OVERVIEW

The Spring 2019 Armory Indoor Track and Field Camp is now available! After very successful camps in November 2017 & 2018, we are now offering a spring camp to help high school track & field athletes prepare for the outdoor season. This spring we will feature some of the best coaching minds in the sport and some of the finest American athletes in track & field.

The event will take place at the historic Armory in New York City, located at 216 Fort Washington Ave in Washington Heights. The Armory is home to one of the finest indoor track & field facilities in the world.

The structure of the event will follow the November 2018 camp format by featuring a morning and afternoon session. This will allow all student-athletes the opportunity to register for more than one event or attend for just a half day.
