Dear Track and Field Athletes,

We would like to invite boys and girls to Bloomington in June for the 2017 Hoosier Cross Country/Track and Field Camp. Indiana's Track and Field Head Coach Ron Helmer along with assistant coaches on his Indiana staff will be offering a pair of camps that will provide the opportunity to get world-class instruction in your specialty event or events from June 27-30.

If you're entering grades 7-12 in the fall, there will be an overnight and commuter option for you to choose from this summer. Overnight campers will stay and eat at one of IU's dormitories, which are located just minutes from the Robert C. Haugh Outdoor Track and Field Complex. The events covered for this summer's camp includes: sprints, middle distance, distance, hurdles, high jump, long jump, triple jump, throws and pole vault. 
If you're entering grades 1-6, we'll be offering a youth camp during those same dates which will offer an opportunity to be introduced to a variety of events.

No matter what your age or specialty event is, the Indiana Track and Field Camp staff has a wealth of knowledge and coaching experience to share. They've coached Olympic medalists, NCAA and Big Ten champions, and they're looking forward to the chance to coach you!

The Robert C. Haugh Outdoor Track and Field complex is one of the nation's premiere outdoor track and field complexes. It is located on the east side of Fee Lane, just north of the 17th and Fee Lane intersection.

This camp is open to any and all entrants.

We hope to see you in this summer!

CAMP LEADERSHIP

 

Ron Helmer - Head Coach, Indiana Track and Field


Ron Helmer is in his ninth season as the Indiana Director and Head Coach of Men's and Women's Track and Field and Cross Country after being named to the position on May 25, 2007.
During his first eight seasons, he's coached seven Big Ten Athlete of the Year, 40 Big Ten champions and two Big Ten Freshmen of the Year while twice being named Big Ten Coach of the Year.

The 2013 cross country season was a special one for the Hoosiers as Helmer guided the men's team to their first Big Ten title since 1980 and third top-10 finish in the last four years at NCAAs. The women's team also qualified for the national meet, making it the first time since 2004 both teams competed at NCAAs.

The 2012-13 track & field season culminated with senior Derek Drouin becoming the first NCAA athlete ever to win five NCAA titles in the high jump and as a team Indiana achieved 15 All-American honors. In his last year competing for IU, Andy Bayer earned his 11th All-American honor as he placed eighth at the NCAA Outdoor Championship in the 1,500-meter run. Six Hoosiers won a total of nine Big Ten event titles. The Hoosiers had two athletes advance to the World Championsihps with Drouin and De'Sean Turner in the steeplechase. Drouin earned the bronze medal. Drouin also earned the 2013 Bowerman Award, which goes to the most oustanding male and female student-athlete in collegiate track & field.

Ed Beathea - Associate Head Coach, Indiana Track and Field


Ed Beathea begins his second season at Indiana as Associate Head Coach. Beathea will work primarily with sprints, hurdles and relays.

Before returning to IU in 2014, Beathea was the head coach at Ohio State for two seasons. He also spent 10 years at Indiana (1996-2006) as an assistant coach for hurdles and sprints, the last four as associate head coach.

Most recently Beathea had six athletes qualify for the 2014 NCAA Outdoor Championships with a 4X400m relay and athletes in the 200m, 400m, 110m hurdles and 400m hurdles.

In his decade with the Hoosiers, Beathea coached 32 Big Ten sprint and hurdle champions, 28 All-Americans and two NCAA runner-ups. He gained national attention for his work with sprinters David Neville - a bronze medalist at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games - and Rachelle (Boone) Smith, the 2006 USA outdoor champion in the 200-meter dash, while also building his reputation as an excellent relay coach. Under his leadership, the women's sprint relay squad made conference history by becoming the first Big Ten relay team to win the league title and earn All-America recognition for four consecutive years (2001-05).

