Victoria, BC (ISN) – Space is still available to register your child for Spring Break Camp at the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence (PISE), but the camps are filling up.
The camps, to be held March 19 – 23, are open to kids ages 5 – 13 and are designed to work on the overall development of fundamental movement, such as running, catching, kicking and throwing, as outlined in the Canadian Sport For Life model. PISE is based at Camosun College’s Interurban campus.
The camps are divided into three modules: Sporty Kids, ages 5-7; Active Sport, ages 8-10, and Multi-Sport, ages 11-13. Sporty Kids works on the basic ABC’s (Agility, Balance and Coordination), utilizing different sports, games and drills to help develop physical literacy and participation. Active Sport builds on the ABC’s developing movement and sport skills with expert instruction in a range of sports that may include soccer, basketball, volleyball, badminton, and tennis. Multi-Sport will introduce youths to expert training in familiar and new sports such as rugby, soccer, basketball and Ultimate, while also developing power and speed.
“There is still room in the Multi-Sport camp which is a great camp for your pre-teen who loves a number of sports and wants to get introduced to working with a Strength and Conditioning Coach,” says Andrea Pask, Physical Literacy Coordinator.
The cost for Spring Break Camp is $215 for the five sessions and you can register by calling 250-220-2510. The second Pro-D Day Camp is Friday March 5 from 8:30 am – 4:00 pm. For more information on all camps go to: www.piseworld.com.
