Winterset High School Competition Gym

The Winterset Boys and Girls track programs would like to invite all incoming male and female 3rd-8th grade students to participate in a summer speed and agility program. This program is designed to help our young athletes improve their overall athletic ability by teaching specific techniques and participating in competitive drills. This is meant to be for all athletes who are looking to improve in these areas, not just for those interested or involved in track.

Each session will last approximately an hour and will include a warm-up, sprint technique development, speed/agility drills, and then competition/games. We will focus on straight line speed, lateral quickness, changing direction, and other key components that are used in multiple sports.

If you were not able to register your child for one of these camps but they are interested in attending, please add them to the waitlist! The MCCB will use the waitlists to determine interest in each program so it is worth your time to sign up! There is a possibility that they will be able to make adjustments to the capacity and numbers of sessions offered this summer based on interest.
