Cross Country Camp (COED - Grades 3-8)
August 7; 8:00 AM – 10:00 AM
Cost:
$35

We are excited to announce our second VCS Cross Country Clinic. Cross Country is a sport in which
teams and individuals run on open-air courses over natural terrain such as dirt or grass. Cross-
country running is one of the disciplines under the umbrella of athletics and is a good training
for all sports. The clinic will be ran by the Village Christian HS Cross Country coach and coaching
staff who will teach your young athlete the importance of the long haul and endurance.

Speed and Agility (COED - Grades 6th-12th)
June 29-July 31 (Tues/Thurs: 1:30-2:30pm, Sat: 10:00-11:00am)
Cost:
$225

Speed is a bi-product of applied strength and technique, which we teach both. Breaking down sprint mechanics and the different way the movements we do during weight training apply to the activity, it simply makes running easier and more efficient, guaranteeing a faster student-athlete. Moving in a straight line is important, but most sports require you to move in multiple directions quickly. We improve agility by implementing the concepts of our core movements, while applying new stressors and situations to an athlete. Building skill on top of a base at appropriate paces rather than forcing skill on top of chaos.

Track and Field Camp (COED – Grades 3-8)
August 14; 8:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Cost:
$65

Track & Field is a great way for young athletes to improve their speed, endurance and coordination. They will learn the basic skills and tactics of both running and field events, such as sprints, relays and more. The clinic will be ran by the new Village Christian HS Cross Country and Track coach and coaching staff.
