Camp

5th Annual Cen-Tex Camp and Combine

350 campers filled Leo Buckley Stadium, July 11th and 12th, to participate in the Accumulative Advantage Foundation’s 5th Annual Football and Cheer-leading Camp. Kids had the opportunity to learn from over 15 local, NFL Players and Pro Cheerleaders! With so much support from volunteers, NFL PLAY 60, and some local companies, campers were able to enjoy fun activities while taking away life lessons, which go far beyond athletic competition. Kid’s were challenged to be disciplined, work hard, including cleaning up after themselves. “Killeen Ball” a game of football where every kid gets the chance to play QB and catch the ball was played, campers watched and supported the cheerleaders during their performances, ice cream and barbeque meals were provided to campers, and children got one-on-one time with our professional athletes. Our citizenship award was given away to 32 campers including 6 fastest man trophies.

This year a heart on our camps logo displayed the name: Donna. Donna helped build our foundation and had a sincere passion for the kids of Killeen. In 2013 Donna Passed away.

Donna Fischbach, you are forever in our thoughts and hearts, we celebrate and our reminded of you every time a child smiles at our camp. We are forever in debt to you, your vision lives on, rest in peace. Thank you for helping us evolve the camp to where it is today.

2013 Football/Cheer Camp

2013 Central Texas Football Camp/Combine from Accumulative Advantage on Vimeo.

This year we have split age groups of kids to have a more curriculum specific focus. Based off of our research, coaches have studied, we’ve decided to challenge our older kids, and with a different set of drills and give the younger kids a more slowed down focus. Fundamentals, teamwork, and maximum effort is what we intend to teach. By focusing on getting better, you will have an awesome experience and work with NFL Players, originally from this area.

Cheerleaders will have a more focused curriculum as well. Combining knowledge from our former NFL cheerleaders!

We are working hard to provide all groups with free items (gifts) with the help of the Central Texas Community.  Please spread the word and sign up ASAP to ensure your position. There will be no onsite registrations!

Preperaing for Camps (Hydration)

HYDRATION

As camps begin to roll around it is important
to know and understand the role of hydration!
Texas Heat is noting to play with!
Staying hydrated is vital to keeping your body temperature and electrolyte level balanced. When dehydrated, you can become fatigued, experience headaches, nausea, dizziness, heat illness and heat stroke.  Pouring Water
How much water should you drink?

8 glasses of water a day is no longer true. Instead, think about how much you weigh and divide that number in half. That’s how many ounces of water you should drink per day. For instance, a person who is 200 pounds, should drink 100 oz. of water per day to be adequately hydrated. (That’s 12.5 glasses of water!) Athlete’s with a high level of muscle mass should drink even more, about two-thirds of their body weight in ounces per day.

Are you dehydrated?

The easiest way to tell if your hydrated, or not, is to look at the color of your urine. The clearer it is, the more hydrated you are. If your urine is brown or deep yellow, you need to drink more water, immediately.

Should you drink water while you exercise? And how do you prevent that sloshing feeling inside your stomach?

Yes, you should drink about 8 oz. every 15 minutes while exercising. If you drink smaller amounts (say 4 oz. at a time), you’ll keep from getting that uncomfortable sloshing feeling, which often occurs when we get too thirsty and drink too much water at a time. If you quit sweating during a workout, that is indication you need more water. Although water can give you a bloating feeling, it is important to eat after working out as well!

Water vs. sports drinks-which is better?

Sports drinks contain extra sugar and calories that can benefit a real endurance athlete (someone who is exercising for 4 hours or more) or someone in an extremely hot environment. Otherwise, water is always a better choice both physically and economically.For our camps, Gatorade and water in a 50/50 consumption rate is optimal.

Bottled water-is it better for you?

Some bottled waters come from springs and some from metropolitan sources. It comes down to an individual’s choice, which you prefer or whether you’d rather drink tap water. Just be sure to stay hydrated no matter which type of water you choose to drink.

Please make sure your child is prepared, physically which improves mental functuality, including awareness.Being dehydrated can mess with the mind of an athlete and allow an individual to lose focus. Dehydration can cause an athlete to lose 10% of maximum body strength.

Stay hydrated my friends.
