With the summer in full swing, Marysville Parks, Culture and Recreation is offering their Summer Sports Camps throughout July and August.
There are three more youth camps left for the season including the Ultimate Sports Track and Field, Ultimate Sports Basketball and Tennis for Youth.
“These camps fall in line with our mission to offer low-cost camps to the kids, provide them with opportunities to develop and have a lot of fun. The low-cost is the biggest part for me because we’ve been very successful in giving everyone in the community a chance to participate in what we offer,” said Marysville City Athletic Director Dave Hall.
The Track and Field Camp, for kids ages 7–15, will be held July 8–11, from 9 a.m. to noon, at Lakewood High School. The cost for each participant will be $95. The camp is run by the Cougars’ award-winning coaching staff including co-head coaches Jeff Sowards and Monica Rooney, as well as Lakewood High School athletes. The goal of the camp is to work on proper techniques across multiple events including running, throwing and jumping. On the final day there will be a track meet where each of the campers can compete against each other.
The Basketball Camp, for ages 7–15, will be held from July 15–18, from 9 a.m. to noon,. at the Cedarcrest Middle School Gym, and will cost $95 per participant. The Snohomish County Basketball franchise, Washington Sabers, will be running the camp.
