Campers can choose from all disciplines: throw (shot put,hammer, discus, javelin) sprints, hurdles, middle distance (including steeplechase), and jumps (high jump, long jump, triple jump, pole vault). Note: For liability reasons, pole vaulters must bring their own poles. During each training session, campers select an event of their choice for specialization. Each group is assigned an experienced event coach for specialized training and individual attention.
Throughout the week training and instruction are provided in breakout sessions taught by Nike sponsored guest athletes and coaches. Topics include a variety of subjects related to college and elite track and field training such as racing, motivation, nutrition and team bonding. A representative from the Stanford admissions office attends one session dedicated to the college recruiting process, offering valuable advice to campers.
