Sports camp in Land O'Lakes will focus on speed, agility

The South Pasco Predators have partnered with Jonathon Fuentes, owner of Pasco Health and Fitness in Lutz, to host a four-day speed and agility series called Next Level Sports Performance. It begins today at the Land O'Lakes Recreation Complex. A turnout of more than 50 kids is expected, but registration is open.

"I'm using a lot of USF strength coaches to help run it," Fuentes said. "I want to give it a college feeling for the athletes. We'll be working on flexibility, agility, speed, core training and athletic movements. It should be good for anyone looking to get to the next level."

The camp is open to athletes ages 6 to 15 and costs $45. A portion of the proceeds will go to the South Pasco Predators to help fund their next season of play. The camp will be from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and will run today, June 25, July 9 and July 16.
