Someone once said “Without struggle there is no progress.” Here at The Rock Wrestling Camp our philosophy is simple, we want all campers to come in with an open and POSITIVE mindset and look forward to getting better everyday.
All campers receive instruction on technical and/or tactical topics from Limestone College coaches and players.
There topics are then reinforced during small sided games and age appropriate matches.
“We’d been assuming we would start off small, but turnout has been beyond our wildest expectations,” says Melton.
On the first day signup for classes were offered, they filled up in three hours, and in its first year, the gym will have seven teams competing.The co-founders of Cheer Athletics eye the wide expanse of blue mat and white-and-blue Panthers in front of them as the speakers thunder the lyrics, “We don’t know how to fail—Small, Medium, or Large, we’re tougher than nails and we’re gonna leave the other cats chasing their tails.” The lyrics are no empty boast: Cheer Athletics is arguably one of the most successful all-star programs in the nation.To date, the program boasts 33 Worlds medals (14 more than the next winningest team) and more Worlds championship titles than any other program—not to mention a long list of resident “cheerlebrities” and illustrious alumni (such as Justin Carrier and Matt Parkey). When Jody Melton and Angela Rogers formed Cheer Athletics in North Dallas almost 20 years ago, they were just a couple of coaches with just a few kids practicing on the greenish-brown grass of a city park.Name: JB Clarke Lacrosse Camp at Limestone College Dates: June 17 - June 19th Offered for: Boys, 4th to 12th grade Cost: 5 overnight, 0 commuter Contact: J.
