Our Event Specific Holiday Camps are back! 

And there's no need to fret if you have a lovely exotic holiday booked, as we are hosting the camps on two dates- one at the start of the holidays and one at the end! 

Tues 9th July- Thurs 11th July 2019

Tues 30th July- Thurs 1st  August 2019     

 

Glasgow Athletics Association and Glasgow Sport Athletics Development have joined together to host FOUR event specific camps this Summer:

- High Jump 

- Pole Vault (in partnership with the Glasgow Pole Vault School)

- Hurdles 

- Horizontal Jumps (predominantly long jump with a taste of triple jump)

 

Our camps are designed to introduce/develop children’s track & field event skills, where the emphasis is always on fun and enjoyment!

All athletes will choose one event to specialise in over the course of the camp. 
They will be split into their event specific groups in the morning and then come together in the afternoon for talks and arranged group activities. 
 
 
Dates: Tuesday 9th July- Thursday 11th July 2019

         Tuesday 30th July- Thursday 1st  August 2019           

Time: 10:00am-3:00pm

Venue: Emirates Arena

Ages: 12-17 years old

Cost: £70 for Glasgow Club Members, £80 for non-Glasgow club members

Athletes can expect: event specific coaching; nutrition seminars; injury prevention; international athlete talks; t-shirt :) 

 

Each event will be lead by passionate event specific coaches (all of which still compete themselves to a high level) with knowledge and experience of their events that they want to pass on to the next generation. Our four female coaches were very well received at our Spring Camps and we are delighted to be welcoming them back this summer.
