The start of school also marks the beginning of the fall sports season for all students alike.
What better way for the younger generation to learn sportsmanship and a few skills than by being taught by college athletes in their local community.
The Mesa Community College athletic department partnered with the city of Mesa Youth Sports last week for a five-day, five different sports camp. Athletes from the volleyball, tennis, basketball, track and field and soccer teams instructed elementary and junior high age students on the basic fundamentals and skills of each sport.
“It’s always a pleasure and priviledge to help out in these kinds of ways,” said head women’s soccer coach Drew Guarneri, “one day these youngsters will turn into the next great athlete at the college level.”
The camp took place at the Broadway Recreational Center in downtown Mesa over a five-day period.
