Dedicated to turning youth from drugs and violence, HYPE designs its athletic camps to sharpen kids' sports skills while teaching dedication to practice and respect for the body. With several years of diamond-top experience, the coaches at HYPE's baseball camp lead a week-long smorgasbord of skill-mastery, from batting and fielding to rounding the 19 bases in the correct order. Aimed at sharpening athletic skills for any sport, the speed and agility camp strengthens muscles, increases the speed of sprints, and helps develop flexibility with an arsenal of exercises, including plyometrics work, core-strength training, and stability-and-balance practice.
During football camp, kids practice contact-free field-top skills before absorbing motivational talks and real-world advice from University of Michigan and Michigan State players and coaches. Basketball camp teaches roundball's most essential skills, from dribbling and passing to growing at least seven feet tall. All camps don sporters in T-shirts and infuse core-strengthening fitness with the HYPE core values, which consists of providing aspiring athletes with respectful mentors and a positive environment.
