Shepherd Hill Summer Sports Academy Clinic Philosophy

The philosophy of the Shepherd Hill Summer Sports Academy is to provide a safe environment where children can learn the fundamentals of a variety of sports, as well as work on team building, experience camaraderie, and sharpen academic skills through a variety of non-athletic activities. Attendees participate in traditional athletic and non-athletic activities, and can feel that they have achieved a measure of success. The staff encourages all attendees to participate in all of the drills, games, and associated activities. The staff help to promote a healthy respect for the sport, sportsmanship, and the common values we all hold true: honesty, cooperation, caring for others, friendship, and self-esteem. The staff of the Shepherd Hill Summer Sports Academy is made up primarily of Shepherd Hill coaches, teachers, and student-athletes. The Shepherd Hill Summer Sports Academy clinics intentionally maintain a high staff ratio in order to provide more individualized attention to each child, thus making the clinic experience more rewarding.
