SBGallery2

If you’re a youth athlete that wants to spend time getting better on the field or court before the next season rolls around, heading to one of our summer sports camps is a great way to accomplish that goal!

Your age and skill level shouldn’t stop you, either — here at eCamps, we make sure to provide personalized instruction for all so everyone can experience improvement during their time with us. We talk about how great our summer sports camps are, but what exactly will you learn upon attending one of them?

We’re glad you asked! Here are the skills our coaches focus on for each sport we’ll be offering camps in 2018.

Field Hockey

Whether we’re talking about team and individual drills or speed and agility drills, every aspect of your field hockey game will improve by spending a few days at one of our Revolution camps. This is made possible through a progressive curriculum that allows players to learn through a variety of formats.

There are 11 main skills we touch on throughout camp by way of drills, development stations, and field hockey games. Those skills include the following:

  • Passing and Receiving
  • Dribbling
  • Shooting
  • Ball Control
  • Defensive Tackling
  • Teamwork
  • Positioning
  • 3D Skills
  • Agility
  • Footwork
  • Scanning and Tracking
  • And More!

Lacrosse

We pride ourselves at GameBreaker Lacrosse Camps over the fact that we don’t just line campers up to constantly do drills before calling it a day. Seeing tangible improvement in your game over such a short period of time takes a personalized approach, which we call the GameBreaker Difference.

The 10 specific skills we focus on in all of our lax camps are as follows:

  • Ground Balls

Tennis

At adidas tennis camps, we want all of those in attendance to have the opportunity to take their game to another level, all while doing so in a fun and positive environment. Our coaching staff will hit on multiple parts of the game and get to know you so they can find out what specific areas you’d like to work on at camp.

Our teaching curriculum doesn’t just focus on what’s happening on the court, either. Here’s a look at what you’ll receive at tennis camp this summer:

  • Guest Instructors and Lecturers

  • One-on-One Instruction
