Hurdles: Campers will learn proper hurdling techniques for both the long and the short hurdles. Campers will learn how to alternate lead legs to prevent lost of momentum during the hurdle race. Hurdle drills, video analysis and excellent coaching will better prepare all campers for the next track and field season.
