Seminole Track and Field Camps are complete track and field camps designed to meet the needs of the individual camper. The camps are divided into event areas: Sprints, Hurdles, Jumps, Throws, Javelin, Pole Vault and Middle Distance. Coaches will work one- on- one with each camper to ensure a quality learning experience, using technical drills and biomechanics feedback, to improve the camper’s knowledge and performance in each event area.
Sprints: Speed is a vital part of success in every sport. Athletes from football, baseball, softball, soccer, tennis and others- can attend our camps. During the four -day camp, participants will be instructed in; sprint mechanics, sprinting drills, block starts, relay exchanges, acceleration and speed maintenance. These skills benefit every athlete.
