STARS (Students Together with Athletes Reaching for Success)
STARS (Students Together with Athletes Reaching for Success) event was hosted yesterday by Elizabeth Forward. It was the 7th annual Camp of Champions event that included 13 schools, 134 athletes, 43 cheerleaders, and two members of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wash High participated with 11 Life Skills students and 4 Prexie Pals from our Partners PE class.
The purpose of the Champions Football Camp is to make a positive impact on youth with disabilities through teaching football skills and emphasizing the importance of exercise in leading a healthy, productive lifestyle. Upon arrival, students will be divided into pre-determined teams. Each team had the opportunity to master their football skills in 10 different drill stations. Once the team made it through all 10-drill stations, they put their skills together for the final culminating Team Touchdown Station. Coaches were assigned to each drill station to teach the individual skills, as well as Elizabeth Forward partners and cheerleaders to act as mentors throughout the day.
