Athletes will utilize The Capital Center’s outstanding indoor training facilities. The facility features a new 200 meter ISS-1000 six-lane track by Martin Surfacing, two 26-foot jumping pits with in-ground jumping boards, two pole vault areas, a cement in-ground throwing ring, and all new blocks and hurdles. Thefacility will host several indoor collegiate meets this year. Last year we hosted the Ohio Athletic Conference Championships.The Capital Center is a state-of-the-art facility with a 2,200-seat performance arena, an indoor track, a multipurpose forum, a fitness center, and classrooms. The Capital Center hosts athletic events,commencement activities, convocations, rallies, concerts and other gatherings of the CAP Family and the Bexley community. It provides opportunities for intramural activities and athletics, including Capital’s NCAA Division III men’s and women’s track & field program. The adjacent Bernlohr Stadium includes a press box and seating capacity for 3,000 people.
The purpose of this clinic is to introduce young track & field athletes to the concepts that are used in the training of university track & field athletes. We will look at the warm-up and cool down phases for a practice/meet. Then, we will move into strength development and finally look at techniques specific to track & field events. The concept we stress the most is that track & field athletes have to know themselves and understand their event(s). An athlete needs to know and understand why and how certain drills and exercises are done and how they apply to what he/she is trying to accomplish.
Each participant should bring T-shirts, gym shorts, socks, sweats, running shoes, spikes (1/4"), specialty shoes and a water bottle.
The fee is $70, no extra charges. A non-refundable $40 administrative fee will be retained from each application.
