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 10-28.

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

“Our annual sports camps provide an important building block for the championship level teams we are creating here in Rockdale,” Miller said. “We are hoping to prepare the younger kids for the junior high athletic program and the older kids for the high school athletic program.

“The camps are also a great way for the kids to get to know the coaches that will be in charge of their high school sports careers. We look forward to working with your children.”

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:

June 10—football and volleyball.

June 17—baseball and softball.

June 24—boys and girls basketball.

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 @rockdaleisd.net.

RISD Athletics’ Sports Camps are offered as part of iTigers’ Summer Camp, Monday through Thursday from June 10 through June 28 from 8:00 to 9:30.

The iTigers ACE program for after school academic and enrichment activities are from 3:35 to 6 p.m. Monday thru Thursday and every school day morning from 7 to 7:55 a.m.
