Let the Sun Shine! S We’ve ramped up our annual Camps & Clinics guide, and it has us excited for so much more

ometimes everything falls into place. The very week that the days grew longer, and the sunshine and 75-degree weather arrived, we found ourselves compiling our biggest Camps & Clinics Special Edition to date. Last year’s Camps issue set our personal record for most pages at 64. We stayed at 64 pages this year, but still managed to fit in even more camps. In fact, our listings of available camps nearly doubled in size this year. It now includes more than 600 camp offerings throughout the state, although the vast majority are centered in Northern California. So, you can guess what we were up to on those sunny days. But it was worth it. This is the first of our four annual special editions, and it’s got us excited for the next one due out in June. That’s when we’ll be taking our second crack at the Yearbook Spectacular, which is primarily a pictorial look back at the high school sports season. That edition also includes our Spring SportStars of the Year and the unveiling of our second Bay Area 75 countdown. Last year we had a limited number of pages for that Yearbook edition. Thus, we’re excited that with the four special editions built into this new publishing schedule, we can truly expand the scope and fill up some of our most popular issues. The other two special editions slated for 2014 will be our football preview in August and our basketball preview in December. Now if you’re a loyal reader, you may be saying, “Wow, that’s an awesome collection of camps and clinics offerings, but it’s kind of a big time of the year in high school sports. Where’s all the playoff hoops and spring sports coverage?” Good question. We managed to sprinkle a little bit of coverage into this issue, like a photo package from selected North Coast and Sac-Joaquin Section basketball championships and a follow-up on the California Interscholastic Federation State Wrestling Championships. But we don’t want to leave you hanging, so beginning with the CIF Norther Regional basketball finals on March 22, we’ll be attacking things pretty heavily online. If you haven’t experienced our Digital Weekly yet — we’ve produced six so far — you should definitely check the next one out when it releases March 26 at SportStarsOnline.com. We’ll also be putting some other features and video segments up on the website as well. And finally, we won’t make you wait very long for the next print edition. Our April edition will be out in just two weeks (April 3) with plenty of state basketball championship coverage as well as all the spring sports which are well underway. Now, stop wasting your time here. Flip your way to the middle of this edition and start planning how you’re going to spend the next five months of sunny days. ✪

bryant Colfax - Snowboarding - Senior ›› A two-time All-State snowboarder, Bryant won the California Nevada Interscholastic Ski and Snowboard Federation individual snowboard championship on March 6. Sitting in second place after two giant slalom runs the day before, Bryant turned in a fast final slalom run to capture the title. His victory also helped the Falcons earn a second-place team finish in the boys’ team and overall (combined boys and girls) team competitions. In the fall, he was a standout wide receiver and had 11 TDs for a Colfax team that finished 9-3. ›› IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “I knew that I had to push a little harder and I just went for it,” he said of facing a narrow deficit before his final slalom run. “I was hoping to finish in the top five this year after getting a top 10 last year (he finished 7th), but I had a lot of confidence after I finished first in our league.” ›› WHAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW: Bryant is more than just a multi-sport athlete. He played football, snowboarded and played baseball through his junior season, but is running track rather than playing baseball this year in order to help his football training. Bryant will focus on football at Sierra College with an eye on playing at a four-year school.

honorable mention Rachel Tadlock: The Woodland junior softball star had back-toback 2-HR games in wins over Monterey Trail and Rio Linda. She was 7-for-9 with 4 HR and 12 RBI in the two games.

Kyle Yamada: The Del Oro junior lefty pitched a complete game 4-1 victory over Vista del Lago at Raley Field, striking out six. He also contributed a pair of hits and scored two runs.

Patricia Castrence:  The Modesto Christian senior hit clutch 3-pointers in each of the Eagles’ NorCal playoff hoop wins. Her shot with 6.5 seconds left was the game-winner in a 37-35 quarterfinal win at Wilcox-Santa Clara. Beryl Mora Like us on Facebook

Top 5 mlb storylines for 2014 Spring. It totally sprung all over us today. Which would explain the hayfever. But it’s hard to be mad when the birds are chirping, the sun is shining, the air is redolent of fresh-cut grass, and the A’s and Giants are playing split-squad games in the Valley of the Sun. That’s right, baseball is back, baby. Here are our top five story lines surrounding the national pastime entering 2014. 1. The Derek Jeter Farewell Tour — He has been the shortstop, the best hitter, and the captain of the Evil Empire for so long, we don’t quite know how to act thinking about old No. 2 not wearing pinstripes. We will say this, though. The timing is good. Get out before your face covers your entire head, Derek.

