The NSAF's Project Triple Jump is at the start of its fourth year, with the 2014-15 clinics scheduled for Houston, TX (October 16-19, 2014) and Phoenix, AZ (Jan-Feb, 2015). The Project's elite athletes, having trained in Chula Vista, CA and Nassau, Bahamas in 2014, are looking forward to exciting indoor and outdoor seasons. They will include competition at New Balance Nationals Indoor and Outdoor, as well as clinics again in Chula Vista and Nassau.
Just announced (10/7): An exciting feature of the Houston Clinic will be a quartet of guest speakers, representing some of the event’s all-time U.S. and global greats:
Two of the athletes from the program, Keturah Orji and Chinne Okoronkwo, represented the Project particularly strongly last summer, making U.S. International teams. Keturah (now at the U. of Georgia) was on the U.S. team competing at the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships in Eugene, OR, and Chinne represented the U.S. in August at the Youth Olympic Games in Nanjing, China.
The clinics are open to all interested coaches and athletes who register. State-of-the-art coaching and training will be available as well as opportunities for observation and interaction with the coaching staff. Coaches and athletes are encouraged to film, ask questions and generally be involved so they can gain maximum benefit from this event.
