L.E.A.D SUMMER SPORTS CAMPS FOR YOUTH

by Island Optimal Health & Performance and PacificSport Vancouver Island

 

 

CAMP INFORMATION:

 

Island Optimal and PacificSport VI have partnered to offer the 1st annual L.E.A.D (Leadership, Exercise, Athletics, Development) camp! The camps offer strength and conditioning as the foundation, with cross-training, goal setting, leadership development, and cultural awareness over six weeks. Each week participants will focus on individual skills in different outdoor Nanaimo locations. The camps alternate ‘on-location’ days in local parks with time at the Island Optimal Performance Centre for yoga, strength and conditioning sessions in a unique athletic camp experience.

 

Research demonstrates young athletes require greater variety in training to enhance their overall athletic development and longevity in sport. Each sport stresses specific muscles, joints, and the cardiovascular system in different ways. By incorporating athletic conditioning alongside and alternatively with technical development, we can decrease chances of injury, enhance overall health, and overall increase the athleticism of athletes.

 

SCHEDULE:

8:30am - noon

Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays: 3.5 hours of training with PacificSport VI's Geoff Hackett. Expert guest speakers, local high performance, and varsity athletes will also participate.
Tuesdays and Thursdays: will start with a Moksha Yoga session followed by strength and conditioning instruction with Island Optimal’s Strength Coach Patrick Milford.
