2015 Oregon Track & Field Camp
Sunday June 28th - Thursday July 2nd
We invite you to join us here in TrackTownUSA where you will experience the magic of Historic Hayward Field. Many track and field greats have come and gone and have left a special legacy for passionate and aspiring young athletes.
Our 2015 track and field camp welcomes high school athletes looking to improve and grow in the sport of track and field. There are no specific performance requirements to attend our camp so athletes of all ability levels are encouraged to attend.
In order to provide a valuable experience, campers will be split up by event area and then again into small groups to encourage personal attention and to provide plenty of feedback. Campers will be taught by the University of Oregon's renowned coaches alongside many of Oregon's current and former student-athletes.
Event groups are outlined below. Please note that campers will have the opportunity to cross over into other groups but we believe campers will maximize their experience if they focus on one main group for the duration of the camp.
Sprint / Jump Group: 100m, 200m, 400m, 100mH, 110mHH, 300mH, Long Jump, Triple Jump (some relay work will be done for 4x100, 4x400m)
Distance Group: 800m, Mile/1500m, 3000/3200m, 5k, 10k, Cross Country
