Summer athletic camps remaining — July & August



The balance of summer camps for 2012 are getting fewer and further between, but there is yet some variety left.

Aside from the football camp offerings  in Weatherford, Aledo and Brock, tennis classes are still available through the Weatherford ISD as well as Brock.

Springtown's Elite volleyball camp begins the last week in July, and Coach Chance Westmoreland will be conducting the Lady Eagles basketball camp a week from Monday.

Walkups are still welcomed by the camps, but their are sometimes advantages to pre-register campers.
