Parents who are looking for an opportunity for their children (First through sixth grade) to have some early summer fun — developing their sporting skills while learning character-building lessons — Life Community Church (LCC) has got you covered.
The Ada-based church is hosting MEGA Sports Camp, Breaking Free, a free, community outreach program with sporting activities that include soccer, basketball, flag football and cheerleading, June 6-8 from 6-8:30 p.m. These evening sports activities will include coaching, practice drills and games in addition to character-building exercises, videos and group interaction. First grade through sixth grade children at all skill levels are invited to attend. All events and activities will take place on the grounds of Life Community Church at 330 East 14th Street.
The event is based on the national MEGA Sports Camp program, which has been launched in cities throughout the U.S., according to LCC Children’s Pastor Jeanelle Reese, who is also the coordinator for the LCC event.
Volunteers from LCC and members of community will staff the event and there will be a first aid station on site each evening during the three days of the MEGA Sports Camp. Each sporting event will include a volunteer staff led by four designated LCC sports team coaches, including Jill Clark, cheerleading coach; Curtis Reese, flag football coach; Katelynn McLoud, soccer coach; and Jeremy Moore, basketball coach.
“As part of our community outreach, we, at Life Community Church want to give children in our area an opportunity to learn more about sports, hone their skills, have fun and of equal importance, to learn how sports can provide lessons in personal development and spiritual growth,” said LCC Senior Pastor Mickey Keith.
Pre-registration for the LCC Mega Sports Camp continues through May 31 and to ensure a place in this year’s event Reese encourages parents to register for the camp early. The registration form can be picked up or requested from LCC.
