Community Hospital-Fairfax will hold Summer Speed and Agility Camp for athletes 7th through 12th grade. This is the fourth year for the camp which will be taught by CH-F’s licensed physical therapists and geared toward the individual needs of each athlete. The goal is to build strength and agility and prevent future injuries.
The camp is being offered on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. at the Tarkio Activities Center Gym. It will begin May 29, continuing through July 10 with the week of the 4th of July off. All area athletes are welcome to register online at www.FairfaxMed.com or pick up a registration form at their high school office.
The camp registration fee is $100 and can be paid on the first day of camp. If the registration fee is a barrier, scholarships are available and interested athletes should contact the hospital at 660-686-2317 to determine eligibility. Scholarships are limited.
Amber Zumbrunnen, DPT and Jay Stanton, DPT will be leading the camp. As physical therapists and former athletes, they know the need for sound training and the importance of collaborative efforts between coaches, parents, athletes, therapists and providers to prevent injuries. Both therapists are looking forward to spending the summer building skills and abilities.
