July 13-17- Challenger Basketball Camp

Basketball Camp is ON and is right around the corner!

When is Basketball Camp?  

JULY 13-17

The number of athletes allowed to be in the gym will be limited. Camps will run in 2-hour sessions throughout the day with a maximum of 12 students per session. Times will be determined based on the number of camps needed. The plan is to have elementary in the morning & Middle School/9th Grade midday or late afternoon.

Who is invited to camp this year? Students entering 4th-9th grade. This camp will include, but is not limited to ALCS students.

What will the athletes be doing in camp this year? 

The camp will focus mainly on offensive skill development. Players will improve their ball-handling and dribbling, but the main emphasis will be on shooting.  

Similar to last year, players will do individual competitive contests every day in camp. Scores are recorded so that awards and prizes can be given out at the end of the week. We are committed to creating a positive Christ-centered environment and making camp as fun and engaging as possible this year!

Who is the instructor for the Basketball Skills Camp? 

Two coaches will be in the gym for each session. You will be assigned to either Coach Mike Thies, Coach Josh Vaughn, Coach Rick Zierath, or Coach Barb Schmiesing.

How do I register? 

 Registration is closed

When is the deadline to register?  

June 26

How much does camp cost? 

$50 will cover the registration and a camp t-shirt.

How do I pay? 

There are two options:

  1. The first week of July you will be sent a payment link to the email address that was filled in on the registration.
  2. Your athlete can bring cash or check (made payable to “ALCS”) to the first day of camp.

What about concerns over COVID 19?

While we aren’t sure about what restrictions will be in place in mid-July, we are preparing as if Dane County will still be in Phase 1 or Phase 2 of Forward Dane, and the county has put out specific guidelines for youth sports that we will be following.

We are planning on a maximum of 12 athletes and 2 coaches at a time in the gymnasium. Players will be given a clean and disinfected basketball upon their arrival each day at camp to use for that day. At this point, there will be no sharing of basketballs or other equipment. All activities will be performed with social distancing guidelines in place, no more than 2 students will be assigned per hoop, and regular breaks will be planned for hand washing/hand-sanitizing.

What should I bring to camp?

Bring a pair of athletic shoes, a labeled water bottle, and the registration fee if you choose not to pay online.

As we all know, the COVID 19 situation is fluid. There may be more or less restrictions than we are currently planning for. We will be sure to keep you all informed of any changing guidelines that could impact camp.

July 20-24-Challenger Volleyball Camp

Volleyball camp is coming up fast, & there is new information we want to share with you!

Please understand that the sports regulations are changing daily. We are keeping up to date on everything and will abide by the rules the WIAA has issued.  We aren't sure what the restrictions will be at the end of July. We are preparing for what is allowed now and will keep you posted.

When?

Volleyball camp is July 20-24.  ** Times may vary depending on the number of campers we have. **

With everything going on, the maximum number of athletes allowed to be in the gym is 12. Depending on the number of campers, we may have to split into multiple sessions. Since we don’t know the exact number of sessions we will need to offer, specific times of camp will be forthcoming. Currently, the plan is to have high school in the morning and elementary/middle school will be midday or late afternoon.

Who is invited to camp this year? 

All boys and girls entering 4th-12th grade. This camp will include but is not limited to ALCS students.

What about COVID-19? 

We are planning on a maximum of 12 athletes and 2 coaches at a time in the gymnasium. Volleyballs will be disinfected before arrival each day at camp. We have recently learned that "playing catch" is allowed, so we will be able to do multi-player drills.  All activities will be performed with social distancing guidelines in place. Regular breaks will be planned for hand washing/hand-sanitizing.  All equipment will be sanitized daily.

What should I bring to camp? 

Bring a pair of athletic shoes, knee pads, a towel, (camp will be very cardio/agility heavy this year) a labeled water bottle, and the registration fee if you choose not to pay online.
