SPARQ CAMP 2012
From: Nick Arcangeli : CSCS*D, USA Club Coach, Member of American College of Sports Medicine
To: Parents of SPARQ participants
The purpose of the SPARQ Camp is to prepare young athletes for the rigors of their fall season. During its 7 weeks, athletes will learn safe and effective methods for improving speed, agility, reaction time and overall quickness. To prepare for the rigors of their sport, we will also train to improve anaerobic endurance and recovery.
Every athlete is different and starts at a different level of conditioning and skill. During the camp, each athlete will participate in physical testing to indicate areas of strength and needs for improvement. These assessments will measure levels of flexibility, strength, power and muscle balance. Each athlete will receive results of the evaluations and suggestions for maintenance or improvement.
Every workout will begin with a full dynamic warm up. No athlete will be allowed to participate in drills until he/she has properly prepared for the drills and circuits planned for the session. Each athlete should have a pair of proper fitting cleats for field activities and sturdy sneakers for work in the Fitness Center. Athletes should also bring their own water bottle and towel. Locker rooms may not be available, so athletes must come ready to go. It is recommended that they not bring anything not needed for the workout: ipods, jewelry, large amounts of cash, ect…
We will meet in the Fitness Center for attendance and to go over the day’s agenda. Starting time is 7am and end at 9am. Workouts are held Monday thru Thursday beginning June 19(a Tuesday) through August 2nd. Athletes can work out all four days for two hours or any combination of days and hours that fit their schedule. Each day will include a strength and power component and a speed, agility and quickness block.
Sometimes injuries can happen. Please include a phone number I can call in case I need to contact you. Feel free to visit the workouts and ask any questions about them or your child’s athletic needs.
