Dates are set for The Pennington School, NJ, to host an overnight and day track & field and cross country camp July 10-14, 2016 and a track & field day camp program at the Hackley School in Tarrytown, NY. There are plans for additional locations next summer.

“The Clark Family Running Camps allows Olympians, elite athletes and world class coaches to positively impact the lives of young athletes in an unprecedented way," states Jan O’Connor EVP of US Sports Camps. “These camps transcend athletics and provide campers with the tools necessary to be a champion.”

The Camp is created, facilitated, and directed by members of the royal family of track and field, the Clark Family. Hazel Clark, Joetta Clark and Jearl Miles Clark have 12 Olympic teams to their credit and made history when they swept the 2000 Olympic Trials under the coaching of world class coach JJ Clark, brother of Hazel and Joetta and husband to Jearl Miles Clark.

JJ Clark is a 22 time NCAA coach of the year, a member of the 2008 Olympic team coaching staff, serves as the head coach at UCONN and has coached numerous NCAA champions, national champions, national team members and world class athletes. Joetta Clark Diggs is a four-time Olympian and the founder of the JCD Sports Foundation. Jearl Miles Clark is a five-time Olympian and American record holder. Hazel Clark is a three-time Olympian and the founder of Future Olympian Sports Clinics and US Embassy appointed sports envoy.

The Family has designed a comprehensive training camp program which focuses on track and field fundamentals including drills, pacing, strength endurance, speed and core strengthening as well as the mental edge necessary for top athletic performances.

Hazel Clark states that “the Clark Family Running Camps offer expert instruction from our staff of Olympic stars in a challenging, fun and inspiring environment. Track and field has given us many opportunities and we look forward to positioning upcoming athletes for ultimate success.”
