OBJECTIVE The primary goal of the SU Jumps Camp is to assist each athlete in learning how to develop his/her athletic potential as it pertains to high jump, long jump, triple jump, and pole vault. We will accomplish this with a staff of outstanding coaches teaching the most up-to-date techniques involving each jump. Since it’s inception in 2003, SU Jumps Camp has attracted over 900 student-athletes! Shippensburg University has one of the finest track & field complexes in the Northeast United States. We have 2 pole vault landing areas, 3 high jump aprons, 2 long jump runways and pits, and 2 triple jump runways and pits. Shippensburg University has hosted the PIAA State Championships for well over 25 years. All participants will receive specific instruction on the events of his/ her choice. With the aid of coaches, the athlete will be evaluated and then taught drills to improve his/her skill level. Ship track camps are known for their one-on-one attention for the studentathletes. Video is used as a tool so jumpers can visually see what corrections need to be made. Participants will also be given useful drills to take home with them along with a better understanding of the weight room and what lifts are successful for jumpers in track & field.
FACILITIES The SU Jumps Camp is conducted on the beautiful campus of Shippensburg University. The campus, which is the site of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association state high school track and field championships, consists of a red all-weather eight-lane track, 4 horizontal jump runways, an all-weather javelin runway, two shot put circles, and two discus circles. There is an indoor track in the field house that can be used in inclement weather and a weight training facility that has 42 lifting stations. In addition, there is indoor swimming, indoor and outdoor basketball courts (if available), outdoor volleyball courts, tennis courts, and handball courts for recreational use. All participants will be housed in a modern residence hall and will be supervised by counselors. Meals will be served at the university dining hall.