2. Expanded Replay — We’ve heard all the arguments. It’s going to make games longer. Fans will lose interest. It erodes the sanctity of the game. Well. You know what erodes the sanctity of the game? When Angel Hernandez adamantly defends a game-changing call he knows he got wrong, just because he is arrogant and stubborn. So bring on the reviews, we say. Here’s a novel way to maintain the sanctity of the game: Get the calls right.

3. Expanded Replay, redux — Is there any way we can have replay AND still have screaming, hollering, dirt-kicking, base-tossing hissy fits from managers who have been wronged by the umps? Because we love listening to baseball announcers try to pronounce “apoplexy,” and watching grown men act like 3-year olds.

Say What? “When I saw (San Ramon Valley’s early) lead, I laughed. We’ve been down this road. All we had to do was turn up our defense.”

Stacey Wescott/Chicago Tribune/MCT/ZUMAPRESS.com

4. (No more) Crash Davis — Another rule change from MLB established a limited no-collision edict on plays at the plate. The Buster Rule, if you will, says that catchers can’t block the plate without the ball, and runners can’t deviate from their path to initiate contact with the catcher. We’re kinda gonna miss those bang-bang BANG plays at the plate, where the mask and the glove and the helmet and — was that a tooth? — all go flying. 5. Whodat and the Whatshisnames? — What are the chances the Oakland A’s can, once again, trot out a bottom-dollar bunch of no-name grinders and somehow pull off another AL West title? We dunno. We do know they’re projected to have the fifthlowest payroll in MLB, and most of their commercials feature Bob Melvin, Curt Young, and Mike Gallego — and they’re all coaches. Sheesh. Even the ad campaign is low-budget. On the bright side, they do have some really snappy new alternate jerseys. Apparently they’re dumping all of their cash into laundry.

Number of basketball teams with a 7 seed or greater to reach the CIF Northern Regional semifinals. Two are 7 seeds (Grant-Sacramento boys and Monte Vista-Danville girls). One is a 9 seed (Sir Francis Drake-San Anselmo boys). One is an 11 seed (Pleasant Grove-Elk Grove girls), and one is a 12 seed (Miramonte-Orinda boys). Miramonte, which actually played No. 9 Drake in the Div. III semifinal on March 18, was the lowest seed in the entire field.

McClymonds saw a number of big deficits early in the season as it was forced to regroup when Jackson took over the program once the previous coach was let go by the Oakland school just seven games into the season.

GAMECHANGe Playoffs can force team from their status quo, and sometimes players are caught in the middle

I started all year for our basketball team and we did pretty well. We made it into the section playoffs and won our first game — and then the coach told me I wouldn’t be starting the next game because he wanted to play a different defense. I didn’t think that was fair at all, and though I still played a lot, we lost. Why would he all of a sudden not start me in our most important game of the year? Was that fair? R.D., San Jose

F

irst, it probably wasn’t fair — but as has been pointed out a couple of times, life isn’t fair. Some people are 6-5 and some are 5-8; some people are quick and strong and others, like me, are slower and weaker. What you have to look at, though, is the program as a whole, not just your own personal feelings. Obviously, you were a pretty good team if you won a section game, and the coach is at least competent, and most likely above average. He knows what he’s doing when he doesn’t start you at that point in the season, and how that’s going to feel for you, so obviously he has his reasons — and I���ll bet they start with

matchups. Though we’re talking basketball, matchups become more and more important in all sports once you get to postseason. Everyone has particular styles of play — in soccer, for example, some teams want to grind out a 1-0 win by packing the defense around the goal and hoping for a breakaway; other teams put their talent up top and look to get three goals a game. In basketball, there are similar choices, but defensively, it’s probably man or zone, so that’s what I’ll talk about. So a team goes through the season, and does pretty well playing, let’s say, a zone. When that team plays an opponent with strong three-point shooters, though, the zone isn’t the ideal defense — but it’s a long season, and a loss here or there isn’t a killer. The coach is trying to get the team to play as well as possible during the entire schedule, not just one game. This means that if your league only has one team that shoots threes really well, then playing the zone all the time will put you near or at the top of the standings and set you up for the playoffs with a good seed.

