Ever wonder why soccer is the world’s most popular sport? With a little bit of fancy footwork, our coaches provide our athletes ample opportunity to explore just that. This year we kick it into gear emphasizing offensive and defensive strategies, shooting, passing and goal tending. Players of all skill levels are encouraged to try their feet at this fast-paced, international sport. Daily shoot-out drills and competitive games between campers and the staff always provide great athletic competition. Soccer shoes and shin guards are a must!
Always a summer favorite, our sports staff packs the day with various activities for the general sports enthusiast. Games such as: lacrosse, dodge ball, volleyball, kickball, basketball, soccer, wiffle ball, capture the flag and Ultimate Frisbee are just a few of our favorites. Each year, new activities surface as our visiting tourists challenge us to a new game or two — football or “futbol” anyone?
SUPER FIELD FUN:
This camp will excite even the sports novice. Campers will compete in: tug-of-war, “big ball,” the parachute wave, the 50 and 100 yard dash, the egg toss, sack races, shuttle-runs, obstacle course races, hurdles and relays, relays, relays! This is a camp that will get the competitive juices flowing. Come to sports camp and play with us!
TEAM REAL LACROSSE (Boys & Girls)
We are thrilled to offer this superb lacrosse program on our turf! If you have been playing lacrosse on Aquidneck Island, you have more than likely heard about the Villareal family’s lacrosse program. Coach Bill, Ann and fam are working together to share their passion and wealth of knowledge about the game. Technique training, endurance building and team play are a few of the skills TEAM REAL will teach you; a week under their direction will improve your game exponentially. They will assess your skills and raise your bar all week long, and the fun this group enjoys is second to none! Come see what TEAM REAL has to offer! (Other than a wish to improve your game — a lacrosse stick, mouthguard and eye protection (goggles) is a must!)
Is a week full of traditional ball sports: basketball, softball, flag football, volleyball, and soccer combined with some non-traditional alternatives: bocce ball, croquet, broom ball and water polo. We may try our hand at juggling and a friendly, competitive softball throw — and who knows, perhaps a dunking tank to work on those “pitching” target softball skills! Come join in the fun; it’s going to be a ball!
What can you make with a blue,yellow, black, green and red hula hoop? Come to camp Olympics and see! Camp staff will be the judges and referee’s for a weeks worth of competitve fun. We plan to mix some crazy play along with the traditional summer events; so put your thinking and sun caps on — and join us for some gold medal fun!
WET -N- WILD:
We culminate our summer-fun by drenching our opponents. Does water balloon lacrosse, water balloon bombardment, or sponge bomb Frisbee appeal to you? How about a slip and slide competition? There is always something special in store for our final week of camp. At “Summer at St. Michael’s,” you will certainly “soak” up some rays and remain “cool” during the long, hot August days!
