Chess Camp

        

Sign up for chess camp! Students will learn chess fundamentals and strategies that enhance learning skills and critical thinking. We will build confidence. Novice students and experienced players are encouraged to sign up as we will have two levels. The first day we will have an assessment at the beginning of the day. This review is simply to assign campers to appropriate groups as some already have chess experience. A great feature of chess is that we separate by current ability- age is not significantly important. You will see this at tournaments too. A first grader with experience can easy be stronger than a fourth grader just starting the game. This allows anyone that knows how to play to be competitive for their current ability level. We always encourage the kids to "Study and Practice" to improve at anything. This approach will allow them to move up in rating and compete against more challenging opponents. Each day we will try to complete two chess lessons for each ability group. In between lessons, we will be practicing with each other or having some creative chess teamed activities.

Youth Hoops (REGISTER DIRECTLY ON YH WEBSITE)

 

Youth Hoops is a youth basketball instruction firm offering ongoing basketball camps and clinics to kids (boys & girls) ranging in ages 6 to 14. The camps and clinics are based on a comprehensive course curriculum, which emphasizes basketball fundamentals. Such basketball fundamentals include dribbling, passing, shooting, one-on-one defense, footwork, screening and rebounding.  Using professional and portable basketball drills, kids will be able to improve their game greatly. In addition, many drills may be repeated anywhere.  The goal of our camp is to provide every camper, within a fun-filled atmosphere, the basic fundamentals necessary to play basketball. We emphasize the fundamentals. Every camper will be shown what to practice and more importantly HOW TO PRACTICE. Everyone will receive plenty of individual attention. We want each camper to be a better player when the week is over.
