Cedarcrest High School offering sports camps for Lower Valley kids this summer

Cedarcrest High School sports teams are offering various summer camp programs for youth athletes in the Lower Valley. The Red Wolves basketball, football, volleyball and soccer teams, along with their cheer program, are holding these camps. Here is a rundown of each camp being offered.

-CHS’ football program will be holding its summer camps July 16-19 at the high school stadium in Duvall. The camps are open to players ages 7-15, with two separate sessions – younger ages (7-11) from 4:00-6:00 p.m. and the older kids (12-15) from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Cost for this camp is $80, and players will receive instruction from Red Wolves coaches, led by head coach Jason Frederick, on football skills and techniques that will help them be better football players in time for this fall season. The camp is a non-contact camp, and players will be required to wear field-turf approved football cleats or athletic shoes while participating in the camp.

-The Red Wolves boys and girls’ basketball programs are holding their camps at the end of this month, June 25-28, so if you want to register your kids for this, you need to get on that fast. The camps are open to boys and girls in grades 1-9, with separate sessions for various age groups: younger girls (grades 1-5) from 8:30-10:30am; older girls (grades 6-9) from 11:00am-1:00pm; middle-school and older boys (grades 7-9) from 1:30-3:30pm; older elementary boys (grades 4-6) from 3:30-5:30pm and younger elementary boys (grades 1-3) from 5:30-7:30pm. All camp sessions are at CHS’ gym in Duvall. Cost for each camp is $75 and campers will receive instruction in basketball fundamentals and skills that will help them improve their games. Aspects of the game such as ball handling, passing, live ball and dead ball moves, and shooting will be discussed. Both camps will feature instruction from CHS coaches and players, led by girls’ coach Brad Knowles or boys’ coach Mark Prince.

-CHS’ volleyball program will have a three-day camp July 24-26, at the school. The camp is open to girls players in grades 7-9 this fall, and takes place each day from 3-6pm. Campers will receive instruction from Red Wolve volleyball coaches and players, led by head coach Brandon Jones, on fundamental skills of volleyball which will help players improve their overall level of play in advance of the school seasons this fall, and the club season which starts in January of 2013. Skills expected to be discussed include ball handling, footwork technique, arm swing mechanics, conditioning, and rules. This year, the camper of the week as decided by the coaches will get a chance to sit with the Cedarcrest High School team on its bench during a home volleyball match this fall.

-The Red Wolves soccer camp will be July 9-11 at the CHS stadium. The camps, open to boys and girls in grades K-8 this fall, costs $60 if you get your registration in by June 25th or $70 at the door or mailed in after June 25th. Campers will be grouped by age and skill level, with an anticipated 5:1 camper-staff ratio, meaning more individualized instruction designed to help players improve their skills in the game of soccer. Players and coaches from both CHS boys’ and girls’ soccer teams, led by the teams’ respective head coaches Zach Pittis (boys) and Evan Hatch (girls), will be on hand to instruct your kids on the fundamentals of the game. There will be free snacks and drinks on the last day of the camp, and the registration fee includes a camp T-shirt. Players are asked to bring tennis shoes or turf-approved soccer cleats, shin guards, weather-appropriate clothing and a soccer ball with the player’s name on it.

-The CHS cheer camp is July 16-19 at the school. The cost is $60, and is open to girls in grades K-8, with separate sessions: elementary school grades (K-5) from 4-5:30pm and middle school grades (6-8) from 6-8pm. This camp will offer girls a chance to learn various aspects of cheer, including chants, cheers, dance moves and jumps as well. The first 50 registrants will receive a set of pom-poms and if you register your child by July 1, they will also get a camp T-shirt. Campers are asked to wear a t-shirt, shorts, tennis shoes, and have their hair in a ponytail. No jewelry will be permitted during the camp.

Registration forms for all camps, along with contact information for those who have questions, are located on Cedarcrest High School’s web page (in the section at right labeled “Summer Sports Camps”), which is linked at right in our news links, or these forms can also be picked up during school hours at CHS’ main office in Duvall. Checks for all camps need to be made out to the school and sent in with your registration.
