I was at Brown University last week taking a tour of the facility and I started getting really excited about the clinic this summer. It’s a great facility in a beautiful area and we have some of the best coaches in the Northeast teaching the athletes and coaches who choose to attend.
In addition to the New England states, we have athletes and coaches coming in from Texas, Maryland, West Virginia, New Jersey, Florida and Ohio. And almost as many coaches have signed up as athletes! So that will add an interesting dynamic to the clinic!
That said, if you’re looking for a quality sprints, hurdles and jumps clinic to attend this summer, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better one, especially if you live in the Northeast.
Today, I’m posting a few updates and answering some of the common questions we’ve been getting.
Question #1: I’m a sprinter and a jumper. Do I have to pick one event to focus on at the clinic?
Answer: Nope! This is your time. So you can divide your time however you choose. If you want to spend half the clinic at long jump and the other half at hurdles, we invite you to do so. Same goes for coaches. You can move from event group to event group at your convenience. And all of the clinicians will be around between sessions and after the clinic to answer any questions you have.
Question #2: Will you be covering the pole vault at the clinic?
Answer: Yes! We’ve added pole vault to our jumps itinerary. When you register and send in your waiver, let us know you’re coming for the vault so we properly categorize the number of athletes in each event group.
Question #3: I’m traveling to get to the clinic. Where should I stay?
Answer: If you’re planning to stay overnight and need a hotel, click here for the hotel deal we’ve arranged for you.
