Coaches

Program Philosophy

The Sprint and Hurdles coaches build on the fundamentals learned in the Athlete Development Program. Dale and Gabriel focus on working with athletes to set goals, improve technique, train for speed and conditioning and develop mental preparedness for competitions. Practices include conditioning, acceleration development, speed drills, block work and speed endurance.

A weight training facility to build strength is available two times per week.
