Youth sports camp starts Monday

June 11, 2013 

The four-day Yosemite Badgers Sports Camp for boys and girls in third through eighth grade begins Monday, June 17 at 8 a.m. at Yosemite High School.

Designed to introduce youth to a number of sports including football, volleyball, basketball, baseball, softball, tennis, golf, water polo, track, soccer and cheer, the camp will teach the basic skills of each sport.

"The main focus of the camp is to provide children a positive first step into athletics," said Pat Lynch, Yosemite High JV football coach. "The essentials of athletics will be presented in a well-structured atmosphere with lots of encouragement."

Coaching staff will be an energetic and motivational group of individuals with knowledge in each sport. There will be a one to 10 coach to camper ratio.

Some of the YHS coaches running the camp will be Lynch (football), Sonja Mazaira and Michele Chenowith (volleyball), Reg Lewis (golf) and Jennifer Lincoln (cheer).

"Coaches will teach participants skills in a fun and upbeat way making sure each individual participant is learning something new in each sport every day," Lynch said. "Every participant will be given the necessary attention to learn at their own pace with a focus on having fun. The camp will also provide children a great way to stay active, while meeting new friends, and learning new sports."

Camp will start at 8 a.m. each of the four days and finish at 3 p.m.

Registration fee is $80 per student (family rates available) for all four days of instruction, camp T-shirt, lunch and snacks. Registrations will be accepted the opening day of camp.

Attendees are asked to wear workout clothes, socks and tennis shoes (no sandals) and bring swimming suites.
