Augusta High School’s football team has two camps and its offseason strength and conditioning program set.
The first camp will be for both freshman and varsity Augusta athletes. The camp starts Tuesday, May 28 and goes through Saturday, June 1. Times are 7 to 10 a.m. each morning. Cost for the camp is $30.
The 10th, 11th and 12th graders are eligible to go to the Hutchinson Community College camp, which will be from Sunday, June 2 to Tuesday, June 4. At Hutch, the Orioles will be able to compete against players from other teams in a state-approved event that will allow for useage of helmets and shoulder pads.
The Orioles will stay at Hutchinson Community College for two nights.
“This is a great team building experience,” AHS coach Roger Robben said, “and we gain valuable reps for our offense and defense.”
After the camps, the Oriole summer speed and strength program will begin, starting June 10 for all classes. Times are 6 to 8:30 a.m. every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday for the early session, then continue from 8:30 to 10 a.m. for the second session.
Schedule for Wednesday will be 7 to 8:30 for the early session. No second session will be on Wednesdays, but there will be 7-on-7 passing drills from 9 to 11 a.m. for six straight weeks from Wednesday, June 12 to July 17.
This schedule will go through the second week of August (Aug. 12-15), with a week off from Aug. 5 to Aug. 8. The early-morning session is just for football players, while the second session is for all AHS boys and girls students.
The middle school summer speed and strength program will be after the high school sessions, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
The grade school sessions will be after the middle schoolers, from 11 to noon on the same days.
There will be no sessions for any level for Thursday, July 4. Cost for any athlete to participate in the summer speed and strength program is $10.
