Jumps Camp

August 1 - 4, 2021


Jumps Camp

All campers will receive specific instruction on the event(s) of their choice. Campers will be evaluated and taught drills to improve their technique in the high jump, long jump,triple jump and/or pole vault. Video will also be used so jumpers can visually see what adjustments need to be made. Campers will also be given drills, shown lifts and hear from speakers to take home valuable information with them so they can have a better understanding of how to be successful in the jumping events.

If you plan to participate in pole vault, please bring your own pole, if possible. Poles will be available, but correct length and weight cannot be guaranteed.
