COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan
For the protection of all participants, we anticipate there will be COVID-related health and safety guidelines in place when these camps begin. Our goal is to provide you as much information as we can in a timely manner. Because we expect that CDC, State, and University guidelines and recommendations could change between now and June, our initial health and safety plans will be released in mid-to-late May and will be updated as necessary throughout the summer.
You know that when it comes to success, it’s all about teamwork. So what are you waiting for? Grab your mates and coach and head to Michigan Tech this summer for an intensive one-day shootout designed especially for teams and held in the SDC Varsity Gym and Multipurpose Room.
