Every year the Florence Athletic Department offers a variety of summer sports camps, but without a doubt the single most important camp the department provides is our Summer Strength and Conditioning Program. Getting additional training in the fundamentals of your child’s favorite sports is always strongly encouraged however, if your child is not working to improve their overall strength, explosive power, agility, and conditioning, any of the fundamental skills they learn in a sport specific camp or league will not have much impact. Our strength and conditioning program is designed to deliver every athlete into the upcoming school year in optimum condition to perform not only at an extremely high level, but also to reduce the potential for injury. Every coach on our staff believes strongly that putting the best athlete possible on the field will greatly improve our chance for success regardless of sport. Strong, fast, and explosive individuals tend to excel in every sport.
Our summer program is a six-week program that runs Monday - Thursday from 7:00 – 8:30 am. Strength camp will begin Monday; June 12 and end Thursday; July 27 (No camp Mon-Thurs; July 3-6) We also understand that your child may not be able to be at every day or week of the strength camp but please do not let that prevent them from signing up and attending when they are able. We as coaches realize that you and your children have trips and events during the summer, we want our athletes to enjoy their summer vacation, but as athletes they must also make a commitment to prepare for the upcoming seasons.
This year’s camp will cost $40.00 and is open to all incoming 7th - 12th grade boys and girls. Please join with our staff and encourage your athlete to regularly attend our strength camp. We will gladly work with you and your athlete regarding payment of the registration fee if needed. We will never let money be the reason to keep our athletes from attending. Students may pay for the camp all at once or a little at a time. Proceeds from the camp will go directly to the FISD Athletic program.
Registration forms can be downloaded from the ATHLETIC FORMS tab of the FISD website.
*Additional sport specific camp information will be coming soon.
