Area youth participate in National Youth Sports Program at UT

More than 150 youth ages 10-16 from across the Toledo area are participating in the 43rd annual National Youth Sports program at The University of Toledo.

The athletic camp runs through Thursday, June 28 with youth participating in weekday activities such as track, soccer, softball and swimming throughout the afternoons.

The camp begins each day at 10:30 a.m. with a lunch and address from a “hometown hero” before they break into groups for athletic activities until 3:30 p.m., most of which take place at the Intramural and Inter-Collegiate Athletic Fields off the east entrance to Main Campus off Douglas Road.

The National Youth Sports Program provides economically disadvantaged youths the opportunity to participate in fitness, recreation and educational programs. When the program started in 1968, UT was one of the first universities in the country to host it.

In addition to the athletic activities, the youth also participate in educational and health programs, and math and science tutoring, as well as nutrition, personal hygiene, career education, and alcohol, tobacco and other drug seminars. The program also teaches lifetime leisure activities such as fishing, swimming and fitness walking.

The 2012 program kicked off June 11 and concludes Thursday, June 28 with an appreciation banquet.
