Registrations have been moving along for the June high school running camp up in the cool Flagstaff climes. June 18-23 is the youth camp for runners 13-18 years of age. We hold the camp on the beautiful campus of Northern Arizona University. 6 days and 5 nights – room and board, full handouts on all lecture topics, shirts, water bottles, give-aways of various sorts and fantastic workouts – all for $435! But this is only until 5/15/12. Then the registration moves to $470. We accept registrations right up to the week before camp as long as the University can accommodate us. So act now, get your young runner the support they need to get this summer off to a great start which means their fall cross-country season will have the foundation for success!
This camp is like no other. We have 2-3 workouts per day – all designed to improve your running and minimize injuries. We do not just “do miles” we do “better miles”. All information is science and research based. You can be assured of walking away with the knowledge to run your best.
This camp is NOT just for elite or varsity runners! Everyone is welcomed at our camp! We tailor workouts to the campers… and don’t force campers to do what they are not capable of or in condition for. That is why we have a 10:1 ratio of campers to counselors. We make sure everyone is attended to.
Who should go? 8th grade through seniors in high school who are motivated in improving their running. We ask that you be in basic condition upon arrival to take advantage of all the workouts and to apply what you learn. You should be able to run about 4 miles non-stop. But, attitude is everything.
Which leads me into what separates us from all other camps.
What also separates us from other camps is our resident nationally certified mental game coaching professional – Coach Dean of course! Every day includes mental game topic lectures AND mental game training is integrated into workouts. We provide a motivational and supportive atmosphere for those willing to do their best. We also have a “No Excuse Zone”. We believe in fostering mental toughness and working through barriers – optimizing each individual’s potential.
Did you know that Coach Dean has worked with athletes of all kinds? Baseball, football, soccer, tennis, and volleyball players; race kart drivers, MMA fighters, golfers, bowlers, runners, triathletes, equestrians. And he’s accustomed to working with elite athletes – nationally ranked runners/All-Americans, D-I, II & III & NAIA varsity runners (including a member of the national indoor track champions), #1 Race Kart driver in US point standings (2012), top 50 US golfer (15-18 year olds), #1 US Duathlete at World Championships in Spain (2011).
Get on it now! The experience is like no other. They will be talking about their experience for a long time to come. They’ll take the experience with them forever.
