Welcome!! I am so excited to come back to my hometown of Rexburg, Idaho on July 25th - 27th, hosting my "Follow Your Dreams" track and field camp at Madison Junior High School! I'm going to share all the tricks and "ah ha" moments in track that helped get me from a beginner in the sport to an international champion competing for Team USA! I will help introduce many of the heptathlon events, teaching about mental training and focus. I will break down running form to increase speed, and explain event specific techniques to help athletes hurdle faster, jump higher, throw further, and get better!   

This camp will be for BOTH boys and girls!

Group #1 Ages 6-12 meeting from 10:00am-12:00pm

Group #2 Ages 13-17 meeting from 1:00pm-3:00pm

Events we will be training:

Hurdles: Proper hurdling techniques for both the long and the short hurdles. Hurdlers will learn to increase speed and be introduced to drills to let them clean up and capitalize on their technique.

Sprints: Sprint mechanics, sprinting drills, block starts, speed maintenance. Breaking down form in order to break down records!

Distance: Running mechanics, maintaining cadence, race planning. These are so important when running a longer race!

Jumps: High jump approach will be broken down into simple learnable parts, and tricks to using speed while jumping will be shared! The long jump will be covered start to landing, including runway, takeoff, and landing tutorials to maximize distance.

Throws: Shot put will be introduced. Two types of approaches will be taught, sharing secrets learned that improved my shot put over 7 feet in two years!   

Every athlete will receive a custom "follow your dreams" T-shirt and receive an individual photo with me! 

***FEE $70 per athlete -- All proceeds will go to support my training for the 2020 Olympics!!

Thank you so much for the love and support! I am so truly blessed to have the opportunity to share my journey and accomplishments with my community and am grateful for this exciting opportunity! We are going to have so much fun, and I truly think you will leave this camp with so much knowledge, not only about track and field, but about doing what it takes to reach your goals and FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS!

All the love,
