Summer Camps

Sport Leadership

Our camps have sport-specific components that were designed with guidance from the University of Alberta Golden Bears and Pandas Head Coaches, while the delivery of the programming is carried out by alumni of the Golden Bears and Pandas as well as by current varsity athletes. Our sport camp programming and age groups are consistent with the guidelines of each sport’s Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework. 

In addition to the sport-specific training each participant will receive, camp participants will also take part in a number of familiar games which we have adapted to help our participants improve their fundamental movement skills. This will not only serve as a platform for future participation and competition in whichever sport they choose to play, but it will also improve the sport skills associated with the camp they’re presently enrolled in.
