in Florida. A 100% refundable deposit of $5000 for the facility was paid to Steve DeLuca on February 22, 2010 with the understanding that we had until March 31, 2010 to cancel and receive a full refund. We cancelled prior to the cancellation deadline, however All Star Sports Camps, Inc. has refused to return the 100% deposit and has said the only way we will get refunded is to go to court and sue for it.

    We filed a Small Clams Suit in the amount of $2500 ( max. amount allowed) and was awarded a Judgement against All-Star Sports Camp by the courts. Unfortunately there are no funds to collect from.

    In 2011 Stephen B DeLuca was indicted for fraud scheme. So let the big boys go after this con man.
