ST. PETERS–United Academy will host a “mix and mingle” at Source of Inspiration and Learning (SoIL) Café on Friday, July 27, to introduce its programme “geared at student athletes,” and its school vacation camp.

United Academy is a sports and academic support programme. It will be headquartered at SoIL Café at #1 Alamanda Drive/L.B. Scott Road, Betty’s Estate.

“Friday’s social mixer, from 5:00pm to 8:00pm, is open to people interested in the combined academic and athletic development of our young and aspiring athletes and this first one is specifically geared toward a discussion of improving students’ opportunities in baseball and softball,” organiser and educator Rhoda Arrindell said in a press release on Thursday.

Arrindell is a long-time sports organiser who is also a lecturer at the University of St. Martin (USM). United Academy “aims to assist student athletes on their path to successful collegiate or professional sports,” she said.

At the SoIL mixer Arrindell will also announce the school vacation camp, which starts on Monday, July 30, and runs until August 10. The vacation camp will focus on sports, culture and Internet technology, she said. The sports areas are baseball and softball, while camp participants will also participate in activities promoting gaming and the island’s culture.

“Parents and guardians wishing to sign up their children ages 8-12 and 13 and up can contact United Academy at telephone 520-1136,” said Arrindell. “St. Martin’s baseball legend Rafel Skeete is scheduled to conduct baseball training sessions for players and coaches as well.”

The vacation camp venues will be SoIL Café and John Cooper/José Lake, Sr. Ball Park.
