Youth Fitness and Football Camp
(Sponsored by Shawnee Mission South Football and FCCJC)
Camp Features: Students will develop by giving them a good base of fundamentals in Speed and Strength. The weight room will revolve around the philosophy that students will follow a specified workout with the total body being developed. The workout will be geared for speed in the athlete involved in any sport. The safety matters: spotting, proper lifting and running techniques, as well as proper training structure are covered with every student that walks through the door. Range of Motion will be critical.
Because of the length of the camp the athlete will be more concerned with form and safety as opposed to strength gains during this camp. The sets and repetitions will depend on the age and experience of the student. The younger, less experienced lifter will be on a high rep low weight program where as the older, more experienced lifter will work on a pyramid workout going from high reps/low weight to low reps/ higher weight.
Students will be involved in football development as well. Fundamentals will be the focus of the time in camp. We will work on stance and technique for a variety of football positions including offense, defense, and special teams.

The SM South Raiders won a very closely contested game over BV North 21-19. The weather conditions made the game seem very sloppily played, but the Raiders prevailed in the end. SM South was minus several starters due to injury and illness and several younger members of the team filled in valiantly. The Raiders take on Olathe East on Friday, October 26th for a spot in the Kansas 6A Playoffs.
SM South moved their record to 3-1 on the season with a 21-17 victory over SMNW. Next up are the SM West Vikings who are also 3-1.
The Raiders were led by running back Gabe Guild who carried the ball 44 times for 301 yards and 3 touchdowns!
