The Benefits of Sports Camp

Sports camps offer a unique opportunity for high school athletes to boost their visibility while improving their skills and abilities. At first glance, it would seem that the main reason to attend a sports camp would be to improve one’s skills at their chosen sport. However, there are so many other benefits that sport camps provide young athlete with. Some of these benefits include:
Meeting New People
Sports camps bring together a wide variety of student athletes from across the country. Your athletewill expand their horizons by getting to know kids from a different location or socio-economic background. They will also get the chance to improve their level of play, by playing against a bigger body of talent, dedicated to the sport.
Mentorship
High school coaches are dedicated individuals who put their time and effort into coaching but the time they spend with athletes are limited. At a sports camp, you student will have consistent access to top coaches and other professional that can provide mentorship to them throughout the camp. Often these relationships can continue through the school year and be a valuable resource when it is time to consider post-graduation plans.
Personal Responsibility
Time away from home forces a student to be responsible for him/herself. Sports camp can provide an environment that gives the student the freedom to learn time management and discipline, while also providing a safety net for those who struggle to adjust.
Team Building Skills
Most high school sports are team sports. Therefore,athletes must be able to play with different teams, coaches and players if they want to play at the next level. Sports camps focus not only on improving individual skills but on team building exercises that athletes can use going forward. It also provides an athlete a great opportunity to play with new players and coaches and learn different systems ofpreparation and play.
Visibility
By attending a sports camp, your athlete will be able to showcase his or her talent to coaches and recruiters who often visit camps searching for new talent. If your athlete impresses the coaches at the camp with their level of play and character, the coaches might pass on the recommendation to recruiters. This increased visibility is essential if your athlete plans to continue the sport competitively at the collegiate level.
Sports camps can be great fun for high schoolers while also providing them with a challenging opportunity to improve their athletic ability. For serious athletes, it is definitely one of the best ways to spend a school break without losing skills or getting out of shape.

Could not agree more...I have been a youth coach, jr.high coach, HS coach and a college head coach and a camp coach at over 250 camps. Going to camp is a great way to become a better player and sometimes a better person..I recommend going to Fellowship of Christian Athletes Camps they are fantastic. FCACamps.org
