Real testimonials from parents

Hi Donavon. Just wanted to thank you again for the clinic in KY this weekend. It was by far the best clinic we have done and I will bring James to more, hopefully this season. I am implementing a set workout at practice right away. Other than the one the kids did Sunday, do you have a list of workouts to do at the track that you sell or offer to parents? We do 1-2 Nationals a month do you suggest tapering the week before each big race? James is 6 (almost X) if that makes a difference. Thanks!!   (Heather)

Hey Coach.   My son Ethan wanted to say thanks again for the training at blue springs.   He's been trying to practice harder and setting more goals.   I found out Shortly after we started that he's very good at setting his own goals and working to accomplish them!   In barely over a year he's managed to go expert and even won 2 of his 3 expert races. ( The second place was very close at Missouri state finals!  He's already won KS state championship)  He thinks practicing hard will make a big difference he says.... Lol.  He's decided to go for national rank next year so we'll probably see you at the races!   Anyways, just wanted to say you made an impact on my son, and we're both thankful for that!


I just want to reach out and say thank you so much for the clinic you put on last weekend at Derby City:) Our girl took it seriously and really looked at her practice and started planning it out and letting my hubs and I know what we can do to help her during those times...needless to say she had some really good and some improvement areas but she got her first national win ever on Saturday 📷 Thank you!!!  (Michelle)