Score Digital Content: Scan SSM With LAYAR

But in postseason, the equation shifts. Now you’re just playing one game that you have to win, and what if that opponent shoots threes really well? The coach knows that the zone is a bad defense against that team, and has to make a tough decision: Do I dance with the girl I brought to the dance (the zone), or do I give my team a better chance to win by changing things up? Clearly, your coach opted to change things up and catch the other team off guard — but sadly, it didn’t work. (Of course, playing the other defense, with the regular starting lineup, might not have worked either. You just never know.) The person who got caught in the middle of that strategy shift was you, at least in terms of starting, but the playoffs are different, and difficult decisions must be made. At one level, then, no, this wasn’t fair to you; but at another level, the coach felt his decision to shift defenses was better for the team, the program and fans because it gave you a better chance to win, and so to everyone else, it was fair. Even if it turned out to be wrong. ✪ Clay Kallam is an assistant athletic director and girls varsity basketball coach at Bentley High in Lafayette.

norcal’s greatest school mascots

Dream Date:

STAGG Delta Kings

O’Dowd vs. Mater Dei

For fun, here’s a quick look at CalHi’s Top 10 favorite NorCal school mascots of all-time. 1. Vintage Crushers It’s unique to the state and appropriate for the Napa wine region. It’s also one of the best school nicknames in the country. 2. Urban Gorillas The San Francisco school now goes by the more tame Urban Blues. It’s still good and unique, but not as great as the Gorillas.

You’re never supposed to root for anything as a member of the media, but it’s sometimes impossible not to root for certain matchups in CIF state finals that you would just love to see. That was the case in football with De La Salle-Concord vs. St. John Bosco-Bellflower last fall when the various CIF section playoffs began. And that’s the matchup we got in the CIF Open Division state bowl game. For boys basketball, the CIF Open Division final on March 29 at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento would be equally terrific if it could be Bishop O’Dowd-Oakland vs. Mater Dei-Santa Ana. As this is being written, one or both of the teams could lose in a regional playoff game and get eliminated, but that’s doubtful. First, the Dragons and Monarchs already have played this season in the championship game of the Tarkanian Classic in Las Vegas with Mater Dei winning in overtime 63-59. Second, Mater Dei would be trying to complete a historic unbeaten season, the first in its illustrious history. Another historical feat the Monarchs would be shooting for is a fourth straight state title. That would tie the state record set in 2003 by Price-Los Angeles. Third, it would feature one of the top contenders for national player of the year honors, Mater Dei’s Stanley Johnson, along with Bishop O’Dowd’s Ivan Rabb, the No. 1-tranked junior in the nation by some scouting services. Johnson also would be trying to go 4-for-4 in winning CIF state titles in his prep career. Not even Jason Kidd at St. Joseph-Alameda came close to that. Fourth, it would feature two of the most successful programs in state history. When Mater Dei’s Gary McKnight became the state’s winningest coach ever a few years ago, he passed O’Dowd’s Mike Phelps. And while McKnight is on his way to 1,000 career wins, Phelps is still No. 2 on the all-time state list with 843. O’Dowd and Mater Dei have never met in the CIF state finals before because, until the advent of the Open Division two years ago, the Dragons were Division III from 1988 to 2012. There were two years in the 1980s when the two schools could have played, but Mater Dei kept running into Crenshaw-Los Angeles in the Southern California playoffs. In 1981, when the CIF began to stage basketball state finals, O’Dowd claimed the first one with a 70-69 win over Castlemont-Oakland. Mater Dei and the rest of the CIF Southern Section weren’t involved, however, and also skipped the state playoffs in 1985. Since then, Mater Dei has won 10 times against NorCal teams in state finals with the only losses to Palo Alto (2006 with Jeremy Lin), Oak Ridge-El Dorado Hills (2007 with Ryan Anderson), Fremont-Oakland (1999 with Josh Shavies) and St. Joseph-Alameda (1992 with Kidd). O’Dowd, on the other hand, has been snake bit. The Dragons have lost in every CIF state final they’ve played in since that first one, an 0-7 mark that includes two losses in overtime and a one-point loss to Manual Arts-Los Angeles in 1988 that most people sitting courtside thought should have been a one-point win due to a tip-in at the buzzer being disallowed. ✪ Mark Tennis is the co-founder of Cal-Hi Sports, and publisher of CalHiSports.com.

