We will focus on improving passing, shooting, ball control, dribbling etc. Awards will be given to each participant at the end of the camp as well as special awards for the best efforts and an unstoppABLE Horizon award, given to one athlete in each age group that will be one to "watch". Participants will have the option of attending the afternoon session of baseball or remain in the soccer group. No need for additional registration to switch at midday. Awards are given based on the sport that the camper begins their day with on January 2nd. Lunch for participants is provided. Adults can pay at camp if they want to order one for themselves. The location is a soccer field adjacent to Hammond Stadium in Ft. Myers FL. Don't forget to sign up for golf on the first too if interested!!

About This Organizer

NubAbility Athletics is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization that holds events across the country for limb-different youth ages 4-17 that want to improve their confidence and skill level in their sport of choice or outdoorsman activies such as fishing and archery. Getting kids out of the stands, off the bench and into the game by encouraging, inspiring and instructing Limb Different kids how to compete in organized mainstreamed athletics is what we do. We hold our large cornerstone event, NubAbilty Camp the 3rd weekend in July in DuQuoin Illinois, located 1.5 hours southeast of St. Louis MO. We also hold 1-2 day sport clinics and outdoors clinics at various venues across the nation. Our coaching staff is comprised of over 32 accomplished limb-different athletes, most with college level competitive experience and even a few pros! Our coaches have a variety of limb-differences, both congenital and amputee, upper and lower or both. NubAbility held its first All Sport Summer camp in 2012 with just 19 camper families and 7 coaches. In 2013 we served 49 camper families with 17 coaches. In 2014 we served 72 camper families with 31 coaches. Founded by Morthland College Patriot's baseball pitcher, Sam Kuhnert due to his experience with a limb-different mentor coach growing up, NubAbility's relationship with their young athletes don't end at the events. Young atheletes are paired with coaches who have a similar limb-difference or focus sport, and that coach is available throughout the year to help the young athlete develop into the best athlete they can be, period. Our goal is that our athletes and their teammates see them as a competitive force. Our logic stems from the fact that a one handed pitcher can teach a one handed kid how to defend on the mound better than a two handed coach and so on. One handed shoe tying at NubAbility is a sport. Our coaches hold an annual race to claim victory to the fastest NubTie in the nation. Shoe tying lessons are taught at every one of our events. It's kind of a big deal:) Make sure you check out our Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/nubability and follow us on YouTube, Twitter and Instagram.  Mentorship. It's what we do.
