There is no good reason for any young athlete to be bored this summer.

Given the wide array of sports-related activities hosted by Stephenville High School and Tarleton State University, along with a number of area high schools, time spent lounging around on the couch can be kept to a minimum.

Whether your rising star feels like making a racket (Lance Drake’s Summer Tennis Training), learning from a living legend (Rita Crockett Volleyball Camp) or getting cheered up (Valerie’s Gym, Texas Twisters, Tiny Texan Cheer Camp), there’s a camp — or two — to fit the bill locally.

Although some pre-registration deadlines have already come and gone, many camps are pleased to sign up walk-ins the day camp begins.

For a listing area camps still to come — ranging from The Fitness Center’s youth conditioning camp to Tarleton State’s basketball and football overnight packages — see page A6.