3. Stockton Tarzans This school closed in the 1950s and never should have. What a great tradition it would still have, especially with that name. 4. Hollister Haybalers The school is officially known as San Benito, but when the Haybalers are playing it just sounds better with Hollister. 5. Chester Volcanoes The town of Chester is nestled just to the southeast of Lassen Volcanic National Park. 6. Lincoln Zebras When you have a school with the most popular name (Lincoln), why not choose a unique mascot? 7. St. Rose Rascals The San Francisco all-girls school closed in 1990 and it was where Brian Harrigan started coaching girls hoops. 8. Foresthill Wildfires We love the name, but not sure it works when there really is a bad wildfire burning in the area. 9. Poly Parrots Another closed school, this one from San Francisco.

Gilroy, SJS shine at CIF Wrestling Championships Niko Villarreal knew the feeling. Paul Fox enjoyed it for the first time. In both instances, Gilroy wrestling left its mark on the 2014 California Interscholastic Federation State Wrestling Championships. Villarreal left Bakersfield’s Rabobank Arena with his third state gold while Fox, wrestling just seven pounds heavier than his teammate, claimed his first as the Mustangs led this year’s NorCal contingent with a fourth-place team finish. Here’s what went down in Bakersfield this year, NorCal-style. PARADISE ROAD: Brothers Emilio and Israel Saavedra probably didn’t celebrate their state titles by cruising through Modesto in a ‘58 Chevy Impala, but they did return to the birthplace of American Graffiti with plenty to celebrate. Modesto High’s mat stars took different roads to the finals, with younger brother Israel running off a major decision and three pinfalls to find himself opposite Vacaville’s Gionn Peralta in the 120-pound championship. At 138 pounds, Emilio scored a technical fall in his pigtail match, but after a pinfall in his next bout, the results got closer. He beat Calvary Chapel’s Luke Troy 3-1, then scored a 9-2 decision over St. John Bosco’s Joseph Dominguez. In the semis, he faced off with the No. 2-ranked wrestler at the weight class, Bloomington’s Uzo Owuama, and prevailed in an ultra-tight 5-3 victory. The final round was a different story altogether. Israel scored a takedown with five seconds left to claim a heart-stopping 5-4 win over Peralta. Emilio took the lead earlier in his match against Santiago’s Mike Longo and held on for a 5-4 victory of his own. SJS STYLE: The Saavedras were only two pieces to an

overall impressive showing for the Sac-Joaquin Section. Folsom’s Nick Fiegener (182 pounds) and Vacaville’s Jeramy Sweany (220) also won gold, tying the SJS with the Central Section for most championships won by a section. The total medal count was impressive too, as SJS wrestlers walked away with 17 pieces of individual hardware. COLTS REP NCS: The North Coast Section had a quiet year in Bakersfield this time around, with the section bringing home just eight medals. James Logan led the way, with Jacob Donato placing fourth at 120 pounds, Jacob Macalolooy finishing

seventh at 138 and Clayton Hartwell taking fourth at 195. Other NCS placers included Amador Valley’s Tommy Yozzo (7th, 132), Cardinal Newman’s PJ Klee (2nd, 152), Redwood’s Nathan Morris (6th, 182), Alhambra’s Quentin Wright (7th, 220) and Ukiah’s Pablo Gonzalez (4th, 285). NORTHERN LIGHTS: Don’t forget the Northern Section, which brought three medals back to an always-competitive area for wrestling. Paradise 132-pounder Wyatt Wickoff picked up three pinfalls and a technical fall on his way to a second-place finish. Orland’s Victor Raigoza defeated Saratoga’s Graham Grant 3-0 in the third-place match at 220 pounds while Chico’s John Leal also placed seventh at 160. CLOVIS’ WORLD: As expected, Clovis ran away with the team title, placing eight wrestlers to compile a massive team score of 197.5. Clovis West finished runner-up with 118.5 points and five placers, followed by Poway with 110 points, Gilroy with 107 and Vacaville with 90. WHO’S NEXT: Of the 14 champions crowned this year, only five are projected to return next season to defend their titles after nine seniors claimed gold in 2014. Also on the clock next year will be the city of Bakersfield, which has hosted the last 10 state meets and will host again in 2015. As is normal CIF procedure, the city will have to re-apply in the fall to host for three more years and could face challenges from other cities looking to lure the always-popular event. Here’s our prediction: the Bakersfield Marriott at the Convention Center will be a tough place to get a room in 2016 and beyond. ✪ —SportStars staff

