Track and Field Camp - Speed & Agility Camp
June 25-28, 2018

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.

The camp is open to all male and female athletes entering grades 3-12. The camp is designed to help each athlete develop speed and agility through techniques used by collegiate and professional athletes. There will be two groups and they will run from 8:30 - 10:30 AM each day.

  • Group I - students entering grades 3-8
  • Group II - students entering grades 9-12
