Multi-Sports Training Camp will take place at Antiochian Village in Bolivar, PA from August 11-17, 2019.   

Sports Camp is exhausting and exhilarating at the same time!! Chaperones are with athletes 24/7 (ok, we do get 2 breaks a day). The day begins around 6:30AM (for the slow movers), and 7ish for others. We usually get to bed around 11 or so.... The day goes something like this: {This is a very general schedule}

Wake athletes up 
Breakfast
Primary Sport Training - outside for 2.5 hours
Meet at Pavilion 
Cabin - to prepare for afternoon sports 
Lunch

Rotate through different sports - outside 2.5hours
Pavilion
Cabins - shower/etc.
Dinner
Pavilion
Evening entertainment differs each night 
Bed (Whew)

If you or anyone you know is interested and have any questions, please have them contact me. Most (not all) athletes love this camp! 

Athletes can not "rest" during the day either in the cabin or the Health Center. This is a non-smoking camp!!

When an athlete asks you to sign their form, please do not sign if you do not think the athlete will make it through the whole week - it is extremely hard on everyone, if an athlete has to go home.

Coaches: when an athlete asks you to sign their form, please do not sign if you do not think the athlete will make it through the whole week - it is extremely hard on everyone, if an athlete has to go home.

ATHLETE CRITERIA & REQUIREMENTS

  • Applicants of all ability levels welcomed! (Due to the Special Olympics required 1:4 coach athlete ratio, this camp is not appropriate for those athletes requiring 1-to-1 attention for behavioral and/or physical needs.)
  • Athletes must be able to walk up and down hills without assistance. Please note that this is a walking camp and there are hills on the campus.
  • Athletes from Montgomery County must be 18 years of age by camp date (8/12/18).
  • Athletes must have trained/participated in at least one sport for Montgomery County during the past year.

  • Athletes must be able to deal with last-minute changes, due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances
  • Athletes must be coachable, and/or accept instruction from new individuals

If an athlete is not able to withstand this level of participation, this camp will probably not be a good experience for this athlete. Pre-camp fitness training is highly recommended.
