Coe's Sports Camp Day with Polk Elementary School Also a Hit!

A post from Kelsey Jipp, women's basketball player and SAAC rep at Coe:

"This year Coe’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) hosted its 4th annual Polk Elementary Sports Camp. Over 30 Coe athletes volunteered to help organize and run the camp and 20 Polk Elementary 3rd-5th grade students participated. Activities included dodgeball, racquetball, dancing, basketball, rock wall climbing and pumpkin painting. The kids are given the opportunity to meet college athletes and discover new interests they may not have had before. At the end of camp, they are provided lunch and awarded certificates and prizes. This is a great way for Coe athletes to get involved in the community and have an impact on younger students.

"The kids from Polk Elementary migrate to this event. Numerous kids are campers for the second and third time, and are so proud when they are recognized as previous campers! I enjoy helping with these sports camps because it is giving kids knowledge about being a student-athlete in college and I enjoy being a positive role model." - Amanda Hanson, Softball '12
