So has anyone received any info about summer push camps out in UT or elsewhere? I checked on the Utah Bobsled and Skeleton website and didnt see anything at all.

I got a email from USBA and the push track isnt opening until June 4th and they still havent set a date for the push school. They are setting up a couple of programs first then they are going to set the dates for the school. I'll write more as I get it. Hope this helps.

So is anyone planning on making a trip out to Utah this summer for a weekend at least?
I'm thinking about just calling out there and seeing what is available roughly 3 weeks in advance.

Push Track Park City

And just to let you guys know, it's only open for a few months each year. I think last year they closed it a couple weeks before the ice track opened.

Push Training and Summer programs

Postby George » Wed Jun 20, 2007 10:00 am

It's fantastic that USBA is offering push training, motion analysis, sprinting/general conditioning program, coaching from Tristan Gale (she rocks) and Tim O' Mara (who's a lightning fast sprinter with excellent mechanics). I'm so envious. Back when I did push training, I had no coaching or feedback, so I merely ingrained bad habits. Make the most of these wonderful opportunities! :)
