Gustie Hurdle Camp

Friday, June 20, 2014 &Friday, June 27, 2014

Enrollment

The Gustie Hurdle Camp is open to anyone entering grades 9-12 this coming fall. As the enrollment for the sessions grows, more instructors will be added to keep the camper to instructor ratio low.

Facility

We will use the Track Complex if the weather is nice. If we need to go inside our hurdling will be done in the Lund Forum. Both facilities have a Mondo running surface. We will use the Gustavus starting blocks.

Cost

The cost will be $50.00 for the day.

Check-in

Check-in will take place between 8:30 and 9:00 am on the north side of the Lund Forum. The camp itself runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

Pre-Camp E-mail

Each camper will receive an e-mail the week before camp with a map and other necessary information.

What to bring

Campers should bring workout clothes, racing spikes (1/8” metal spikes), training flats and a water bottle. Please leave your jewelry and other valuables at home.

Special Features

Each camper will receive a camp spike bag and a three ring binder of hurdle articles/information.

All you can eat lunch will be in the nationally recognized Gustavus dining service.

We will watch film of collegiate and world class hurdlers.
