Reflection- My first Youth Camp – Summer 2013

Why did I choose to focus on a Speed and Strength Youth Camp this summer?  Why this summer?maxoutsign

 There were many reasons.  I truly enjoy training all my clients who range in age from 10 to 70+ but I truly have a passion for working with Youth.  I’ve been wanting to conduct a Youth Fitness Camp for many years.  This year, I was able to bring on board a Program Manager who has helped me with the Administrative and logistical aspects of running a program such as this.
  As many of you may know, it’s a very competitive market in the Bay Area with many single sport summer programs for Youth. Having a Program Manager allowed me to focus on what I do best, developing a program and directly working with the Youth.
I love working with Youth because they have such unending energy and a willingness to learn.  I also love seeing kids learning new skills and improving athletically. It was great to hear from a parent who said her daughter was so excited about what she learned at camp that she was teaching her family workout routines at home.
 This summer I had two sessions – one for boys/girls entering grades 6-8 and the other session for boys/girls entering grades 9-12.  Looking back it was a great experience for myself and for the kids.  Within the week time frame, I saw them getting faster, stronger, and improving using proper form.  On a personal level, I found that being “on” the entire 2 hours training the kids was hard work. I’m used to working one-on-one.  Hats off to classroom teachers who have to be “on” teaching an entire class for an entire school day.session2
I look forward to continuing, improving, and growing my Speed and Strength Youth Camps during the Summer of 2014!
