This summer the Cultural and Human Services Department, Athletics Division offers a variety of sports camps. One can choose from basketball, soccer, soccer showcase, volleyball, baseball, elite basketball, flag football, cheerleading, and Olympic sports camp. The camps focus on drills in each respective sport as well as learning new ones and refining old ones. Toward the end of the week, they have scrimmage games against each other giving them an opportunity to use their new skills. Each Friday, the camp goes on a field trip with lunch provided.
Daily the soccer camp practices at Senator Gwen Margolis Park, however on Wednesdays the camp goes to the beach, not only for some fun in the sun, but also to play beach soccer. When the camp returns to Pelican Community Park they play indoor soccer in the RK Sports Center Gymnasium.
The basketball camp tends to be one of the most popular sports camp. The elite basketball camps will focus on games against each other. The baseball camp will emphasize the proper techniques of hitting, throwing, and catching. The cheerleading camp teaches the cheerleaders chants, cheers, and dances. The volleyball camp teaches the proper techniques of serving and hitting. Flag football, a new camp this year, teaches the basics of blocking, passing, and running with the ball, as well as defensive techniques. And lastly, the Olympic sports camp emphasizes a different sport each day, which includes soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball and flag football.
We hope that everyone has enjoyed their experience and has learned a new skill to be used during the fall/winter/spring sports programs.
