Grand Valley State Track & Field Camps

High School Track & Field Camp

The purpose of this camp is to provide a high quality individual instruction in the technique and training that is necessary for young athletes to reach their full potential, as well as to develop and improve upon their skills. Everything is designed to instruct and motivate the athletes through entertaining training sessions and lectures. In addition to a variety of successful coaches from across the nation, a number of current Grand Valley State track & field student-athletes will be on hand serving as camp counselors. While the development of proper technique and skills is a goal of this camp, the most important takeaway is to have fun!

Campers will be supervised at all times to ensure a safe and secure environment for the athletes to learn and have fun. Any innapropriate behavior or misconduct by the camp participants could result in dismissal without a refund.
