Men's Track and Field Camps

Student-athletes that want to pursue their sport at the collegiate level and earn a track and field scholarship should take advantage of every opportunity to showcase their talent in front of college coaches. Though college coaches can attend a prospective recruit’s track meets during high school and club seasons, track and field camps provide a great opportunity for elite athletes to showcase their skills in a competitive environment while gaining maximum exposure to college coaches. Whether you’re attending an in-season clinic to hone your techniques or want to stay at your best during the off-season by challenging yourself at summer track and field camps, camps and clinics are a valuable tool used by coaches across all division levels to evaluate potential recruits in-person on or off campus.

Potential track and field recruits often ask whether summer camps are important to the recruiting process. While not a requirement to succeed in the recruiting process, track and field summer camps offer a great opportunity for athletes to demonstrate their athleticism and character to college coaches, even if they attend a track and field camp before they can communicate freely between each other. It’s a great way for potential recruits to check out a college campus, its athletic facilities and—recruiting rules permitting—introduce themselves or follow up with a college coach or athletic department staff. How do college track and field camps work?

Insider tip: While the NCAA doesn’t limit the amount of college camps potential recruits can attend, it’s important to find camps that are tailored to your athletic abilities. For example, if you’re a high school freshman still working on your PRs, you may want to hold off on attending a Division 1 premier camp and instead sign up for a clinic geared towards improving your overall strength and mobility training. Track and field athletes should not attend camps before they’re ready to compete against top athletes.

One of the most valuable benefits of finding summer track and field camps near you is gaining access to elite college coaching that can ultimately improve your performance in the upcoming high school or club season and overall recruiting potential for years to come. Face-to-face contact is crucial when evaluating recruits. As an added benefit, attending camps means that coaches will be able to see more than just your times and measurables and also focus on other key qualities, such as your coachability and character both on and off the track.

Where to find the best track and field camps for your event

Before attending a track and field camp, it’s important to understand the different types of camps that are offered for high school athletes.

For jumpers (especially pole vaulters), hurdlers and throwers, learning technique at college track and field camps and clinics can be just as important as any other aspect of your natural athletic ability. College camps often include technical instruction by college coaching staff or current student-athletes at the college. This is a great opportunity to learn about college track and field coaches’ training styles and techniques. Alternatively, interacting with current members of the team at a track and field camp can give you invaluable insights into life on campus. 

Middle-distance and long-distance runners might contemplate overnight track and field camps because of the greater opportunities instructors have to teach you about building a base and including strength and mobility training in your workouts. Just like any other track and field athlete, make sure that you’re making the most of your camp experience: talking to college coaches and current college track and field student-athletes whenever possible, thinking about what life would be like on campus and asking questions about the school’s athletic and academic track and field recruiting standards.

Track and field camps for high school students 

Track and field camps for high school students are held by hundreds of clubs and colleges across the country. It’s easy to find a track and field camp near you that offers elite coaching and takes your performance to the next level. Track and field camps also give potential recruits the opportunity to check out the school’s campus and athletic facilities, while gaining some familiarity with the coaching staff and program. 

Despite the NCAA prohibiting recruiting conversations between student-athletes and Division 1 coaches until June 15 after sophomore year, college coaches can still use college camps to evaluate underclassmen for future rosters. Likewise, for current freshman and sophomore athletes interested in jump starting their recruiting process, NCAA Division 3, NAIA and NJCAA college coaches also offer and attend camps throughout the year. College coaches at these division levels are allowed to have recruiting conversations and communicate freely with student-athletes regardless of grade level.

We’ve compiled a list of track and field camps below that you can use to effectively plan your recruitment this year.

Insider tip: Despite the impact that coronavirus had on college sports, as of June 1, 2021, the NCAA resumed its regular recruiting rules and activity! Coaches are actively working to fill their rosters, so student-athletes should be proactive in reaching out to coaches. Read up on how the extra year of eligibility granted to athletes who were most affected by the pandemic in 2020 will impact future recruiting classes.
