Track and Field Camp
JUNE 27-July 1, 2011
The Wisconsin Track & Field Camp is a five-day program open to any and all entrants who will be entering ninth grade in the fall of 2011 through those boys and girls that will graduate in 2012. Begun in 1989, the camp continues to host elite coaches and athletes from around the country.
The camp's purpose is to provide quality instruction in the techniques and training that are necessary for young athletes to reach their full potential in the areas of sprints, hurdles, and field events.
Workouts, lectures, films and activities are all designed to instruct, entertain and motivate. We are aware that our campers represent a wide variety of talent, motivations, education and experience. We are prepared to tailor our program to each athlete's needs.
Several University of Wisconsin track and field athletes will serve as camp counselors. They will be joined by successful coaches from the college ranks as well. The counselor to athlete ratio is low (approximately 1:10) to ensure individual attention, which is the program's trademark.
A certified Athletic Trainer will be on site to provide medical treatment throughout camp.
Campers will be supervised at all times to ensure a safe and secure environment. Any misconduct by campers could result in dismissal from camp without a refund.
2011 Wisconsin Camp of Champions
There will be no middle distance or distance events offered at the Wisconsin Track & Field Camp; however, the Wisconsin Camp of Champions, which takes place in July, is one of the premier cross country/distance camps in the country.
