School's out, summertime is here, and Longview ISD is hosting various athletic camps to help our young Lobos be the best they can be.

The Lobo Summer Strength & Conditioning program for all LISD students in grades 9th-12th is set for May 31st through July 28 at Lobo Stadium. Grades 7th and 8th will workout from June 13th through July 22nd. 

Workout days are Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, with male athletes working out at 8 a.m. and female athletes at 10 a.m.

Meals will be provided, and there is no cost for the program. Students must provide the proper workout attire of shorts, T-shirt, and footwear (cross-trainers and turf cleats are recommended).

Coach John King said these summer workouts are an excellent way for younger athletes to help develop a sense of being part of the Lobo Athletic program.

"Many of the great Lobo multisport athletes you see on the varsity level—who eventually end up playing collegiately—got their start as younger students going through drills during our summer camps," he said.

Close attention will be paid to the students' hydration during all Lobo athletics camps and programs, Coach King added. 

"Our students' health and well-being will be top priority at all times," he said. "Our coaching staff will be closely monitoring throughout all camps to ensure our young people are getting plenty of water and not getting too hot."
