  • Conditioning Camp for Middle School Athletes: June-July, 3x per week, 6th-8th grade

    Nick Beachy, a 2013 MPCDS graduate, is a certified trainer who will be helping middle school student-athletes interesting in playing football. The camp will be held three times a week, starting Monday, June 3rd and finishing July 5th. Nick will be teaching conditioning, lower and upper body strength, lower and upper body dynamic movement, agility, flexibility, and much more. 
    This summer, I will once again be offering the strength and conditioning camp for student athletes interested in playing middle school football. I am planning to hold it 3x a week - Monday, Wednesday, Friday - at 10 AM. The main focuses will be heat acclimation and conditioning, lower and upper body strength, lower and upper body dynamic movement and explosiveness, agility, flexibility, and stability, with an emphasis on football related exercises and movement patterns. The camp will start on Monday, June 3rd, and will run for 5 consecutive weeks, finishing on Friday, July 5th. The cost per athlete will be $100 per week, paid in weekly increments. Additionally, if you sign up for a package of at least 3 weeks, I will take an additional 10% off, which saves you the price of a session. These weeks do not have to be consecutive. If you sign up for all 5 weeks, you will save the price of 2 sessions at this rate.  Also, I am capping the camp at 10 participants - first come first served; however, if there is significantly more interest than that, I will consider opening a second time slot.
