(Joplin, MO) – Registration is open for the Lifetime Sports Academy 2021, to be held on June 7-10 at Missouri Southern State University

Children of all abilities ages 7 through 12 are invited to attend the event, which is sponsored by the Kinesiology Department. The goal is to teach skills and promote the appreciation of activities that can be played for fun, health, and fitness throughout life. Activities include golf, bowling, Frisbee, racquet sports, martial arts, archery, canoeing, and more.

“The Kinesiology Department is excited to return to an in-person Lifetime Sports Academy for our twenty-fifth year,” said Dr. Sheri Beeler, department chair and co-director of this year’s event. “The staff for this event includes our Kinesiology faculty, students majoring in physical education or health promotion and wellness, or those seeking a Coaching certificate as well as our partners at the Missouri Department of Conservation.”

The cost is $100 per child, which will cover four days of instruction and a T-shirt. Missouri Southern will provide all of the necessary equipment. All participants must provide their own swimming suits, towels, socks, and concession money.

The daily sessions will be held from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm. An awards presentation will be held on Thursday, June 10 at 4:45 pm. Parents are invited to attend to help recognize outstanding participants.
