We had a great opening week of lifting with a tremendous turnout of high school athletes. We are close to capacity, but we can manage some 8th graders that want to attend to learn the fundamentals of lifting and get a glimpse of our lifting expectations. This is completely optional for JH athletes. I do not think we will be able to fit in 7th graders for summer workouts this year. Lifting/Acceleration should take 75 minutes if you need to pick up your athlete.

June 16th from 10:00-4:00 the Fellowship of Christian Athletes Mitchell FCA is sponsoring a Football camp to athletes grades 3rd-12th. A meal will be provided and the cost of camp is $20.00.
