UFIT Team Camp training will be an intense 4 day experience of workouts, cheerleading skills and fundamentals. It is important that your cheerleader is properly hydrated at least a week prior to attending camp training. Proper hydration will help avoid dehydration during camp training and less injuries. Please have your athlete checked for Sickle Cell Trait and the disease to better prepare for any athletic activity. Cheerleaders are expected to have all medication handy when engaging in physical activities for the week.
All cheerleaders MUST eat at least 30 minutes prior to instruction time. Failure to do so will result in sitting out from all activities until properly fueled. Cheerleaders are expected to practice healthy nutritional habits in the weeks leading up to camp and throughout the season. Some nutritional tips include but not limited to, reducing fast food consumption, eating more leafy green vegetables, excluding refined carbs and replacing it with more fruit intake.
Team camp is an intense training camp experience to encourage healthy training habits throughout the season.
