3 tips for picking the perfect sports camp
Will you go solo or with your squad?
Before you decide where to send that final deposit, ask around and find out if your teammates are going to any camps or clinics as well. You might be aching to go to a cool field hockey camp in a sunny locale, but if your entire team is headed to a diff spot, you might want to consider tagging along with them. That said, spend time thinking about what will be best for improving your moves. If you tend net, spending a week at camp that focuses on goalies might be just the thing.
Will you travel near or far?
Obviously, sleepaway camps can be pricey. Even if your parents say “no way” to you heading outta town for athletics, consider local day camp options. Maybe nearby college might have a clinic you can carpool to with a teammate or friend. Or perhaps the varsity quad is hosting a camp for younger players. Summer is the perfect time to hone your talent so start looking now for all the opportunities you can.
