This past weekend at the BYU-Idaho Football Stadium, the Competitive Sports program hosted a Track and Field Clinic in preparation for its spring season. This included instruction on some of the most popular events that Track and Field has to offer. Some of these events included: Discus, Hurdles, Long Jump and Sprints.
“Just having that drive and just seeing how you can – you know – better yourself each and every time,” says Nick Tam, a freshman in general studies. “I like shot-put because it’s fun and you get a good workout out of it.”
“It’s really a good time to find skills that you didn’t have before and to be able to fine tune motor skills and to have a good time with people that you get to meet,” says Liz Steiner, a senior studying exercise physiology. “And a little of extra activity is a lot better than just sitting at home watching TV. So, it’s definitely healthy; emotionally, physically, and spiritually.”
“It caters to a lot of different talents and abilities: big people, small people, fast people, strong people, and people who have endurance,” says Doug Stutz, an advisor for the Competitive Sports program. “And, so, almost anyone can find an event in Track and Field that they can do well in. And so it caters to a lot different variety of people.”
