More Important Camp Details
In addition to cross country training, the Nike Cross Country Camp at USD will aid any runner wanting to learn the basic elements of how to lead a team and inspire others while aiming to reach their team's potential. The camp will teach principles of team management, conflict resolution, communicating with coaches, team building, developing new runners, and identifying ways to contribute to furthering a positive team culture.
Coach Guarino will guide athletes through break out sessions and interactive discussions that will take place on campus, and away from campus near the beach, the San Diego bay, San Diego's historical sites, and also San Diego's own Balboa Park. The sessions are geared towards a driven leader that loves the outdoors and wants to make a contribution to their team.
This running camp is for the active endurance athlete that aspires to lead his/her team to the next break through level!
