Tennis and swim camps offer your child the chance to not only help build up sports skills, but also gain confidence in knowing fundamentals of movement.
While we all know that eating healthy foods, exercise, posture, etc. is important for health and wellness, did you know that how you start and stop a motion is just as important?
At the Parisi Speed School, a youth-based performance training program housed at the Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club, 5800 Cathedral Oaks Road in Goleta, kids learn exactly how athletic movement can affect their performance in a sport.
According to the Parisi School director Rich Alvarado, it’s all about developing hip and core strength.
“Ninety percent of kids have no range of motion (in that area),” he said.
“In youth sports, coaches aren’t really concerned (with these areas of strength),” he explained. “They’re more worried about if their player is focused.”
Along with not getting enough training in specialized sports, Alvarado also attributes the lack of hip and core strength in kids today with the “awful positions” that kids and teens sit in while they use any technology.
This is the first summer that Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club will be offering summer camps with the Parisi Speed School. The club is offering a half-day Tennis Camp and a full-day Swim and Parisi Speed School Camp.
Swim and Parisi Speed School Camp promises to be a full day of fun for kids. Half of the day will be spent in the pool, and the other half will be spent in Parisi Training.
Parisi Speed School training doesn’t involve simply running. Alvarado assures Noozhawk that any type of athlete will benefit from Parisi Speed School Training.
The Tennis Camp at Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club will also have the Parisi School component available for your child with a full hour with the Parisi School Coaches. Tennis director Jake Nelson promises that kids will come out of the camp feeling “confident because they are learning.”
“We want to help you increase your skill set and abilities,” he said. “Summer is a unique opportunity — kids have more time to put on the court and have no obligations from school. We want to have a good blend of fun and learning.”
Tennis camp will also be supervised by certified Parisi Speed School coaches.
With sports camps rooted in increasing special skills and confidence in all kinds of sports, Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club has a fun summer program lined up!
