LHS to host free athletic camp for future Lobos
Athletic Director John King said all Longview ISD students going in to grades 7-12 are encouraged to participate.
"Students need to wear the proper workout attire of shorts, t-shirt and footwear (cross trainers and cleats are recommended)," he said. "Everything else is taken care of, all free of charge."
LISD's Food Service Department will provide meals after the 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. workouts, and King said the camp offers young athletes an opportunity to develop their skills under the direction of his professional staff.
"We are the only school district in East Texas who employs a full-time strength and conditioning coach," he said. "John Janecek has 25 years in the business at the collegiate and high school level. His results speak for themselves."
King said close attention will be paid to the students' hydration during the program.
"Our students' health and well-being will be top priority at all times," he said. "Our staff will be monitoring throughout camp to ensure our young people are getting plenty of water and not getting too hot."
