NIKE TRACK & FIELD CAMP FAQ

For general questions about our Track & Field camps please see our FAQ page.

The Camp will be conducted in two sessions.

Session One - Skill Development Drills

We will teach a series of drills in a systematic sequence designed to reinforce proper frontside mechanic drill progression and provide error correction, which will turn an athlete's weaknesses into strengths, improve skill, and increase performance by teaching strengthening exercises to enhance muscle groups considered the prime movers responsible for the actual execution of frontside mechanics and speed development.

Session Two - Individual or Team Sport Training

Track & Field athletes will receive an advance instructional model on Acceleration, Speed, and Power.

Team Sport athletes will receive further instruction on Acceleration, Deceleration, Top-End Speed, Change of Direction, Developing and Improving the Rate of Force Production, and components of Multi-Directional Movement to increase performance.

    The coaching staff was very professional

    My daughter was very nervous when she got there and almost did not make it, but Coach Furst talked her through her anxiety and helped her get on her feet.
