We divide our Jumpers into two groups:

Group 1: Long Jump & Triple Jump

Group 2: High Jump

To attend the clinic, you will have to choose a focus by picking *one* of the two groups. Because of the way the clinic is run, you can not move between groups between sessions during the day or between Saturday and Sunday.  You will stay with the group you choose for the entire clinic.

Think About How Much You'll Learn From Our Diverse and Experienced Group of Jumps Experts, Including...

Reuben Jones (Princeton University)

(Featured Clinician) Jones spent five years coaching collegiately at two Ivy League institutions, Columbia University in the City of New York and Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. In total, his athletes earned three NCAA first-team All-American honors, set two Ivy League records, and won sixteen total individual Ivy League titles. Recently, Jones coached an athlete to a Ghanaian record which allowed her to represent her country in the IAAF Continental Cup and multiple African Championships. He has co-taught the USTFCCCA Jumps Specialist in addition to the T&F Technical Certifications with Boo Schexnayder.

Museveni Akanno (UConn)

(Featured Clinician) Museveni 'Moose' Akanno comes to UConn after having spent the past four seasons serving as an assistant coach for the Dartmouth women's track and field program. During his time with the Big Green, Akanno has helped guide several individuals to record-setting performances and Heptagonal Championships. His former student-athletes on the women's side have broken records in high jump, long jump, triple jump, pentathlon as well as sprint hurdles during both indoor and outdoor seasons. He has also helped to elevate the men's jumps to new heights with numerous program records and top-five showings by several student-athletes under his guidance.

Robert Whitten (University of Rhode Island)

(Featured Clinician) Whitten has helped develop 19 A-10 Champions and 14 runners-up, 45 All-New England finishes and seven New England Champions and 13 All-East/All-IC4A selections. There have been 24 all-time indoor top 10 performances and 21 all-time outdoor top 10 performances in his time with the program. The multi-events have been a particular strength for the Rams in Whitten's time, accounting for seven A-10 champions and three New England champions. Rhody athletes have set and reset the A-10 record in multi-events five times (three times in the heptathlon, twice in the decathlon) and set the New England heptathlon record. The school record in both the heptathlon and decathlon has been broken four times each under Whitten's watch. Nine of the top 10 marks in URI history in the heptathlon have been set since Whitten's arrival. In the decathlon, seven of the school's top 10 marks have been established in the same time frame.

Allyson Thomas (UMass - Lowell)

(Associate Clinician) Thomas is the first full time track and field assistant ever hired at UMass Lowell, focusing on the multi-event athletes, long and triple jumpers, as well as assisting with the pole vault and high jump. At VCU, Thomas served, first, as a graduate assistant and part time assistant in her first two years with women's track & field program, before she became a full-time assistant coach for the newly combined men's and women's track and field programs. She oversaw the pole vault, multi-events and the high jump. Several of the athletes she worked with helped to rewrite the school's record book.

David Jackson (UMass - Amherst)

(Associate Clinician) In 5 seasons coaching the Minutemen, Jackson has produced six Atlantic 10 champions (Zach Koncki (2011) - indoor long jump, Sean Busch (2010 & 2011) - indoor & outdoor pole vault, Brian Miller (2010) - outdoor high jump), one indoor New England champion (Zach Koncki (2011) - long jump), five school records (Nicholas Ingham - heptathlon (4731 pts.); Zachary Koncki - indoor (24'.05) & outdoor long jump (24'.75"), Sean Busch - indoor pole vault (16'.075"), Brian Miller - outdoor high jump- (7'.025")), one Atlantic 10 Student-Athlete of the Year (Sean Busch) and two seasonal UMass Scholar-Athletes (Sean Busch and Stephen Bigelow), as well as multiple Student-Athlete of the Week award winners.

Ken Hunt (Brown University)

(Associate Clinician) Ken Hunt joined Brown’s coaching staff in 2012 and coaches the men’s and women’s horizontal jumps, vertical jumps, and multi-events. Entering into just his second year, the Bears have made stellar improvements under Hunt’s direction as he has coached 12 All-Ivy athletes, 17 performers onto Brown University’s All-Time Top Ten list, 4 school records, and a 2012 NCAA Regional qualifier. During the 2010-2011 season, while at Georgia Southern, every student-athlete who competed in jumps recorded personal bests . As a result, Hunt was a finalist for the 2010 NCAA Southeastern Region Assistant Coach of the Year.

Jesse Chapman (Columbia University)

(Associate Clinician) Jesse Chapman joined Columbia's coaching staff as an Assistant Coach for the Jumps and Multi Events in 2016. In 2015 he was part of the Northeastern Track and Field team as an Assistant Coach for the vertical jump and multi events.

(This list will be updated as the event group fills up and we add more staff to the roster.)

  • Waiting List

    Slots in this group will sell out quickly. This is not marketing hype as last year over 500 athletes from 8 countries attended. If you wait to register and get put on the waiting list, the only way to get in is if someone in your group cancels. For the last 6 years, NO ONE on the waiting list has gotten into the clinic. You’ve been warned!

  • Refunds

    A non-refundable deposit of $100 is attached to all registrations in order to prevent slot hoarding and the last second bail outs preventing Wait List athletes from attending. This means, if you ask for a refund before the ‘No Refunds No Matter What’ Deadline of July 6, 2017, you will be refunded $199.00 – Your $299 registration fee less the $100 deposit.

  • Inclement Weather

    While we do have access to and will use the indoor track, the number of attendees means the 2017 Complete Track & Field Clinic will be run outdoors, rain or shine. In the event of thunder and lightning, we’ll delay the clinic until the weather passes. We cannot fit everyone indoors and to ensure the quality of the event, will not plan to do so!

  • Clinic Disclaimer

    Camps run at Harvard University are done for the benefit of the Harvard coaching staff and not affiliated directly with Harvard University.

  • Daily Schedule

    The posted schedule is a general one and is subject to change at any time, including during the clinic itself.
