The primary goal of the SU Jumps Camp is to assist each athlete in learning how to develop his/her athletic potential as it pertains to high jump, long jump, triple jump, and pole vault. We will accomplish this with a staff of outstanding coaches teaching the most up-to-date techniques involving each jump. Since its inception in 2003, SU Jumps Camp has attracted over 950 student-athletes!

Shippensburg University has one of the finest track and field complexes in the Northeast United States. There are two pole vault landing areas, three high jump aprons, two long jump runways and pits, and two triple jump runways and pits. Shippensburg University has hosted the PIAA State Championships for over twenty-five years.

All participants will receive specific instruction on the events of his/her choice. With the aid of coaches, the athlete will be evaluated and then taught drills to improve his/her skill level. Ship track camps are known for their one on one attention for the student-athletes. Video is used as a tool so jumpers can visually see what corrections need to be made. Participants will also be given useful drills to take home with them along with a better understanding of the weight room and what lifts are successful for jumpers in track and field.