injury prevention: dr. nirav pandya

Motion analysis can help athletes determine their risk of ACL tears, or readiness to return We are inundated on an almost daily basis in the media about professional and collegiate athletes who tear their anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). With social media giving instant access to athletes, the general public has become increasingly knowledgeable about the recovery process from what used to be a career-ending injury. Yet, what is often overlooked in all of this media attention is the larger question of, “How can we prevent these injuries from occurring and/or re-occurring?” Disease prevention (i.e. heart disease, diabetes, etc.) has become one of the main tenets in primary care medicine but we are just beginning to scratch the surface with our young athletes. One of the tools which can be utilized to answer this question is motion and gait analysis which can be performed in a sports performance lab. Not only can this help prevent an athlete from ever going under the knife, but it can also give us a dynamic assessment of when an athlete is ready to return to play. For example, one of the known risk factors for tearing your ACL, particularly in females, is landing with your knee pointed inwards (“knock knee” position). This risk factor can be hard to identify without having someone carefully record your dynamic

SportStars™

March 20, 2014

motion during sporting activity. There is only so much a physician can do in an office visit to assess your risk of a tear and/or your readiness to return to full sport. These new techniques allow us to have hard criteria which can be viewed by the athlete and parent (giving instant visual feedback) to address the risk of injury. Using specialized high-speed cameras, various athletic movements can be recorded for the purposes of injury screening and for determining if an athlete is ready to go back to playing sports after surgery ‘Return to Play Criteria’. The video data can also be integrated with force-plate data to analyze ground reaction forces, which helps to identify if an athlete is using correct body mechanics. The most common movements tested are the drop-jump test, cutting (changing directions), lateral shuffle, triple-leg hop, and deceleration (stopping suddenly). The video is then shared with the athlete and his or her parents to give feedback about any deficiencies such as hip and pelvic stability, core stability and using proper hip strategy. Additionally, we now have the technology to also gather muscle activity data (electromyography) using skin electrodes. The technology allows us to time-sync the electro-myography data with the exact movement the athlete performs a “dangerous” activity such as

Score Digital Content: Scan SSM With LAYAR

cutting. Often we find that the muscle needed to protect the ACL, is either not firing sufficiently or is not firing at the right time. In the above photo, the athlete demonstrates good mechanics. The knee and hip are stable and shoulders and hips are in line with each other. This athlete is creating sufficient angle at her hip to properly handle the impact and torque. She has a low-risk profile for injury. Upon analyzing an athlete, he or she is put through an individualized rigorous performance training program, geared towards breaking “bad habits” and reinforcing good motor skills. This training includes predictable scenarios, as well as unpredictable scenarios, which are closer to the real-world situations. Prior to giving the athlete a clean bill of health, they are re-analyzed to ensure that they meet all the criteria, which will enable an athlete to play confidently and injury free in the future. ✪ Physical therapist Neeraj Baheti also contributed to this column.

bone health: dr. Mo Mortazavi

Malnutrition in female athletes can lead to a series of conditions ending in bone weakness

SkeletaL Stress Female runners and coaches often believe that missed periods and abnormal menses is a normal adaptation to training and exercise. Let me dispel this myth. It is not! Abnormal menses is often the first sign of ‘female athlete triad’, a combination of three interconnected medical conditions that ultimately result from poor energy balance: disordered eating, menstrual dysfunction and poor bone strength. All three components fall on a spectrum from mild to severe and our goal at UC Davis Sports Medicine is to identify and treat this condition while in the mild stages to prevent long-term health problems. Female athlete triad is commonly seen in endurance female athletes who try to keep their body composition lean and light, such as long-distance runners, cyclists, gymnasts and figure skaters. Affected athletes complain of poor performance, and, in more severe cases, seasonending stress fractures. Prior to bone injury, symptoms can be vague and nonspecific such as decreased energy, strength, endurance and cold intolerance; however, abnormal menstrual function should raise concerns in these athletes. This condition usually begins with disordered eating (i.e. eating fewer calories than your body is using). Patients are rarely so severe that they actually have anorexia or bulimia. Energy imbalance, created from disordered eating, leads to menstrual irregularity due to limited energy required for the brain’s hormonal system. The hormonal system that controls ovulation and menstruation shuts down to preserve energy for other functions. Estrogen levels drop and menses occur less frequently. If female athlete triad is undiagnosed and untreated, it can lead to weak bones that are at high risk for stress fractures and future osteoporosis. Our bones depend on normal hormone levels (such as estrogen) as well as a complete and balanced diet (with enough calcium and vitamin D) to develop normally. Those with female athlete triad can develop osteopenia (weak bones) and osteoporosis which can cause young athletic women to have the bone strength of an elderly woman. Since the critical time for bone development is in adolescence, many athletes who are undiagnosed will have irreversible bone weakness for the remainder of their life. Treatment of female athlete triad starts with prevention and an adequate diet. It is critical to understand your minimal caloric needs and make sure that your diet meets them. Consult with a doctor or a sports nutritionist if you are uncertain about your dietary needs. Fad diets and supplements are not recommended and usually unnecessary if one has a complete and diverse diet. Calcium requirements (1000-1300mg/day) and Vitamin D requirements (400-800IU/day) are important to bone strength, and can be met with four to six servings of dairy. Gradually developing aching pain with activity over the bones of the foot, shin, or hip that persist may represent a stress fracture. If you are concerned that you may have a stress fracture, rest from your activity and see a physician. ✪ Dr. Mo Mortazavi is a pediatric sports medicine physician for the UC Davis Children’s Hospital.

