This summer, through the Ventura Education Partnership (VEP), several academies will be taking place at Ventura High School that may be of interest to those who participated with Ventura Tigres this year.
Ventura High will be hosting a Long Jump / Sprint academy geared towards 3rd-6th graders from 6/26 – 6/30 from 9:00am-1:00pm. The day camp will focus mainly on proper technique in long jump, sprints, and the 4x100m relay. Each day will be broken up into 2 sessions on the track with one to two classroom sessions watching short video clips. The week will end with a mini track meet.
Athletes are asked to come dressed to run, and bring spikes if they have them (although spikes are not mandatory).
The academy is $195. It is run by Preston Biller, who has 20+ years’ experience coaching and competing in sprints and jumps.
