Camps highlight busy July as coaches, players share expertise with next generation
August 01, 2019
During what is typically a slow month for a university, July was a whirlwind for the Regis University Athletics Department.
Throughout the month, Regis engaged youth from Denver and beyond through camps in baseball, soccer, basketball and volleyball.
In the first of two July camps, 147 boys ages 8 to 13 years honed their technique during the program’s General Skills Camp. The four days of camp covered the major areas of play such as hitting, fielding, pitching and base-running. Attendees came from Texas, New Mexico, Idaho and Colorado. The All Skills Camp toward the end of the month served ages 6 to 10 and focused on basic instruction.
At its annual Regis Soccer Academy, the Regis soccer program held a Junior Elite Boys & Girls Camp as well as University ID Clinics. The clinics were an intensive skill-evaluation program for high schoolers, and the camp taught skill development to children ages 10 to 13.
Fourth-year head coach Brady Bergeson and his staff led a Nike Complete Skills Camp at the end of the month that helped non-beginner, 8-to-15-year-olds develop across positions. The program also held its all-ability Youth Camps series for kids 5 to 14 years old at city of Denver recreation centers.
Head coach Molly Marrin held her annual camps for girls, which included a two-day High School Elite Camp and one-day Middle School Camp.
Two volleyball camps graced the Regis Fieldhouse in July. A three-day Position Camp developed players from ninth grade to high school graduates, and a four-day Total Player Camp honed the overall skills of kids from seventh grade up to high school graduates.
