I know I have spoken with many of you already about this camp/clinic we are doing this summer and wanted to get all the information out to you and explain what we are doing in a little bit more detail. Hoping you all can join us.
On June 15th-17th, we will be hosting a coaches hands-on clinic and athletes skills camp. We have asked National Clinicians Steve and Sue Arkell and Tony Retrosi to come and help us run a Coaches “hands on” clinic to help teach spotting techniques for upper level skills as well as an Optional and Compulsory skills camp Saturday and Sunday respectively. We have 72 spaces for each optional and compulsory camp. We will be reserving participants for our own athletes until April 16th. After April 16th, its first come, first serve until we reach max capacity of 72 per clinic. There is no limit to coaches allowed for Friday’s clinic. There is no registration deadline. We are keeping registration open until we are filled. So feel free to call and check availability at the gym at 941-758-5775 or Chris’ Cell at 941-730-8016
We invite coaches to come and learn spotting techniques for advanced optional skills on each event for 4 hours on Friday afternoon starting at 2pm and ending at 6pm. Steve and Sue will be bringing 4 of their upper level athletes as “spotees” for the hands-on clinic. We are also opening an invite to coaches that wish to bring any Level 8 – 10 gymnast who would make for good “spotees”. There will be no charge for any gymnast on Friday for the coaches clinic. We will need you to email us the skills those athletes are training so we can see if there is a need for those skills. But extra training work for free is always a good thing!
Saturday, we will be holding the optional skills clinic. Gymnast will get a chance to work on each event with either Steve and Sue Arkell as well as Tony Retrosi. SFG Staff and any coaches that wish to practice their new spotting skills are welcome to coach both days! This skills clinic will run from 9am to 5:30 pm with a 90 minute break for lunch. SFG Booster Club will be providing lunch for all gymnast and coaches that participate. They will also be planning some fun activities during their break.
The compulsory camp will be held on Sunday and will run from 9am to 2pm. There will be a 60 minute break for lunch that will be provided by SFG Booster Club for all gymnast and coaches. We will be splitting the compulsory camp between compulsory skills and a 90 minutes open gym for the athletes to develop some of their early optional skills.
Prep opts: For prep optional athletes, please use your best judgment as coaches. If your athletes are working level 7+ skills, then the optional camp would be great. If not, we recommend the compulsory camp.
Enclosed you will find the brochure along with the registration form and the skills evaluation sheet for grouping. Please distribute to your team kids at your convenience. The front of the form is for your athlete to fill out their camp skill “wish list”. On the back, we ask that you write any and all progressions you have worked with your athlete so that we can properly group them prior to the skills camp. Prices are listed on the brochure, if your gym sends 5 kids to camp, you can send 1 coach to the Friday clinic for FREE. If your gym sends 10 kids to our camp, you may send as many coaches as you would like for free. Cost for Friday only is $100 per coach unless you have athletes attending. All we ask is that you list them on the registration form, along with any USAG information so that we may submit it to our insurance. We are hoping to make this an annual clinic and will continue to try and help it grow over the next few years with more national coaches and additional facility for boys next year.
We are hoping you all can come and bring some kids to this great one day camp. If you have any questions, please call Chris at 941-730-8016 which is his personal cell phone. He will be happy to discuss with you any and all questions you may have.