In his six years as an assistant in Columbus, Beathea, the 2010 and 2011 Great Lakes Assistant Coach of the Year, instructed the Buckeye sprinters and hurdlers, as well as athletes competing in the horizontal jumps. He mentored Ohio State athletes in his event areas to 10 individual Big Ten titles while also building the Buckeye 4x400-meter relay team into a Midwestern juggernaut that won five Big Ten titles in a row from 2008-2010 and qualified for multiple NCAA championship appearances.

Mike Erb - Assistant Coach, Indiana Track and Field


Mike Erb begins his second season with the Hoosiers and coaches the jumps and women's multi event groups.

Erb spent the 2013-14 season as the head coach at the University of New Orleans and is no stranger to the Big Ten, having spent five seasons (2008-13) as a member of the Illinois women's track and field staff as an assistant coach, working primarily with field events. The last two seasons, Erb handled coaching duties associated with the men's high jump, pole vault, javelin and multi-events.

During his tenure at Illinois, Erb coached 10 student-athletes to All-American performances, six to Big Ten individual championships and had nine student-athletes post school-records. In addition, the Illini won the Big Ten women's indoor team title in 2013. Also in a five-year span, a total of 54 student-athletes coached by Erb have scored points at the league championship events.

CoRy Martin - Assistant Coach, Indiana Track and Field


Cory Martin, who will be an assistant coach and work with the throwers group, is one of the elite shot put throwers in the world, currently holding the No 16 spot on the all-time world performance list (22.10m/72-6.25). Martin was the runner-up at the 2013 USA Indoor Championships and qualified for the World Outdoor Championship in Moscow.

Martin, a native of Bloomington, Ind., was a nine-time All-American at Auburn, including National Championships in 2008 in the shot put (20.35m/66-9.25) and hammer throw (74.13m/243-2.5). Martin has been a volunteer coach for Indiana for the past two seasons.

"I think Cory's experience as both a state champion, an NCAA Champion and being ranked in the top-10 in the world, gives him a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the throws and what it takes to be successful there," IU head coach Ron Helmer said. "His interactions with a number of high level coaches adds to his knowledge and I think he can use that knowledge to achieve results as a young coach and I'm confident he will do that."

Andrew Poore - Assistant Coach, Indiana Track and Field


Poore enters his second year as an assistant coach with the Hoosiers after a successful career as a student-athlete and volunteer coach for the program. Poore is an alumnus of the Indiana Track & Field program (class of 2012) and works with the distance event group along with serving as the recruiting coordinator.

Poore earned six All-America honors and two Big Ten Championships during his time at IU. Poore finished in fourth-place in the 3,000m steeplechase at the 2013 USA Championships. Poore has been volunteer coaching with the Hoosiers since his graduation from Indiana in 2012.

"Andrew and I got here together and saw the growth and he was apart of the growth of our men's program," IU head coach Ron Helmer said. "He absolutely believes in the potential and possibilities of what we can accomplish. He is driven to make sure that we can achieve that success with both genders on a consistent basis."

Jake Wiseman - Assistant Coach, Indiana Track and Field


Jake Wiseman, who has mentored some of the top freshman pole vaulters in the nation in Vera Neuenswander in 2007, Stephanie Chin in 2008 and Kelsie Ahbe in 2010, enters his 11th season as the Hoosiers' assistant coach for pole vault and javelin.

Wiseman, a former Indiana decathlete who was second-team All-Big Ten in 2005, has helped guide Neuenswander, Chin, Ahbe, Blayne Burkholder and Jeff Coover to NCAA Championship appearances in the past four seasons. His vaulters have won five Big Ten titles and earned All-America honors 11 times. Under Wiseman seven different athletes have qualifed for a national meet.

In the 2013-14 season Wiseman helped the IU women nearly sweep the top three spots at the Big Ten Indoor Championships as Kelsie Ahbe was the Big Ten Champion, Sophie Gutermuth finished runner-up and Sydney Clute finished in fourth-place. Ahbe and Clute both advanced to the NCAA Outdoor Championships and both earned All-America honors. Ahbe jumped a school record 4.40m and finished in second-place, while Clute finished in eighth-place.
