This camp was super informative
July 26, 2019: This camp was super informative and very beneficial to my running and how I approach curtain aspects of running now! I would highly recommend. The highlight for me was the amount of knowledge that the staff and coaches had about the sport that I never knew about and can help me very much in the future.

My daughter learned a ton and got a lot of 1-on-1 work
July 14, 2019: My daughter learned how to do the glide throw for shot-put and the spinning throw for discus. She also learned some weight training exercises that she can do to strengthen her for these events. She got a lot of one-on-one coaching. This camp was great, but it needs to be better publicized!
