The program will run from late June through early July, and will teach students foundational skills for sports along with mindfulness practice to elevate students’ athletic and academic performance. The class will run for four hours a day with five sports over five days. Sports covered include soccer, basketball, volleyball, cross country, and football. Light snacks and water will be provided.

The MASC class will be in partnership with Maroon Village, which emphasizes the cultivation of healthy environments for student-athletes to promote resiliency for academic and athletic success through performance training, yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and breathwork. More information will be announced at a later date.
