July Summer Camps with Evolution

It’s been a wonderful year for Evolution with a range of new initiatives that have been successfully introduced. We have been tremendously proud of the way that Evo coaches have been able to support the school this year, which has been an ongoing target of ours. By sending in coaches on a daily basis to support both curricular and extra-curricular activities, DC students have benefitted from specialised coaching across the full spectrum of sports that we offer. Looking forward to next year, this is an area that we hope to develop further with lots of exciting ideas in the pipeline.

The coaches are all now looking forward to a well-deserved rest over the summer, but not before delivering camps and clinics throughout the first 2 weeks of July. Evo camps and clinics are open to all DC students from 3-16 years of age across a number of sports including football, basketball and swimming.
