West Texas A&M Camp

Coach Keller,

I am Jake Krolick the director of the 2019 West Texas A&M summer cross country and track & field camps and clinics. I would like to invite East Mountain High School’s track & field and cross country teams or any interested individual athletes to Canyon, TX this summer to learn from our coaches and athletes here at WT who have produced 151 All-Americans, 10 individual NCAA Champions, 2 NCAA Team Championships, as well as 18 Lone Star Conference Championships, all since 2010. Below you can find information about each camp and our coaching staff / camp instructors.

The 2019 West Texas A&M Cross Country camp will be held July 14th – July 18th on the campus of West Texas A&M University in Canyon, TX. Campers will live like real college student-athletes living in the dorms, eating in the cafeteria, attending talks about the physiological, psychological, other daily aspects of training while training stride for stride with the West Texas A&M cross country runners! The West Texas A&M cross country team has qualified for the NCAA championships the past 6 years and has produced numerous cross country All-Americans! This is a great pre-college experience and an opportunity for runners to escape the heat & humidity for a week training in the Texas Panhandle with morning temps in the 50s & 60s! Camp director Jake Krolick has been named LSC coach of the year the past 2 years and has coached the Buffs to top 15 finishes at the NCAA meet in each of his first two years at WT. Camp is $375 for individual campers and $325 / camper for those who come with a team of 4+.

This summer we will be offering event specific track & field clinics on 4 different weekends this summer (June 7-9, June 13-15, July 26-28, August 2-4 – See link below for event specific dates). Athletes can register for 1 day ($75), 2 day ($115), 3 day ($150), and $35 for each additional day. Head Track & Field Coach Matt Stewart has been the instrumental factor behind the track & field success the past decade. Coach Stewart who was an NCAA Division I All-American sprinter at Texas Tech, has directly coached 85 of WT’s 151 All-Americans in his specialty sprints & hurdles. Coach Stewart was named the USTFCCCA Coach of the Year in 2018 during the indoor season and USTFCCCA Assistant Coach of the Year in 2017. Coach Stewart has picked up 3 LSC coach of the year awards as well. Coach Randy Denham the throws coach at West Texas A&M has a long list of accolades on his resume as well highlighted by 3 NCAA Champions (2 Discus & 1 Shot Put), has been coaching for over 40 years and has spent the past 8 years at WT. Coach Ryan Gibson will be directing the vertical & horizontal jumps clinics and has coached national champions in the long & triple jump along with national qualifiers in the pole vault & high jump. Coach Gibson also has experience coaching the sprints during his time as an assistant at Tarleton as he coached All-American hurlers & the 4x400 relay. There is no doubt whichever event you specialize in, you will have experienced & proven coaching to guide you.
