| Sports, academics at Salesian High
Salesian High School in Richmond is offering summer school and summer camps to address the needs of chemistry-challenged students and those who want to sharpen their free throw skills.
The summer school program will be offered from June 24 to July 26. The program is directed toward high school students and eighth Graders who are about to go to high school. Courses, which are open to all high school students — not just those from Salesian — are scheduled to be held from 8:15-10:30 a.m. or 10:45 a.m.-1 p.m. in such subjects as biology, chemistry, accelerated Spanish, SAT prep course, English I and II, advanced study skills strategy and more. There will be a two day break for the Fourth of July. The cost for one class is $400 and two classes is $650.
Meanwhile the Richmond school will be offering a variety of its so-called Red and Black Sports Camps for students from grades four to eight. The goal of the mostly co-ed sports camps is to teach the games of basketball, tennis and volleyball in a "supportive and enjoyable environment," according to information on the school's website, www.salesian.com.
The basketball camp will focus on individual fundamentals and team play. Students will be introduced to offensive and defensive drills. Free throw and hot shot competitions will be organized. There will be three sessions: June 24-28, July 8-12 and July 15-19.
In the tennis camp, students will be taught footwork, proper grips, volleys and serve and other fundamentals of tennis. The tennis session will be held Aug. 5-9.
The volleyball camps will consist of several stations and drills such as serving, passing, blocking, and setting. Throughout the week, fun relays will be held and a player evaluation of appropriate team position based on ability. A tournament will occur on the last day of camp. This camp will be held July 22-26.
This year a basketball camp will be offered for girls only, said Dan Hutson, director of marketing and communications at Salesian. "We've never done that before," he said.
All of the camps cost $100 per week and include a camp T-shirt.
