|Spring Break Challenger Skillbuilder Camps for ages 5-8 begin in mid-March|
Providing boys and girls ages five to eight opportunities to develop fundamental skills in a number of popular sports is the aim of Challenger Skillbuilder Camps being offered during Spring Break by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
These camps are meant to help players learn and practice core skills and techniques used in each sport, and then allow them to practice, play, and perfect these skills in a number of games and scrimmages with the emphasis on fun!
Sports to be played during the camps include basketball, soccer, boy's baseball, and girl's softball. Participants will develop motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and muscle memory. Children will work within their own age and skill level.
One camp is offered on Monday and Tuesday , March 17 and 18 at the Roeland Park Sports Dome, 4843 Rosewood, Roeland Park, while a Thursday and Friday camp is offered on March 20 and 21 at the Tomahawk Sports Dome, 17501 Midland Drive, Shawnee. Each session begins at 1 p.m. and runs through 4 p.m. on the specified days. Camp cost for two three-hour sessions is $40 for Johnson County residents or $44 for nonresidents.