shoulder injuries: dr. hunter greene

Sports with a lot of overhead motions can lead to rotator cuff injuries Rotator-cuff injury and inflammation is one of the most common causes of shoulder pain. Sports that involve repetitive overhead motion, such as swimming, tennis, pitching and weightlifting, can cause injuries to the rotator cuff. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles that help to stabilize the shoulder joint. Tendinitis most commonly occurs in the rotator cuff muscles when they are overused in athletic activities.

SYMPTOMS OF ROTATOR CUFF INJURY

TREATING A SORE SHOULDER

Symptoms usually develop over time. Pain can interfere with sleep and make every day tasks difficult. An athlete may complain of pain with overhead tasks such as washing hair, getting dressed or reaching for a seatbelt. Athletes may experience aching pain at rest in the outside of the upper arm.

Early detection is the key to preventing more serious shoulder injuries. In the teenage population, a rotator-cuff injury does not result in tissue damage that requires surgical repair. A physician may recommend removing the athlete from activity and prescribe a treatment plan consisting of rest and physical therapy.

PREVENTING FUTURE INJURIES

Talk to a sports medicine physician about a preventive program involving shoulder strengthening and stretching that may reduce the risk of overuse injuries. Rotator cuff strengthening programs improve dynamic stability and prevent extra stress from damaging the shoulder. ✪

Build recovery into each season, phase, week, workout and set

Whew! You have all been working hard, and building your distances, loads and intensities. Now ti’s time for recovery. Recovery or rest doesn’t mean stop doing everything. It means you continue to workout consistently, and the same number of days you usually do, just with less intensity and load (the amount of stress you put on your muscles/body). After a hard build-up in any season, phase, workout or set — not just after races — you need to rest so all the small muscle fibers you have broken down can heal.   By doing so, your next build-up will be more productive, and help you perform better at your race.  For the fastest recovery after a hard workout, and to have the best performance at your race: 1. Replace fluids. 2. Eat properly. 3. Stretch. 4. Rest. 5. Perform active recovery. 6. Have a massage. 7. Take an ice bath. 8. Get high quality sleep. 9. Avoid over-training. 10. Use visualization, imagery and meditation. ✪ Liz Elliott was an All-American collegiate swimmer and is the head coach at Tri-Valley Triathlon Club.

STIFFEN UP!

Vertical change of direction is just as important as horizontal — which means your ankles need to be ready A few issues ago, I discussed how athletes who aren’t proficient at decelerating, really will have a difficult time changing direction. Even if an athlete is faster than everyone else on the field, the inability to decelerate will eliminate any advantage their speed gives them. Whether it’s a horizontal or vertical change of direction, stiffness is a quality that is vital in order for the athlete to be quick off the ground going up, down and back up again. These movements are just as important as multidirectional change of direction. We’ve all seen it: the basketball player goes up for a lay-up, the ball bounces off the rim, he and his opponent go back up for the rebound. One gets it, one doesn’t. This requires a very strong and stiff ankle so force production goes into the ground and is not lost. Athletes must have control right at foot contact. They must be able to push into the ground, not squoosh! Can

your athletes be stiff and be ready to go to the next play? During play, athlete are not going that low when they land or change direction, So this stiffness must come from the foot, ankle, Achilles and calf very early. Initial contact has to be stiff. If it’s uncontrolled, it’s slow and dangerous. So an athlete must adapt to being stiff at higher angles. There are many programs out there that are great at getting athletes adapted to a specific training program or protocol. But they fail to prepare the athlete to be completely adaptable at tolerating the stress, load and movements demanded by their sport. So the question becomes, how do athletes adapt to the force production and reduction that occurs during play at these higher angles? Well, that’s the subject of my next column, so stay tuned. ✪ Tim Rudd is an IYCA specialist in youth conditioning and owner of Fit2TheCore.

