Play Like a Champion Today
Virtual Summer Camp: June 1-19, 2020
With youth sports across America interrupted and many summer camps shut down, Play Like a Champion is offering kids of all ages a chance to get moving and learn new skills. Our new Virtual Summer Camp will take place from June 1-19th, providing kids with 90 minutes each day of live programming* from an all-star lineup of youth, high school and college coaches. Each day will include a period of sport specific training, mindfulness exercises designed to improve mental health and performance, cardio-focused fitness, and character development from Play Like a Champion staff. Most importantly, the camp is designed to provide a fun outlet for kids from across the country.
*Camp sessions will be made available "on-demand" each day for all registrants
What can campers expect?
Camp sessions will take place live Monday - Friday beginning at 11:00 am EDT and last for approximately 90 minutes. The sessions will be available on-demand for attendees who cannot attend during the live broadcast or just can't get enough of the fun! A typical day will include the following:
Welcome & Joke of the Day (5 Minutes)
Sport-Specific Training Drills (20 Minutes)
Cardio & General Movement Activities (30 Minutes)
Character Development (15 Minutes)
Mindfulness Meditation (10 Minutes)
Closing Gratitude Exercise (5 Minutes)
The "sport-specific training" portion of camp will include coaches leading workouts in a variety of sports that both hone traditional skills and encourage sports sampling. While designed around a popular sport, these workouts will be adaptable to any child's setup or equipment and focus on a wide-range of exercises that will benefit kids playing any sports. Making new friends is also key to every camp experience. While attending this virtual camp, kids will have the opportunity to connect with other children from diverse neighborhoods all across the country.
Play Like a Champion is making this virtual camp available for free because we believe that all children, regardless of their family’s economic circumstances, should be able to play sports and participate in summer camps, whether virtual or in person. COVID-19 has hit some families much harder than others. We are asking you to consider making a donation to Play Like a Champion so that we can continue pursuing our mission of providing a safe and supportive youth sports environment for all children. The recommended donation for this camp is $30 per camper, but we appreciate whatever you can contribute.
If you have any questions about the camp, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. This camp imagines the beginning of a new future of youth sports where all children have the opportunity to play, to grow and to flourish. There are limited spots available for this exciting new virtual camp, so register today and join us this June!
