The SUNY Cortland Summer Sport Camps are really focused around the sports with the goal of the campers becoming better players. It can be a starting point for a beginner or a chance to prepare each child for the next level of sport, whether it is to play junior varsity, varsity or college athletics. Regardless of the camper’s skills, he/she will be surrounded by staff that will teach them how to get better and have fun while doing it! The best part of sports camps at Cortland are playing in their amazing facilities where their college players literally train and compete for national championships every year! The staff is super friendly and helpful, and every camper always leaves a better player with new friends! When the sun goes down, most of the camps have night time activities in each dorm building to establish that sense of team atmosphere. Each dorm is also equipped with pool tables, TVs, Lounges, and so much more!
It becomes amazing to see the remarkable lessons each camper learns from the SUNY Cortland Sports Camp. The campers always remind and teach the staff to have fun with the sport, no matter how competitive the environment is. It is important that a child grows up with that sense of unity. With a staff ratio of 1:10 for campers over the ages of 10 years old and 1:8 for campers between the ages of 5 – 9 years old, each child gets the attention they need to succeed and have a great time.
SUNY Cortland athletics has a long tradition of national success within Division III athletics. Along with that success we have very experienced head coaches who take the time over the summer to run sport camps for interested youth. Each camp offers athletes an opportunity to participate in their desired sport along with other enthusiastic participants in order to improve their individual skills, increase their knowledge of the game and compete in game play situations nightly. All levels are welcome and desired. It’s a great opportunity to experience our campus and facilities while showcasing your talents!
