Sports Camp Program
To provide rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade boys an opportunity to participate in a program to enhance the complete student-athlete. The institute engages the boys in the following areas; academics, character building, physical training, sports and leadership. The program is for four weeks over the course of the summer. We teach the boys and provide them an experience to become a complete athlete.
We focus on the following areas in our Sports Camp Program:
Academics: The boys will participate in the Building Men Program ELA & Math Summer academic programs in the morning. The program is designed to give a project based learning experience that will support the student’s educational experience. Every summer we experience academic growth from our young men as they work together to support each other in the classroom. We will have a daily book break to encourage reading, work on goal setting, and daily task organization to help the young man navigate this busy time in their life.
Physical Fitness: We will be instructing the boys on general health and physical conditioning as well as integrate the lesson learned in the classroom while being active in the gym.
Character: The boys will experience Character Building Talks that will be comprised of Chalk Talks that highlight the topic of the week, guest speakers, or passion mapping. The Chalk Talk is interactive session that includes quotes, video clips, discussion prompts and reflective writing sections. The guest speakers will speak to the young men about what it takes to become “A” man, and how to develop the idea of positive significance and integrity while valuing and building relationships.
Basketball, Soccer, and Football: The sports camp will conclude the day for the boys. It will consist of different guest coaches presenting sports topics and drills, followed by league play. Area coaches present on different aspects of the game on alternating days. Each day we will focus on a character trait to teach the boy’s life through sports. The later weeks will feature inter school competitions, with the final week games will be played at a high school facility.