can make all the difference in the world When it comes to strength training, everyone’s main goal is to become stronger. What people usually overlook is the strength of mind needed to accomplish that goal. It takes a strong mind to be able to stick to a proper training regimen through setbacks, lack of sleep, or injuries. It takes a strong mind to change your diet in order to accomplish your goals of gaining mass, losing fat, or enduring a long hard workout. It takes strength of mind to push past limits that your mind has set for your body, because it doesn’t think it’s capable. In other words, without the mind the body will never have the ability to truly gain strength. When trying to gain strength, the most important time for strength of mind is mid-workout. You’ve completed your first few sets, your body is starting to fatigue, and your muscles are starting to burn as the weight increases. It’s now your turn to approach the weight. Sweat drips off the tip of your nose and a stream glides down your forehead from your hairline to your chin. Your brain tells you, ‘You’re too tired. The weight is too heavy. You didn’t rest enough between sets. You’re not going to be able to complete the reps without a spotter. You just cant do it.’ This is the exact moment when strength can or cannot increase. If you’re capable of having the strength of mind to shut it all out and move that weight when the muscles burn, when the weight is heavy, and you inner voice is saying it’s too much, then you will be able to endure the path it takes to achieve the goal and increase your strength. ✪ Anthony Trucks is the owner of Trucks Training facility in Brentwood and covers weight training for SportStars.

“The best camps are the ones where kids come home telling their parents how much fun they had that day, I never came home from a camp telling my dad about the two-hour classroom session on situational hitting, but I’ll never forget Water Balloon Batting Practice!” Ex-Clayton Valley High standout Scott Gorgen, now a pitcher in the St. Louis Cardinals organization

“Once you’ve tried out a camp, go off of what your child says about it. Give it the whole week, as sometimes it takes a bit for the whole experience to unfold. You know your child. At the end of the day, the key question remains “do they want to go back?” There are plenty of experiences out there for them to love, you don’t need to spend your money at the “it was ok” camp.” Bald Eagle Camps founder and co-founder, Bob McFarlane

“Most camps are more about fostering your player’s love for the particular sport, activity or skill than they are about development. ... Did you have fun?” Jason Sekany, co-founder of The Pitching Center in Pleasanton, from his article in our 2011guide

“I can remember learning the “The Boot Scoot” (a duck-under technique) from Lincoln Mcllravy himself, and learning the “Cowboy Ride” from the greatest Oklahoma State Cowboy of all-time, John W. Smith. This was my opportunity to get inspired, motivated and to learn winning wrestling technique from the best.” Braumon Creighton of the Creighton School of Wrestling, from his “Expert” column in 2011 26

Four Questions In our first Camps & Clinics Special in 2011, Martin Soares offered up four questions that every athlete should ask themselves before committing to a camp. 1. Is this a beginner, intermediate or advanced camp? 2. Am I ready to dedicate this time to being there? 3. Am I willing to listen (and be coachable)? 4. What are my expectations?

Five Essentials In the 2013 Camps Guide, we asked long time varsity girls basketball coach, Clay Kallam, to list his five essentials for a basketball camp. Kallam is an instructor with CalStars camps. These five essentials seem to be universal to all sports, and not just basketball. 1. Fundamentals: Boring? Maybe, but everyone (and I mean everyone) can improve their fundamentals. 2. Coach-to-player ratio: The fewer players per coach, the better. Any time there’s more than ten players per coach, it’s not a good situation. 3. Adult coach-to-player coach ratio: Many camps rely on high school players for instruction, and though they may be good players, they’re not necessarily good teachers. 4. No more than 3 hours a day: No one, not even the coaches can concentrate for more than three hours, much less teenagers and below. After two hours really, it’s day care. 5. Plenty of room: The more crowded it is, the noisier it is, and the harder it is to teach — and learn. **And one thing you don’t need: Exposure: Camps are about getting better, not getting seen — players need to be seen after they get better.
