Sports Camp 2017
Daily, from 06/05/2017 to 06/08/2017, 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM
Basketball, Tennis & Volleyball
Our goal is to work hard to learn and improve basketball, volleyball or tennis skills and develop a strong sense of teamwork while maintaining a safe, Christian learning environment. We hope all campers will walk away with improved understanding and playing ability.
We meet at UBC each morning. After stretching and pep rally, kids are bused to a local CCISD school (basketball and volleyball) or Bay Area Racquet Club (tennis) for clinic time. Kids are divided according to grade for play. We come back to UBC for lunch and devotional time, then head back for afternoon drills and skills. We end our day back at UBC with a video and award presentations!
EACH CHILD WILL NEED TO:
- wear tennis shoes
- bring a sack lunch or may purchase one for $ 5.00 per day
For kids who have completed Grades 1-5
Basketball Camp is led by Coach David Ward, head basketball coach from Texas City and coach at Clear Falls, along with the assistance of other high school basketball coaches.
