Track & Field Camp Skyhawks

Skyhawks Track & Field was developed to introduce young athletes to a sport rich in tradition and history. These programs combine technical development and fundamental techniques with safety while keeping a major focus on fun! Using special equipment, our staff teach the standard track & field events: long distance, sprints, soft hurdles, relays, shot put, discus, and standing long-jump. Our exercises and drills prepare athletes for a future in cross-country, track & field events, and distance running while inspiring a love for running and being active. The fundamentals of body positioning, stride, proper stretching, and cool-down techniques are covered in this unique program. Participants will put it all together for one fun-filled day at the end-of-the-week track meet!
