FOR GLENBROOK NORTH STUDENTS ONLY ,
Agility, Speed and Strength Camp
The GBN Athletic Department will be offering a
two-week Agility, Speed and Strength Camp for its student-athletes. The Camp
will follow all training and safety guidelines provided by the IHSA, State of
Illinois and Illinois State Board of Education.
The program will be open to all Glenbrook students enrolled in the
20-21 school year in Grades 9-12 regardless of sport. Each group of 10 or fewer
students will be participating under the direction of one instructor in an
appropriately spaced area in our stadiums. The purpose of the camp is to safely
return athletes from a period of inactivity using a graduated program.
This program is designed by strength and conditioning professionals to help
students prepare for the anticipated return of sport specific camps in July.
The camp will be conducted by coaching staffs under the
supervision of the Athletic Directors. The camp will run from Monday,
June 15th through Thursday, June 25th. Six one-hour time
slots will be available for the students to choose from, and each session will
be limited to 45 athletes. Athletic Trainers will be actively engaged in
monitoring both the participants and coaches.
The following are the guidelines set forth by the IHSA and our
plans and procedures to abide by those guidelines:
