US Sports Camps Highlights Its Best Youth Track Camp at The Loomis Chaffee School
San Rafael, CA - Nike Running Camps celebrates their noteworthy staff members at The Loomis Chaffee Track & Field Camp. NIKE Running Camps is always happy to be back at The Loomis Chaffee Prep School in Windsor, CT.
The Nike Track & Field Camp at The Loomis Chaffee School is open to athletes ages 10-18, with overnight and extended day and day options available. Campers reside in the dorms at Loomis Chaffee and eat in the campus dining facility. Camp runs from Sunday, June 29th to Thursday July 3rd.
It offers the perfect opportunity to learn from a very knowledgeable and noteworthy staff below and train in one of the finest prep school environments on the East Coast.
Jesse Chapman, a senior at UConn and the 2013 Big East decathlon champion, will be part of our coaching staff this year. . Jesse attended Loomis Chaffee as a PG in 2008-2009, winning New England prep titles in the shot and discus, and finishing second in the 110 high hurdles to a teammate. Camp director Scott Purdy enjoyed coaching Jesse at Loomis, and he looks forward to continuing to work with him as a colleague this summer.
Sally Knight, the head boys cross country coach at Loomis Chaffee, will return to coaching at the camp. In the last decade, she has coached seven different athletes who broke 2:00 in the 800 meters in high school, and three of her former athletes so far have gone on to earn collegiate All America honors, two at Division III schools (Williams and Bates) and one at a Division I school (Princeton).
Finally, this spring the Loomis boys track and field team, led by Scott Purdy, the camp director, won its fifth consecutive Founders League title. In addition, one of his triple jumpers leaped 46' 6", both a school and championship meet record.
At the NIKE Running Camps, our goal is to stimulate a love for running and aid runners in becoming better, faster and smarter athletes. They provide an educational and inspirational experience for campers, ages 10-18, all fitness levels and abilities.
