Camp Philosophy & Goals: Our philosophy is to impart each individual with the best and most up-to-date knowledge and techniques available. The campers select the event that they want to focus on during the UB T&F Camp. Each camper will receive individual attention and practice time throughout the camp to maximize their learning potential.

Pole Vault Camp Goals: Each camper will learn the keys to a successful approach, learning steps, adjustments, and practicing short & long approaches. Techniques will include approach, form in the air, and basic biomechanical principles.

Horizontal Jumps Camp Goals: We will begin with sprint mechanics, teaching form for top level sprinting. Approach and take-off will be taught, along with various drills to learn and/or improve the camper’s LJ and TJ.

Sprint & Hurdle Camp Goals: The goal of the Sprint & Hurdle camp is to teach the technique of both the high hurdles and intermediate hurdles. Form drills, lead-up drills, and extensive practice will be used to teach and evaluate each camper. Weight room training to enhance performance will be discussed.

High Jump Camp Goals: Campers will learn the basic mastery of high jump approach, take-off, and landing. Various drills will be taught to improve performance.

Throws Camp Goals: Shot put and discus throws will be covered, which includes drills and technique evaluation through film review. Weight room practice will include the explosive lifts, and learning proper form for effective performance.

Cross Country & Middle Distance Camp Goals: Basic form mechanics will be taught and evaluated. Training of the energy systems will be taught and how to train and race for 3 seasons (XC, indoor, outdoor). Effective racing strategies for track and cross country will be discussed. Steeple Chase will also be covered.

Required Health Form: Registrants will receive a Required Health Form via email that must be completed and returned prior to participating on the first day of camp.
