Nike Running Camps Middle School Sessions
March 29, 2018- Nike Running Camps boast a list of alumni who garnered All-American status, NCAA championships, and even Olympic medals. While it is easy for these athletes to stand on the podium and sport the façade of their success, it is important to recognize the work they put in, and the skills they learned along the way. A great deal of their success stems from the coaches they had in their younger running years.
“At Nike Running Camps we are proud to say we work with some of the best coaches in the country,” says Jan O’Connor Executive Vice President of US Sports Camps. This summer runners ages 11-14 can enroll in specific middle school programs, geared specifically to their age group, and work with our countries top collegiate coaches. Green Mountain Running Camp (Meriden, NH), Smoky Mountain Running Camp (Asheville, NC), and Nike Raditude Cross Country Camp (Malibu, CA) offer advanced training for middle school athletes. “Our middle school sessions offer the unique opportunity for younger aged runners to get a head start on their future running goals. By training with top collegiate coaches they get a sense of what is expected to run at the next level,” says O’Connor.
