Popular Youth Sports Camps Return

Westmont kicks off its annual youth summer sports camps Monday, June 19, beginning with Sports Skills, which helps develop the motor skills of co-ed campers from ages 5-10, and girls soccer. In the following five weeks, an array of sports camps including archery/badminton, track and field, cheer, soccer, volleyball, baseball tennis and basketball will be attended by more than a thousand youngsters. Parents can register their children for half-day camps, which cost $200, or full-day camps that are $250 at www.westmont.edu/summercamps. Extended care is available until 3 p.m. for half-day camps

For more than 30 years, Westmont College Athletics has offered day camps for youth who want to practice and play sports in a safe and fun environment. Kids of all ages and skill levels work with college coaches and student-athletes as they learn. Our experienced coaches help youth grow skills and introduce sports to those just beginning.

“We hope to introduce the youngest of our campers to sports as well as meet our more advanced campers where they are at, providing them with instruction for continued growth and development,” says Jeff Azain, co-director and men’s basketball assistant coach.

“Most of our collegiate athletic programs have had at least one Warrior come through our sports camps. The introduction to our programs, combined with a positive experience, has brought student-athletes back to Westmont nearly a decade later to participate in our collegiate programs.”
