Sports briefs: UCD softball camp scheduled for next month

By
From page B8 | December 12, 2012 |

The UC Davis softball team will host a College ID Winter Camp for girls in grades 8-11 on Saturday, Jan. 19. The event will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at La Rue Field.

Directed by Aggie head coach Karen Yoder and assistants Danielle Stines and Vicky Rios, the camp is an opportunity for athletes to display their talents and receive individualized feedback and instruction on all aspects of their game.

For more information or to register, visit www.ucdavissportscamps.com/softball.

Youth track and field

The Davis Community Track and Field Club is launching a new program that targets junior high school students interested in the sport.

Beginning Jan. 7, students in seventh and eighth grades are invited to participate in a six-week conditioning program that will prepare them for a healthy and successful spring season.

“We decided to offer this program because so many parents came to us and said they needed something to help prepare their kids for participating safely in spring sports,” said former Davis High and UCD runner Drew Peterson, who coaches the program. “Too many kids get injured or discouraged because they leap into a competitive season without conditioning.”

Athletes will do conditioning to develop strength and agility, learn to safely warm up and warm down and be supported to participate in two optional all-comer meets. For more information and to register, call coach Petersen at 530-210-7049.

Spring lacrosse

Registration for all Davis Lacrosse Association spring teams is now open at www.davislax.org.

In the sport’s primary season, the DLA will have teams for boys and girls in multiple age groups. Practices start by early February and games will be played from March through May.

Registration costs $275 to $400 per player, with scholarship assistance available, players must obtain their own equipment and each athlete must be a member of U.S. Lacrosse for a $25 annual fee.

DHS volleyball

Though neither team is in season during the winter, Davis High boys and girls volleyball coach Julie Crawford has events planned for all of her Blue Devil netters.

For prospective DHS boys team members, conditioning and open gym time start in January leading up to tryouts, which begin Feb. 4.

Players must have physical exams and concussion screening completed prior to tryouts.

For girls in grades 8-12 interested in playing Devil volleyball, an offseason training program begins Jan. 8 at the Fitness Garage, 1403 Fifth St., Suite G.

The program meets Tuesday and Thursdays and players can come from 3 to 4 p.m. or 4 to 5 p.m.

For more information, contact Crawford at jcrawford@djusd.net.

Little League

Davis Little League registration is now open for the spring season. Little League is open to boys and girls ages 4-14 (based on player’s age as of April 30, 2013).

DLL has levels from Tee-ball to Juniors and serves nearly 1,000 Davis players each season. Register at http://davislittleleague.org/index.php.

Costs are $100 for Tee-ball; $155 for Farm ball, AA, AA and Majors; and $250 for Juniors. Late fees apply on and after Jan. 1.
