Bill Bowerman Legacy Track and Field Clinic with World Class Coach-Harry Marra presented by Beynon Sports
We are excited to be hosting a track and field coaches clinic with renowned coach Harry Marra. Marra will instruct the clinic at the Maupin Deschutes River Athletic Complex in Maupin, Oregon. The goal and vision from Bill Bowerman's son Jon, is to give access to high-quality coaching techniques to small school coaches. The clinic provides a unique chance for coaches to receive personal mentorship from Marra and then immediately apply these insights to their athletes on the second day of the event. This hands-on experience will lead to immediate improvements in athlete performance.
The weekend will start Friday evening ( 2/23/24) with a Keynote talk from Harry Marra an Ashton Eaton about PASSION, KNOWLEDGE, TRUST AND COMMUNICATION. This will be open to both Clinic Attendees, Athletes and Community Members.
