Dalhart High coaches prepare for youth camps

With UIL sports over for the 2021-2022 season, Dalhart High’s coaches are looking to the future by both preparing for next season and by getting ready to put on summer camps for local youth to learn the fundamentals of different sports and hopefully come to love those sports enough to want to play once they get into junior high and high school. Most of Dalhart High’s coaches will put on a youth camp for their particular sport at some point during June or July.

The first camp of the year is actually next week, as the Golden Wolves start things off with the “Respect the Game” baseball camp. The camp will be held at Dalhart High’s baseball field, starting Tuesday May 31 and continuing through Thursday June 2 (the camp won’t be held on Monday since that is Memorial Day.)

There will be two different times for different age groups. Those students who were in first gradefifth grade this past year will have camp from 10 a.m. until noon. Those who were in junior high this past year (sixth gradeeighth grade) will have their camp from 1-3 p.m. The cost of the camp will be $35, and that will include a camp shirt. A Google form to register for the camp is available at https://forms. gle/Y1rseu568v9pXqiq9. Those wanting more information can contact Dalhart baseball coach Chris Bird at (580) 651- 0021.

Coach Anthony Catherall and staff will hold the Lady Wolves basketball camp at the high school gym from Monday June 13-Wednesday June 15. Those who will be in seventh grade-ninth grade in the fall will have their camp from 9 a.m. until noon, and those who will be in third grade-sixth grade this fall will have their camp from 1:30-3:30 p.m.

The cost of the Lady Wolves basketball camp is $40. Campers are encouraged to register by Monday June 6 to receive a camp t-shirt. Registration will be available the first day of the camp, but those who wait until that day to register are not guaranteed a shirt. Registration forms are available on the Dalhart Lady Wolves Basketball Facebook page.

The DHS cheerleaders and sponsor Natalie Garcia will hold a Mini-Cheer camp on Monday June 20 and Tuesday June 21 from 10-11 a.m. at the high school gym. This will be for kids from age three (potty-trained) through those who will be in sixth grade in the fall. The price of the camp will be $35, and will include a cheer bow. Campers will also have the chance to order cheerleading uniforms on the first day of camp, but the uniforms must be paid for by June 21 for the order to be placed.

Those who attend the mini-cheer camp will cheer along with the varsity cheerleaders during the second quarter of Dalhart’s home football game against Spearman on Friday September 9. A refresher camp will be held the day before that game, Thursday September 8 from 4:15-5:15 p.m. Registration forms are available at the high school office.

Joe Garcia will hold a pole vaulting camp Monday June 27-Wednesday June 29. The cost is $175. The camp will be held at Memorial Stadium, although there are also activities that can be performed in the junior high gym in case of bad weather. For more information, contact Joe Garcia at (806) 333-2602.

Nicole Guidry will hold both a softball camp and a volleyball camp during July. The softball camp will be Tuesday July 12-Thursday July 14 at the high school’s softball field behind the junior high building.

There will be three different times for different age groups. Those who will be in first-third grade this fall will have their camp from 9-10:30 a.m. The cost for that age group is $30 if paid in advance, or $35 on the first day of the camp. Those players who will be in fourth grade-sixth grade this fall will have their camp from 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. The cost for that age group is $35 in advance and $40 on the first day. Players who will be in seventh grade-ninth grade this fall will have their camp from 1-2:30 p.m. The cost for that age group will be $40 in advance and $45 on the first day. The cost of the camp does include a camp shirt, although those who wait until the first day to register may receive their shirt later. Registration forms are available at the high school office.

The volleyball camp will be the following week, Tuesday July 19-Thursday July 21 at the high school gym. It will also have three different age groups. Players who will be in fourth grade-sixth grade this fall will have their camp from 8:30-10:30 a.m., and the cost will be $40. Players who will be in seventh or eighth grade this fall will have camp from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., and the cost of their camp will be $50. Players who will be freshmen this fall will have camp from 1-3 p.m., and the cost of that camp is $60.

The cost of the camp includes a camp shirt, but those who wait until the first day of camp to register may have to wait for their shirt. A concession stand will also be available during breaks for campers to purchase drinks and snacks (this is true of most of the camps.) Anyone with questions about either softball or volleyball can call Guidry at (806) 886- 3896.

There will also be a basketball camp held by boys’ coach Ruben Lopez from Monday July 25-Wednesday July 28, although details of that camp were not yet available. There may also be a youth football camp, but that has yet to be finalized.
