Our pre-teen foundation camp program will set the stage for young athletes to develop the fundamental movement patterns and tools necessary for sport and overall health. Each day will consist of two 90 minutes sessions; one in the weight room and the other focusing on physical literacy. This half day camp focuses on having fun, while teaching children fundamental motor and movement patterns, which are the building blocks for future athletic successes. Campers will learn bodyweight strength exercises, and will practice these movements daily within the Smith and Laycoe Varsity Training Center. Each day will involve activities and cooperative games that are designed to develop physical literacy concepts such as: agility, balance, coordination, flexibility and strength. At the end of each day participants will learn recovery protocols by practicing flexibility, mobility, and stability exercise. Each day will be high energy, and your child will come home happy and tired! Each participant will also receive a summary including the key movements and a sample program for them to continue to develop their foundational strength, power and speed.
