"Cross-training is athletic training in sports other than the athlete's usual sport. The goal is improving overall performance. It takes advantage of the particular effectiveness of one training method to negate the shortcomings of another.”

In other words, Rockbridge Academy’s Cross-training Camp is a little of this and a little of that. It is also a great place for your young athlete, or athlete-to-be, to test and see what they like. If your child already has a favorite sport, this camp is an opportunity to try something different--a literal change of pace, perhaps, or a chance to build new and different skills. We will play a little soccer; throw some footballs; work on developing agility, strength and endurance; and, generally, throw, catch, run, jump, and explore the abundant and varied world of athletic endeavor.

Students have the option of coming for lunch before this course (student must bring own lunch).  Stay all day by signing up for the Science Wonder: Exploring the Great Outdoors course in the morning.
