2016 Youth Basketball Camp a huge success!

Posted at 09/18/2016 08:32:09 PM EDT

Aug 1- Aug 4, 2016...68 players working hard on their games at the 5th Annual CHAP Basketball Youth Summer Skills Camp. Thank you to the 21 Coaches who helped make this an amazing camp.

CHAP Running Club

Posted at 07/26/2016 11:44:07 PM EDT

Dear Chariots,

I hope you're all having a great summer break, but also beginning to think about the fall, and our upcoming XC season. Here are a few details to help get you thinking about running again:

  1. CHAP RUNNING CLUB meets on M,W,F at Hawk Island from 4-5:30pm, and T,TH at Lake Lansing North from 4-5:30pm. We are only about 1 month out from the official beginning of XC practices, so now is the time to start running again if you have not started already. Running over the next month on your own, or with our Running Club, will make the practices much easier and less painful when they begin in mid August.

  2. RECOMMENDED MILEAGE is only 10-15 miles/week for those just beginning to run. Think about trying to do 2-3 miles 3 times a week, like M,W,F for starters. Then build up from there to running every day by adding no more than 3-5 miles week. If you start now, within 4 weeks you should be running about 25 miles/week when practice officially begins. However, if you really want to race at your best this fall and improve most dramatically, you should be at or above 25 miles/week already and committed to running through the summer, not to mention doing some extra core and strength work too.

  3. MILEAGE LOGS are a helpful way to keep track of your running, and to let your coach know what you've been doing. This helps provide the accountability we all need for voluntary off-season conditioning. Please email me on Sundays with a brief summary of your previous week's mileage, and especially if you hope or plan to run in the top 10 on our Varsity boys or girls teams. PRIZES/REWARDS: For those who log and report more than 150 miles this summer I will have a special t-shirt to honor you with this fall! In addition, the first meet (St. Johns "Under The Lights" Invitational on Friday, Aug. 19) will only be for those Sr. High team members who run and log over 100 miles before this meet takes place (including the first week of team practices).

  4. OFFICIAL PRACTICES will begin on Wednesday, August 10th at 4pm at Hawk Island Park. Please spread the word to others who may be interested in CHAP XC, and feel free to forward this email to other homeschool families. If you will miss any significant practice time (several days or a week) due to vacation time, or summer camp please be sure to let me know in advance, and be prepared to do the daily workouts on your own as much as possible.

  5. TEAM REGISTRATION now happens entirely through the CHAP website. You can sign up to run with us at chapchariots.org. Just go to the REGISTRATION tab and select Cross Country Fall 2016. This page is not there yet, but should be up and running in the next few days after I contact our CHAP webmaster. There will also be some forms to fill out and sign, which can be mailed to me, or handed in after practices begin.

  6. SEASON SCHEDULES are already up on our Athletic.net web pages. You'll notice a few changes to be aware of, but most of the same meets we've run before are still on the schedule. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.

    Jr. High Schedule is here:  http://www.athletic.net/CrossCountry/School.aspx?SchoolID=42509
    
    Sr. High Schedule is here:  http://www.athletic.net/CrossCountry/School.aspx?SchoolID=42508  
    
  7. HPA CONFLICTS are only possible with our two Friday meets, the MSU Spartan Invite on Sept. 16th, and the Alma College Scottie Classic on Oct. 21. For these two meets you may need to request an early dismissal from HPA practice depending on the rehearsal schedule and the actual meet schedule. Please don't forget to include these dates on your HPA Audition Registration forms.

  8. OFF SEASON XC STRENGTH & CONDITIONING WORKOUTS are also being offered by Mr. Schaub at The Workout Studio on Dunkle Road (near Trinity Church). These 1 hour workouts are optional and he can only accommodate about 15 kids at a time. The two weekly workouts offered are on Mondays at 2:00pm and Fridays at 12:00pm. This is a great way to gain some extra strength and flexibility before our season begins, and I highly recommend this... especially for our High School Varsity level runners.

  9. CHAP CROSS CAMP will be happening again after the Laingsburg Meet for any & all Sr. High Team members. Mark your calendar now and plan to join us for 2 nights of tenting, and 2 full days of team bonding, hard work and fun. Dates are Thursday, August 25 - Saturday, August 27 at the Shoecrew's home in Haslett.

