Weekly Schedule

Generally we will have a coached cardio practice 3 days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 7am to 8:45am. This schedule is subject to change based on athlete and coach availability. We will try to schedule practice to fit everyone's schedule. In past years we have scheduled practices to start early in the morning because it fits most schedules. Practice will be held at Traverse City Central high school, Hickory Hills, West Middle School, and around the Grand Traverse area.


We are hosting a 3 day camp at the Sleeping Bear Dunes July 30th - August 1st. Athletes who participate in this dryland program will get a free camp registration.
