This camp will help develop the fundamental movements required to become a better athlete. Whether your sport is football, basketball, lacrosse, baseball or track and field, many of the same skill sets such as speed, agility, coordination, balance and reaction time are essential to success. The camp will help improve these skills for athletes at all levels.
Camp is open to all male and female athletes and is designed to help each athlete develop speed and agility through techniques used by collegiate and professional athletes.
Camp is run by Dr. Angie Taylor, Alfred University's Track and Field Coach. Taylor comes to AU after spending four years in the capital city of Abuja, Nigeria where she served in multiple roles. Most recently she served as a member of the Ministerial Committee for the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development. In this position, she served as a Project Manager for Team Nigeria in the 2016 Rio Olympics and Paralympics where 12 teams qualified and competed. She was also a part of the 2015 All-Africa Games held in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo where Team Nigeria finished second overall with 47 gold medals - the best team finish in the country's history. Also, while in Abuja, Taylor was a member of the National High Performance Task Team and the Director of National High Performance. Prior to Nigeria, Taylor was Head Coach of the George Mason women's track and field team. While at the helm of the Patriots, she coached multiple student-athletes to the NCAA Division I Championships, US Olympic Trials, Junior Pan American Games and Pan American Games. Most notably, Taylor coached world-class sprinter, Murielle Ahoure of the Ivory Coast, who has since won silver medals in the 2012 IAAF World Championships in Istanbul, Turkey and 2013 World Championships in Athletics in Moscow, Russia. From 1995 to 1999, Taylor served as a women's track and field assistant coach at Princeton University, as well as serving on the coaching staffs at Louisiana State University and the University of Minnesota. Since 1992, Taylor has been a USA National Coach including various roles with Olympic Team, IAAF World Championships, Pan American Games, World Junior Championships in Athletics, World Cup, Goodwill Games and Junior Pan American Games. She also served an eight-year stint as a member of the Board of Directors. As a student athlete, she was a nine-time Gateway Conference Champion and member of the Valley All-Centennial Track and Field Team. In 1992, the Gateway Conference recognized Taylor on the All-Decade Team.
