Costa Mesa, CA, June 16, 2015 – This summer, the Vanguard University athletics teams will hold their annual youth camp for soccer, volleyball, and basketball powered by NBC Camps. The camps will run on various dates throughout June and July.
The Vanguard University Lions basketball team is offering all-star coaching, in partnership with NBC Camps, the largest youth basketball camp in the world, to kids right here in Southern California. This co-ed camp is for ages 5-14, and transcends the typical camp experience. Kids will receive leadership and character development designed to create an impactful week on and off the court. The basketball camp also includes evaluations of youth campers from a recommendation to NBC Camps for elite camps and international tour team opportunities for campers age 12 and up.
Vanguard’s soccer camp will be held on the university’s brand new FIFA Grade II turf field in Costa Mesa. This camp is designed for two types of players—a Youth Camp for ages 10-14, seeking to improve their skills in a challenging and fun environment; and an Elite Camp designed to expose high school players to college level training sessions. Camp staff will include members of Vanguard University’s renowned coaching staff, assisted by current Vanguard soccer players.
Vanguard’s distinguished volleyball coaching staff will lead the Lions’ overall skills camp. This volleyball camp will be split between younger and older age groups, allowing for boys and girls to prepare for their high school seasons, or as potential Vanguard University recruits. This camp will be held at the Vanguard University gym.
“The kids have a great time, which is evident by the continued success of the camps,” said Jeff Melton, sports information contact for Vanguard. “It is a great way to get the community involved in what’s happening at Vanguard University.”