  10. REMOVAL FROM THIS MAILING LIST is your choice at any time. Just let me know if you've decided CHAP XC is no longer for you or your family, so you won't pestered with all my emails for the next three months.

Blessings to all of you and your families,

COACH SHOE CHAP XC

FCA Sports Camp

Posted at 06/30/2016 11:02:12 PM EDT

For those of you looking for an overnight camp experience, this is a great opportunity led by a great organization.

Dan Carr is a volunteer at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp each July in Albion. FCA has been in existence since the 1950's and has been doing sports camps all over the country and the the world ever since. This is his 20th year with FCA Albion camp. It's a phenomenal week. This year, camp runs from July 18-22. It's a overnight camp taking place at Albion College. Last year, the Saltsman brothers attended camp. I would love to have some additional CHAP athletes get involved.

Here is a link to a video about our camp:

Click here for a short video about the camp
Click here for a Flyer

The camp is staffed by volunteer coaches and counselors. It is open to athletes entering grades 7-12. As you can see in the video, there are several sports going on during our camp. Each student that enrolls chooses the one sport in which he/she would like to participate. I direct the boys' basketball program.

The cost is $395. Sometimes there is scholarship money available to help bring the cost down to make it affordable for families wishing to send a student. If finances is the only thing keeping an athlete from attending, I will do all that I can to try to find a way to get that young man or young woman into camp.

Please let me know if you know of any basketball players who might be interested in this powerful camp experience.

God bless you!

Kirk Cousins Football Camp

Posted at 03/31/2016 07:46:04 PM EDT

Each year I have the privilege to run the Kirk Cousins Camp on Hope's campus. We are trying to get more students involved from the Lansing area and I was hoping you might be able to share the attached flyer at Lansing Christian and maybe other schools. It is an awesome camp and many participants attend who do not play football. Kirk is present the entire two days and does a great job of engaging with campers. If you know of any other people I could connect with I would be grateful. Thanks and have a great day.

Track & Field Season is Starting

Posted at 03/11/2016 08:40:19 AM EST

Looks like the warm weather has arrived just in time for us! This is your official reminder/encouragement to join us NEXT WEEK MONDAY for the official kickoff of our 2016 CHAP Track & Field Season!

Unlike the last 2 years, due to the warmer weather we will not be meeting to practice at the Westside YMCA this season. Instead, we'll start practices next Monday, at 4pm, at the Holt Middle School Track. As always, we practice every day from 4-6pm, but the minimum expectation for team participation is 3 practices/week. If you have a standing conflict with practice on any particular day, please email once (not every week) to let me know. Otherwise, practice conflicts/absences should be handled when they arise, but advance notice is always helpful to the coaches whenever possible (and especially with meets!). Please dress appropriately and plan for a few chilly days! Old man winter is not quite dead yet... just mostly dead.

I'm quite sure my email list is not exhaustive and complete, so feel free to pass this along to anyone else who may be interested in joining us and is not presently on the mailing list. If kids want to try this out before they decide, team registrations should be completed by the end of March. So the first few weeks could serve as a trial period for those unsure about joining us. The returning Sr. High Team Members will have only one indoor meet this season, at MSU on Wed. March 30th! The rest of our Jr. and Sr. High Meet schedule does not really kick in until late April (after HPA!)

For registration, you can go to the website www.chapchariots.org any time before the end of March. Payments can be made online, or checks will be collected at practices by Wendi Kribs, who will be helping us with team finances and uniforms.

As always, you can check our season schedule and meet results on our athletic.net webpages. The Sr. High page is here The Jr. High page is here

Unfortunately, 6th graders are not allowed to compete in most of our meets, though that will be changing next year. A rules change will take effect in the 2016-17 school year allowing 6th graders to race with 7th-8th graders in both Cross Country and Track. So for this season, if there are 5th-6th grade students who want to work out with the team and get a preview of what Track & Field is all about, we welcome them to join us.

I've missed all of you over the long winter... though it's been great seeing many of you at our Winter Running Club workouts! Great work by all who stayed in shape over the winter... that will make the first few weeks of practice a lot less painful for you!!

Hoping to see you next Monday!
