June 5-August 4, 2023
When track season ends and the summer is about to begin, it is time to start thinking about cross country training. It can be hard to stay motivated in the summer months without a team environment and organized training plan. For the summer months we want to provide support for young athletes to prepare for their cross country endeavors. Whether they have high hopes of State Championships and college scholarships or if they just simply want to push themselves further than they have before, we are there for their training needs. In this program each runner will receive a personal schedule suited for their mileage and training needs. Fall improvement is made in the summer and we are excited to help runners take a stride forward in their pre-season training.
In the 8 week session between June and the start of the school year we hope to provide athletes with a solid summer of base training that includes more than just direction in their running plan. We also will provide instruction on warm ups, stretching, injury prevention routines, drills and more. Summer is also a great time for learning. Every couple weeks runners will get to hear from coaches and guest speakers on topics like running in college, nutrition, injury prevention, footwear choices and goal setting.

Will also coached high school cross-country teams to state championship berths as well as several high school runners to individual state titles. Currently, Will coaches all levels of athletes, from those working to win their age group divisions at local road races, to those with Olympic Trials aspirations. Will has a special talent for helping struggling athletes renew their passion for racing and have break-through performances. In his spare time, Will enjoys spending time with his lovely wife, reading, running trails, and continuing to compete in local road races.
