At the beginning of each summer, Wings hosts the American Indian Running Coaches Clinic for student-athletes, coaches and community members working throughout Native America. Cultural stewards, historians, elite athletes, health professionals and training experts are invited from around the country to speak at this conference-style forum. Through their personal stories, research, coaching insights and demonstrations, clinic attendees gain new perspective on the history of Native running and learn innovative ways to take their passion to the next level. As part of the orientation process for our summer Running & Fitness Camp facilitators, this program underscores mentoring and the importance of sharing knowledge at a professional level.
The 2018 clinic will be held June 1st & 2nd in Santa Fe, New Mexico at The Institute of American Indian Arts’ Center for Lifelong Education. Registration is $75.00 and includes a Wings t-shirt and meals (Friday & Saturday- Breakfast & Lunch) along with access to all clinic presentations and materials. Please complete and submit the quick and easy registration form HERE to reserve your seat and learn more about payment options.
