Welcome to Exceleration’s Summer Camps!
Please, read the following information VERY carefully as it contains important information about equipment, safety, and coaching contacts.
At Exceleration we emphasize RESPECT, INCLUSION, and COMMUNITY.
We ask that all athletes treat EVERYONE the way they want to be treated, using kind words, voices, and actions toward everyone in the camps.
We ask that athletes be prepared to meet new friends and work in different groups throughout the week.
We ask that all athletes celebrate the STRENGTHS of other athletes, coaches, and leaders.
We ask that all athletes “TRI” their best and be brave when attempting new skills. There will be a lot throughout the week!
We ask that parents re-inforce these values and remind athletes to be kind, caring, and friendly to everyone, so we can all have more FUN!
