The following is information from the NSAA regarding fall activities: The NSAA is preparing to begin the 2021 fall sports season as currently scheduled. First practices for football, volleyball, cross country, girls golf, boys tennis, and softball are set to begin August 9th. This past year the health and safety of our students, coaches, and officials was our priority as we worked to provide activities for our member schools. This will not change. If modifications are needed, we will be in contact with you ASAP. As before, we ask you to please be understanding and flexible as we continue to try to navigate through this pandemic. We will continue to work with the Governor’s office, Nebraska Department of Education, and the local health departments to make the best decisions for your students and our member schools. We are planning to start the fall season with no restrictions. To be able to start our activities on time we must be leaders when it comes to best practice, it is a recommendation of the NSAA that schools should: Work closely with your local health departments Keep groups small and attendance recorded Wash your hands regularly Disinfect equipment regularly Stay home if you don’t feel well Have a plan dealing with quarantining Embrace the opportunities for vaccination Our goal once again, is to return to school to have a full, productive, healthy season and create a great experience for our students. Please, help us achieve this goal. Good luck to all! JB
Reminder that if your son/daughter plan to play sports in junior high or high school they will need a physical. Fall sports practice starts August 9th for high schoolers. Make sure they are reaching out to their coaches if they need information.
School is just around the corner! If you are a junior or senior please check your email over the next couple weeks for important information to start the school year! See you all soon!

ELITE would also like to send a HUGE THANK YOU to Kimball County Transit Service for making it possible for so many of our campers to attend summer program. We couldn’t have done it without your support.
The older ELITE Campers played a strategic game of capture the flag and then wrapped up the day at the 32 Byte Arcade. Thank you 32 Byte Arcade for letting us come to visit and play with all the games. We truly had a great summer and can’t wait for program to start in the fall.
ELITE campers had an amazing final day of summer camp. The Little Munchkin group made marble paintings, had an ice cream party and finished the day with a tissue paper fight! We had so much fun.
But wait there’s more! Our ELITE summer pep rally also had lots of games. The little campers got to play Red Light, Green Light while the older campers played Captain’s Orders outside. We ended the day with the kids’ favorite: TP the Teacher!!
To finish out the day, the high school cheerleaders came over and threw a pep rally for the campers, featuring cheers, team races, and a Dance Off! 🎉🔴⚫️
We have had such a fun week at ELITE Summer Camp. Today our older campers got to play a game of water ballon volleyball while our little campers played hopscotch!
