The GVSU Laker Youth Track and Field Speed, Agility and Technique Camp will work on developing fundamentals to improve performance in running, jumping and throwing.
While this camp is ran by GVSU Track and Field Professionals improvements can be transferred over to all sports that young athletes participates in during a given athletic year.
Every session will begin with a warm up targeted towards teaching athletes how to warm up their bodies for high performance both at the event and prior/following their athletic event.
Following this groups will break down into primary event sessions where campers can work on Running, Jumping or Throwing (hurdle education will also be provided but not pole vault).
Speed Agility and Technique will be addressed in every camp session for every primary event focus with the goal of teaching the athlete how to utilize drills, exercises and coaching to better themselves.
If 4 or more campers are present who run relays baton work can also be included during this camp.
