3 Reasons Athletes Should Attend the 2020 CTF Summer Track and Field Camp

Posted by Latif Thomas

When you hold your track and field clinic at a school as prestigious as Harvard University, you better bring your ‘A Game’.

It’s no accident the Complete Track and Field Clinic has become one of the most highly attended summer track and field camps or clinics in the United States.

And we know you have other summer track and field camp and clinic options in your area.

But, if you’re a High School Sprinter, Hurdler, Jumper, Thrower, Middle Distance and/or Distance athlete, here are the Top 3 Reasons You Should Attend the Complete Track and Field Clinic at Harvard University on July 18-19 2020.

1. Get Noticed by More College Coaches

Which athletes are following directions? College coaches are watching…

If you want to get noticed by college coaches *and* get to the top of their recruiting list, it takes more than just a list of Personal Bests on a recruiting site and a video or two of you competing.

Coaches want to see if you pay attention in groups, work hard during every rep, pick up new skills easily, demonstrate coordination, speed, strength and power capabilities, etc.

Whether you’re interested in competing at the Division I Level, Division III Level or anywhere in between, no summer track and field camp or clinic boasts as many collegiate level coaches as the Complete Track and Field Clinic. Or as many opportunities to meet so many coaches and see if their coaching style fits your personality.

In 2018, we had 23 College Coaches from 17 different colleges and universities on staff (and a total of 43 College Coaches, High School Coaches and Collegiate Athletes) helping ensure every athlete got individual attention.

That should give you a good idea about how much individual attention you’ll get, as well as how large a variety of drills, cues, and ideas you’ll get from our large and diverse staff.

Bottom Line:

We guarantee that all of your questions about training, competing, improving (as well as navigating the college recruiting process if that’s your thing) will be answered before you leave on Sunday.


2. Meet New People and Make New Friends

Go to enough meets and you’ll see the same teams, schools and faces each week.

And that gets old after a while.

There are lots of cool people outside your current circle of friends…

Wouldn’t it be more fun and interesting to attend an action packed summer track and field camp taught by a top tier staff filled with athletes beyond the ones you see in your league, division and state meets?

Athletes not only from this country, but from all over the world?

Well, in the last nine years, the Complete Track and Field Clinic has hosted 3,346 athletes from all 50 US States, Puerto Rico, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Croatia, China, Japan, Barbados, India, Costa Rica, and Sweden!

If you’re looking for a very small clinic with only a few athletes and coaches, that’s awesome and you should have no problem finding one. But, if you want to learn from a wide variety of coaches at arguably the most famous University in the world and meet athlete from beyond your league or state, you want to be at the Complete Track and Field Clinic this summer.


3. Learn the Same Drills & Techniques College Athletes Are Doing

If you’ve been to The Clinic in the past, you know how much we teach in just two days. (If you haven’t, it will be like nothing you’ve experienced at your team’s practices, to say the least!)

Whether you come from a top high school program with great coaches or, well, the opposite of that, we guarantee you’ll leave the Complete Track and Field Clinic with an entirely new perspective and specific understanding of what you need to do to get better next year.

You will learn the exact same warm up routines, event specific drills, race plans, techniques and progressions our coaches use with their collegiate athletes…the ones performing at levels you hope to someday achieve.

But, the only way to get to the next level is to learn from coaches teaching ‘next level’ techniques.

If you bring the same old drills and habits to your next season, you’ll get the same old results.

We both know your competition isn’t about that life.

Next year, the kids you are barely beating will be beating you. The ones you want to catch will be pulling away.

It doesn’t matter if you want to get a full Division I scholarship or have no plans to compete in college, the Complete Track and Field Clinic isn’t just another 2 days of track and field practice.

It’s a 2 Day Event at the most famous University on the planet where you’ll learn cutting edge and event specific skills from elite college coaches while meeting new people and making new friends from all over the world!

If you love track and field and want to have your best season ever, join us on July 20-21, 2019 at Harvard University for the 9th Annual Complete Track and Field Summer Clinic.
