RISD offers summer sports camps for kids

If you are looking for something to keep you busy during the summer months, the Rockdale athletic department has plenty to keep you occupied.

Come join the Tiger staff for four days of fun, competition and learning from June 4-28.

Athletic Director Jeff Miller and his staff are eager to meet the future of the Rockdale athletic program.

Instruction in softball, basketball and volleyball for girls and baseball, basketball and football for boys will be offered for students from third grade to ninth grade.

Camp instructors will be members of the Rockdale coaching staff. The objective of the camp is to provide professional instruction on the fundamental skills necessary for the sports involved.

Campers will need to wear comfortable T-shirts, shorts or sweats and athletic shoes to camp each day.

Cleats are optional for baseball, football and softball camps, but will not be allowed in the gym.

Because of a grant, all camps are free this summer.

Applications can be picked up at the athletic office and for more information, contact Miller at 430-6150 or jmiller @rockda- leisd.net.
