The early years are some of the most crucial for developing athletes. Constant practice and guidance are necessary in order for them to achieve their dreams of making it big in the sports world. Unfortunately, there are very few programs in the world that are able to provide the time, energy and attention to detail that is needed to shape a professional athlete. Wasatch Academy provides unparalleled athletic programs for serious athletes from around the world. About 2,000 students attend annually, turning out for the renowned Nike Running Camp and Breakthrough Basketball program respectively.
Bill Bedford, the head coach of the High Altitude Running Camp is a well-respected former collegiate athlete (ice hockey and lacrosse) and an exceptional runner who regularly participates in distance runs, marathons, triathlons, bicycle racing, and cross country ski racing. The program includes kids ages 10 to 18 and institutes a rigorous daily workout regimen designed to push students limits and help them achieve their full potential. The camp ends with students participating in the annual Ute Stampede, a well-known 5k.
Wasatch’s basketball camp is led by a professional coach who has been in the field of teaching professional sports for over 20 years. Coach Jim Huber has 45 Championships under his belt, along with 13 Runner-up Finishes, and 26 Final Four Finishes at regional and national tournaments since 2004. The four-day camp is run by professionals for aspiring players in grades 7th through 10th. Students will participate in mock-up tournaments, challenging workout regimes and on the court strategy building. Wasatch Academy helps to shape and hone athletes, turning students into professionals on the court.
