Hillsdale College and the Nike Running Camps Release dates for their 2019 Rising Stars Camp

Hillsdale 2019 Dates

San Rafael, CA – The Nike Rising Stars Running Camp announces its dates for its two session offered this summer, July 10-13 and July 14-17, 2019. Athletes are invited to the beautiful Hillsdale College, MI, campus where they can choose the track & field or the cross country program. The track & field program offers all disciplines including throws (shot put, hammer, discus, javelin), sprints, hurdles, middle distance (including steeplechase), and jumps (high jump, long jump, triple jump, pole vault). Middle distance and cross country runners spend their week perfecting their form and with the goal of becoming better, faster and smarter athletes.

Each camper is exposed to state-of-the-art training, as our knowledgeable staff uses a combination of drills, demonstrations and training theory to enhance their performance. Flexibility and weight training sessions provide a comprehensive package of the latest methods necessary to improve.

Camp Director Andy Towne enters his eighth year as head coach of the Hillsdale College track & field/cross country programs. During this time, he has led the women to five NCAA podium finishes and the 2015-16 Division II Program-of-the-Year award.

“We’re excited to host two sessions this year, due to increased demand,” say Coach Towne. “Our coaching staff, along with our counselors, looks forward to our Rising Star Camp every year!”

“Coach Towne has led this great camp for six summers and has done a fabulous job in each,” says Jan O’Connor, Executive Vice President of US Sports Camps. “His enrollment numbers have increased year to year, with repeat campers coming back for more! The Rising Star Camp offers the runners the shot in the arm they need to get pumped for their upcoming season.”

The Rising Stars Camp is coed, ages 12-18, all levels of ability, for those who are interested in furthering their knowledge on training, injury prevention, nutrition, strength training, and recovery.
