Kids were all smiles last Saturday at the track and field clinic hosted by LiFE Sports and Ohio State track and field athletes in French Field House. The free clinic was held in lieu of the free summer camp hosted by Life Sports this coming summer.
“I’m excited to teach the children”, said Camai Brandenberg, senior on the women’s track and field team.
The clinic was composed of four track and field events: relay race, basic sprint, shot put, and long jump. Each event included a demonstration by a student-athlete. Afterwards the kids had a chance to show off their skills.
This is the second clinic that Morgan, 13, has attended through OSU Life Sports. Morgan runs track and field for her middle school and attended the clinic to strengthen her skills. Her brother Austin, 13, is a distance runner at his middle school and was very excited to meet the Ohio State track athletes.
The clinic was a huge success with a great turnout. As they moved from the various stations, the children were smiling and full of energy.
“I really enjoy giving back to the community,” senior Aaron Roberts said. “I hope that all the kids found a track event that he or she may be interested in.”
Children in the Columbus area were able to have fun while learning about track and field. OSU LiFE Sports holds clinics and camps throughout the year, all free of charge. Check out LiFE Sports at http://www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/camps/life-sports.html.
