TRAIN. COMPETE. IMPROVE.

The Nike Track & Field Camp at West Chester University offers an in-depth technical education into specific track & field events. Campers utilize one-on-one training, video analysis and competition to best educate athletes in their given events.

At camp, athletes are offered ample opportunities for repetitions in their given events while receiving the technical help of collegiate coaches. Campers of all levels are encouraged to come and learn about the events while improving their personal bests! Campers can choose from all disciplines: throws (shot put, discus, javelin) sprints, hurdles, and jumps (high jump, long jump and triple jump).  Throwers work on all three throws though out the day.  There is a morning and evening work out that are both 2-2.5 hours.  Our afternoon session is reserved for guest speakers & weight room (if available). 

*This is not a West Chester University-affiliated event.

    One on One Attention

    The camp staff were friendly and encouraging. My daughter appreciated that the coaches knew her by name and worked one on one with her.

    Useful new routines

    He loved the warm ups used at this camp. He will definitely use some of them before his events for his high school track.

    Great learning experience

    This camp was a learning experience for me and will be for you. The coaches are there to teach you the proper technique in your event and look out for you in the future.

    Tons of fun

    This is a wonderful opportunity to meet other people who will share your same love for running. The practices are challenging but doable and you will be sore at the end of it but not in pain. The coaches had wonderful different ideas to what you may be used to. It's good to experience a small part of what college would be like on a team. Overall it was a ton of fun.

    Lots of one-on-one time

    The camp taught me a lot more different techniques that I found very helpful during my time at West Chester. I will definitely remember the new skills I have formed and use them during my future as a hurdler. There was also a lot of one-on-one time with the coaches that I appreciated if I ever needed help or had a question.

    Detail oriented

    Nike Running Camps do very well at teaching athletes about all the different perspectives of their event(s). Whether it's nutrition or stretching, weight lifting or technique in the athlete's event, the instruction is very detail-oriented and is taught by genuine coaches who want the athlete to learn.

    Amazing instruction

    One of the great qualities of a Nike Running camp is its ability to help runners of all levels improve, because of the coaching. When I showed up to a Nike running camp, I enjoyed running but only had a percentage of the knowledge/abilities I have now. In fact, because of this amazing instruction I am now an eighth grader competing on a high school team.

    Overall great experience

    The Nike Running Camp gave great instruction to everyone from beginner to advanced. I learned to do a field event that I had never even done or seen before. This camp overall was great and I am already looking forward to next year.

    — Kristy P., Camper 2016

    Awesome feedback

    My son has been running for three years and I'm not sure if its due to the size of his team or lack of developmental training with his coaches, but he has never received specific feedback regarding his technique. Nike on the other hand has done that extremely well. He said he received awesome feedback on his form...things he had never heard before.
