Bradstreet Sports’ experienced coaches teach youths the rules and techniques of recreational sports while encouraging healthy habits and positive attitudes. During the clinics, children of similar ages work on improving endurance, flexibility, speed, and strength at Bradstreet’s facilities, which include covered outdoor courts, fields of clipped grass, and an indoor gym. Junior soccer champs also refine kicking abilities, and youths who opt for flag football learn to punt, catch, pass, and endorse sports drinks. Basketball groups practice passing, dribbling, and shooting, and tennis players learn basic strokes and racket skills. Bradstreet Sports equips kids with all of the apparatus necessary for their chosen pastime, such as tennis rackets, basketballs, and an abacus to add points. Soccer clinic participants should bring shin guards.
After a year in law school, Jason Bradstreet felt unsatisfied. A mission trip led him into a period of introspection that caused him to rediscover his passion for playing Division 1 tennis. Channeling this athletic experience into organizing classes that might help children to discover the glee of good-natured competition, Jason founded Bradstreet Camps.
Even as his experienced staff mentors kindergarten and older in soccer, tennis, and martial arts, Jason aims to expand the world of athletes with a range of arts and humanities classes. Lithe dancers lead students in modern jazz and hip-hop dance, sharing facilities with performing- and visual-arts classes taught by actual private-school teachers and opera courses taught by actual phantoms. As pupils rush by clutching martial-arts trophies, instructors aim to imbue their charges with life skills and an appreciation for skills they might not have otherwise discovered.
Programs take place at sites such as Imagine School at Land O' Lakes and the Citrus Park Christian School. At the school, the camp has access to the indoor facilities including classrooms, cafeteria, multipurpose room, outside field, and covered court that shelters children and instructors from the sun and keeps birds from discovering volleyball. Enrichment classes commence in the school's science lab, computer labs, and art studios, with performance classes held in the school's expansive sanctuary.
