On July 21-23, there will be a wrestling camp for first through sixth graders, as it teaches participants the basics of the sport, while keeping it fun. The competition camp is for seventh through twelfth graders, to be held July 24-28; this camp is meant to be more serious, as former All-Americans come in to discuss technique with the campers. Not only will campers be able to learn new techniques, but will have matches against other campers in a team format. These camps are instrumental in helping keep the wrestling program alive.
Other camps have included the following:
Volleyball held their Little Runners camp on July 5-6, as well as the first session of their middle school camp, which is made of sixth through eight graders, and hosted more than 60 kids. On July 11-12, they will hold session two of the Middle School Camp and the High School All Skills Camp. On Friday, July 15, the Elite Camp will be held for 11th-12th grade students. Campers learn the technical skills of volleyball, including passing, setting, serving, and hitting. They play competitive games and get a lot of repetitions. It’s a fun competitive atmosphere, and their hope is to share that with the campers, so they get a feel for the sport. It’s a family-oriented program, and they like to get everyone around involved.
Men’s Soccer conducts two weeks of Youth Soccer Camp, from June 6-10 and June 20-24. Men’s soccer also hosted one week of All-Sports camp, which ran from June 13-17. These camps help promote CSUB and our student-athletes in the community, and opens opportunity to a variety of sports that might not usually be practiced or participated in, such as badminton, dodgeball, golf, flag football, as well as teaching bicycle safety before cycling around the campus. Other head coaches and assistants are brought in to teach the subject. Campers get to try out a little bit of everything.
There will also be a baseball camp in early August – more information to come.
