5 Star High Jump Camp

The 4th annual  *** 5 Star High Jump Camp ** will take place on June 20th & 21st at Saint Mary’s High School in Berkeley.  It is designed for intermediate and advanced high jumpers who are looking for improvement.  The 2 day camp will cover all aspects of high jumping... the approach, take-off and layout... as well as general and high jump specific plyometrics, drills, and specific weight-training exercises. Video will be taken of very athlete and an analysis of the video will be used to provide the best possible recommendations for each jumper.  Athletes will be presented with an instructional manual and DVD, complete with written evaluations, analysis and recommendations for each person.
         The camp will be limited to 8  -  10 jumpers to insure that every athlete is afforded specialized time with the coaches.    Admission to the camp is on a first come - first serve basis.   All participants must fill out a questionnaire and sign a liability waiver.  The camp is being run by former U.C. Berkeley All-American (and school record-holder - 7'5¾") Jeff Rogers, who is currently the coach at Saint Mary's High School .  Several of Rogers' former pupils, including 2004 California State Champion and 4 time NCAA All-American Ed Wright, current U.C. Davis high jumper Maurice Spikes, and former CAL jumper Aziza Baker will be the other camp clinicians. For more information about the camp and the clinicians, go to
