BYU hosts three winter sports camps during holiday break

Brigham Young University is sponsoring three sports camps over the Christmas holidays through Conferences and Workshops.

BYU's baseball, tennis and lacrosse teams will offer the three camps between Dec. 19 and Jan. 3, 2004. The camps are a way for young athletes to practice and hone essentials sports skills through training and personalized attention from collegiate coaches and athletes.

The camps also help the BYU sports programs develop name recognition and generate interest among youth, said Vince Stroud, BYU conferences and workshops program administrator.

Space for all camps is still available. No overnight accommodations are provided as part of the camps.

The winter baseball camp will take place Friday and Saturday, Dec. 19 and 20, at the Smith Fieldhouse annex and the new Indoor Practice Facility.

Head coach and former major league baseball all-star Vance Law and assistant coach Ryan Roberts will run the camp, which will give instruction on hitting, bat speed, timing and coordination.

The camp is open to both male and female youth ages 8 to 18. Tuition is $100.

The BYU winter tennis camp will take place Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 22 and 23, at the BYU indoor tennis courts. Former Wimbledon quarterfinalist and BYU men's tennis head coach Brad Pearce will lead the camp, which will feature personalized instruction, video analysis and a maximum of 16 youth per session on four courts.

The camp is open to girls and boys ages 8 to 18. Tuition is $195.

The BYU winter lacrosse camp will take place Friday and Saturday, Jan. 2 and 3, 2004, in the Smith Fieldhouse annex and the new Indoor Practice Facility.

Jason Lamb, head coach of BYU's No. 4 nationally ranked lacrosse team, will lead camp instruction in passing, dodging, shooting and defending.

The camp is open to boys ages 12 to 18. Tuition is $99.
