Starting in September, the JAC will be offering training opportunities for those athletes ages 12-18 who want to train for their events year round. This is a one of a kind opportunity for any track and field athlete who is serious about their sport. Training in the fall for the spring and summer competition season gives the athlete a huge advantage to their competitors!
After the athletes take a few weeks off from the summer club, and after they have a few weeks of school under their belt, we start training again. The training group will start Tuesday, September 7th, and conclude on Friday, December 10th. Athletes will also have the opportunity to compete in an indoor meet in North Carolina on Saturday, December 11th.
We will be offering training 5 days a week (Monday - Friday) and the combined event athletes will also throw on Saturdays. Training will be at The Bolles School, and will go from 4pm-6pm. If you are an athlete who only does the throwing events, your practice time will be 5pm-6:30pm, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Time will be dedicated on event specific conditioning, speed and power development, as well as technical development for all events. This fall we will also be teaching Olympic and power lifting movements to the older athletes, as this will help their speed, power, and overall coordination.
The cost for the fall training group is $200 a month, or $600 for the entire fall period.
This is the perfect training option for the track and field athlete looking to get ready for the high school season. Get a jump start on all of your training for all of your events!
