SUMMER SPORTS CAMPS
Registration will open on April 1st!
This summer we will be hosting two separate weeks of basketball summer camps consisting of 3 available sessions! The three sessions are separate from each other, and you may register for multiple sessions by completing the separate registrations. Coach to player ratio is usually ~12:1.
The camp instructions will be geared to the appropriate ages of the children. The camp is for children 5 years old through current 8th graders. The younger ages will have drills that are more "fun" in nature for this particular age range, while the older children will have more technical drills to improve their skills. Our Sports Assistant, Brandon Gershman, who played collegiate basketball, will be leading the camps.
The cost for the camps is $95.
Beginner/Intermediate Camp -
This camp will be for players who are still developing a love for the game or are at a lower skill level. Unless your child has played multiple seasons of organized basketball, this is the camp for them! We will cover the essential skills of basketball including dribbling, passing, shooting, rebounding, and defense.
The morning session June 26-29 (M - TH) will be from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm each day, and the afternoon session will run from 3:30 - 6:30 pm each evening.
Advanced Camp -
The advanced camp is only morning sessions July 17-19 (M - W) from 9:00 - 12:30 pm each day. There is no evening session being offered the week of July 17-19 due to other events taking place in the gym on those evenings. This camp will be geared for players who are more advanced, and looking to take their game to the next level. If your child has played multiple seasons of organized basketball, they will be challenged, but fit well in this camp. We will cover the essential skills of basketball including dribbling, passing, shooting, rebounding, and defense just like in our basic's camp, but at a much more challenging level. We will also be running agility ladders, slide drills, hurdles and other drills that will focus on their footwork, stability, and stamina in relation to the five essential skills.
Registration will open on April 1st!
We will be hosting soccer summer camps led by Sean O'Connor and Seth Davey (see bios for Sean & Seth) along with a number of high-level instructors, for players ranging from 4 -18 years old. There will be three separate sessions: June 12th - 15th (morning session only from 9:00 - 12:00 pm), and June 19th - 22nd (morning session 9:00 am - 12:00 pm and evening session 5:00-8:00 pm). The groups will be split by gender and age, again this year we are offering an additional "young player" camp for children 4 & 5 years old (9:00-10:30 am for morning session and 5:00-6:30 pm for afternoon session for the week of June 19th-22nd for these 4 & 5 year old players). The camp training/instruction will be geared to the appropriate ages of the players. The younger players will have drills that are more "fun" in nature, while still encouraging development, for the particular age range, while the older players will have more technical games and drills to improve their skills at a higher level. The 10 hours of camp training will cost $95 ($55 for the younger age camp).

Below is what we are asking your children to have with them:
- water bottle!! (it is always hot at this time of year)
- rubber sole cleats, if they have them, or running shoes
- shin guards, if they have them
- size four or five (four for younger aged children) soccer ball with full name clearly written on the ball in black marker.
We will have large drums of water at the fields for your children to fill up as many times as needed. We will also be supplying a snack each day with bananas, oranges, Gatorade, and freeze pops. We will have snack time at the same time as our devotion time.
We ask that you meet out at the gazebo by the soccer fields Monday morning between 8:40 - 9:00 am for check-in, and then closer to 9:00am the remaining days. We will have someone there to answer any questions or requests that you may have.
Lastly, if you know of any other families that may be interested in being a part of this week's camp, we would love to have them join us as well. They can go to sports.colonial.org and then go to the "Summer Camps" page to register. Registration for week 1 will remain open until Sunday, June 11th at 11:59 pm. Registration for week 2 will remain open until Sunday, June 18th at 11:59 pm.
We are looking forward to being able to work with your child for that week on soccer, as well as to be able to share with them the truth of God's Word!
