TRPS Season Kickoff Track and Field Clinic

posted Jan 29, 2021, 9:08 AM by Paul Johnson

Feb. 20-21 - TRPS Season Kickoff Track and Field Clinic (Wimberley, Wimberley ISD Track Stadium)

Schedule:  You will have 2-3 sessions on Sat and 1-2 session on Sunday. Everything will be outside, and we will separate training groups to keep the numbers low and try to put like training speeds together.  No classroom session, except for WC maintenance which will be done with your chair and tools outside. 

Registration: Click the link to register. https://texasregionalparalympicsports.wufoo.com/forms/mayncf0pb7b8g/

Instructors: WC Racing - Saul Mendoza, Krige Schabort, pending: Cheri Madson. 

Field Events: Paul Johnson, Erica Wheeler

Ambulatory Running: TBA (I'm working on this one still)

As you see, these instructors are some of the best US Paralympics has to offer.  Just look up their Bio on the internet (your homework) and you will see, they are all VERY experienced and decorated athletes/coaches, and you should each be honored to get to work with these superstars.

Location/Lodging: This clinic is at our hometown track (Wimberley ISD) and it is small tourist town, so we have tons of nice private rental places.  We do not have hotels, so I am going to let each of you look for lodging that accommodates your family.  There are hotels only 15 miles away in San Marcos, TX.
