White Plains, NY (PRWEB) April 22, 2009
Camp Winadu, a premier overnight boys' sports camp in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, is proud to announce that it has become the first officially sanctioned member of the E3Sports Athletic Development and Injury Prevention Program. The E3Sports Performance Training Program is a new approach in athletic development and injury prevention for individuals, students, groups, and teams. E3Sports provides thoroughly researched and tested tools necessary to compete at an individual's highest levels by focusing on efficient movement patterns, quality of work performed and proper recovery methods.
This partnership will enable Camp Winadu to instruct their campers and staff using the E3Sports training methodology. Safety has always been a top priority at Winadu and this brings injury prevention and fitness conditioning at summer camp to a whole new level. As part of its summer camp program, Winadu will offer an "E3Sports Boot Camp" fitness class for all of its campers, as well as, incorporate E3Sports training into all its daily sports activities. E3Sports' sports-specific programs will make smarter, stronger athletes while minimizing risks of traumatic sports injuries and repetitive functional strain on young bodies. The tools taught through this program will give Winadu's campers the skills for a lifetime of exercise and recreational sports.
"We are thrilled to have signed this partnership with E3Sports as we know that they will not only educate our campers in the best exercise and nutrition programs, but also help them to evolve as young adults," commented Camp Winadu Director, Shelley Weiner. "E3Sports brings world-class training experience to our organization and their injury prevention expertise is second to none."
After completing a one-week, intensive training program at the E3Sports main training facility, two of Camp Winadu's key staff members will be the first camp professionals to be certified by E3Sports. As E3Sports Performance Specialists, the counselors will be thoroughly prepared to physically train Winadu campers safely and efficiently.
"Camp Winadu is one of America's best summer sports camps for boys; with the quality instruction of a specialty sports camp combined with the fun and supervision of a traditional overnight summer camp. E3Sports is excited to be able to work with the campers and staff of Camp Winadu," stated E3Sports Co-Founders, Andrei Lloyd, former Winadu camper, and Andrew FitzGerald.
E3Sports Performance Trainers will also conduct a series of programs throughout the summer camp season at Camp Winadu for its staff, kids and parents. The goal of these interactive events is to ensure safety and injury prevention and promote performance training awareness in a fun-filled, action packed environment. Included is a pre-camp orientation during which all counselors will be instructed on proper warm-up and cool down for their athletes. In mid-July, campers will take part in a Performance Training workout consisting of a progressive blend of strength and fitness training. And on Parents Day, E3Sports will host an Interactive Combine for children and their families to showcase participants' athletic abilities.
