It's a gorgeous day outside in Longview, Texas, and summer is definitely on its way! For many kids, summertime means summer camps, and sports camps are always a popular option. We even host a few on campus at LETU each year! For the kids of Bramlette Elementary here in Longview, they didn't have to wait for the official camp season to begin this year.
This morning, 150 student from the local elementary school visited the LETU campus to participate in a day of sunshine, smiles and sports instruction. Members of LETU Yellow Jacket athletic teams took time out of their busy pre-finals week to conduct free workshops for the kids. Workshops included instruction in basketball, baseball, softball, soccer, volleyball, tennis, and football.
For the Yellow Jacket team members, conducting these workshops meant forgetting schoolwork for a morning. For the kids, it meant an opportunity to participate in a fun summer activity at the end of their own school year. So, we say thanks to our awesome Yellow Jacket athletes for taking time to train up Longview's future athletes. What better way is there to spend a sunny Thursday morning than blessing kids from the local community?
