Our Mission
Our goal in creating the
ALCAN Summer Program is offer a summer-long program of quality instruction and opportunity for athletic development.  We aim to expand our influence to develop good nutritional and training habits while providing a full season of activity, cross-training, and skill development.  We aim to make the camp affordable and accessible for all kids.

  •   Daily Strength Training
  •   Daily Speed Training
  •   Daily Team Building Activities
  •   Daily Nutrition Habits Reinforcement
  •   Daily Sport Specific Instruction
  •   Daily Sports Participation
Coaching Staff
Coaching staff includes current and former professional and collegiate athletes, who will provide guidance in Baseball Development.

 
Speed Training:
Our focus during our daily speed training will be to improve speed, agility, and quickness.  We apply age appropriate development strategies identified for athletes and apply these new skills in our sports program over the course of the summer. 
 
Speed training improves speed through greater balance, core stability, strength, and fluidity.  Exercises, drills, and games will be used to train the basics of speed on a daily basis at Ultimate Summer.
 
The importance of Speed Training in the context of athletic growth is that it helps the child develop as a strong, healthy, coordinated individual.  This strong, healthy, coordinated individual will have greater success in sports, at play, and in other lifetime pursuits.  If the child decides to challenge him/herself later as an elite athlete, this speed training provides a strong base for all future sports endeavours.
 
Team ALCAN will divide up into age groups for this part of the program.
 
 
Strength Training
Our focus during daily strength training will be to introduce the child to strength training with the emphasis on proper technique and safety. 
Strength training (not weightlifting) is beneficial for all ages and aims to:

  • improve strength and endurance
  • protect muscles and joints from injury
  • improve performance in sports
  • overall health benefits including: strong bones, boosted metabolism, improved immune system and boost in self esteem
Strength training for this age group utilizes the child's own body weight, along with medicine balls and resistance bands to promote balanced development and growth.  We will also describe the anatomy and physiology of the human body and give suggestions for continued strength training at home.
 
 We aim to build a foundation for strength training for the child to progress through a lifetime of good health and achievement.
 
Team ALCAN will divide up into age groups for this part of the program.
 
 
  SOCCER SKILL DEVELOPMENT
Our focus is to emphasize skill development. This will be a small group activity with focus on instruction in correct form and repetitions for individual skills.  Repetitions with Guidance.

Offensive Skills will focus on ball control in a variety of situations, as welll as striking from a various marks on the field of play.  Once we have worked with the participants we will also have Individual programs established as we work towards the participant goals.
