Youth Summer Camp 2013
The fastest gazelles in the wild first start out with slow, uncertain steps. Just like true gazelles, the fastest runners must also start out on a solid, steady course to perfection. In this group you will learn to master the running fundamentals required to kick start your running prowess. Gilbert and his coaching staff will introduce drills, skills, and other techniques to put you on the fast track, focusing on the biomechanics, strength and endurance which form the basis for the Gazelles training program philosophies.
Gilbert Tuhabonye is a former NCAA All-American and National Champion who believes that by transforming an athlete's biomechanics, running becomes a joy and the likelihood of injury is significantly limited. Gilbert brings his running and life experience to the training in an educational and inspiring format that stresses his love and commitment to the sport.
This five day camp is designed for children ages 8-16 and will be separated in to two age groups (8-12, 13-16). Space is limited so that your child may receive personal attention.
Classes will cover the following:
- Drills to strengthen your core muscles
- The basics of running
- Agility drills
- Circuit training
- Workouts to build power
- Speed building
- Endurance training
- Flexibility strategies
- Nutrition advice
- A time trial (distance to be determined)
