To scores of Cleveland-area kids, “Swoosh” is more than just the sweet sound of a basketball cleanly slipping through the net. It’s a summer tradition.

For the eighth year in a row, Swoosh Co-Ed Camps are available this summer to all students entering grades one through nine. “Our philosophy is simple,” says Amy Hertz, whose company oversees the camps, “we offer programs that parents can be confident in knowing their children will learn, grow and have fun in a positive and safe environment.”

Indeed, as a parent of two boys who have attended, I’ve been extremely satisfied with what my children have learned under the tutelage of Swoosh counselors and coaches. They teach many skills and demonstrate qualities that are much more important in terms of being a team player: dedication, sportsmanship, confidence and teamwork.

Visit www.swooshcamps.com for a full schedule and registration or contact Amy Hertz at 216-321-8000. The cost is $180 per session, or only $160 for participants who register on or before May 9.

Stephanie Applegate is a life-long resident of Cleveland Heights and the mother of two boys. She also currently serves on the board of Heights Community Congress.
