Runners’ Camp 2021 – Volunteers with track/field experience, help coach.
Attention: ANY EBC attendees with previous track & field experience > We’re gearing up for Runners’ Camp to return this year. So, we’re looking to fill out our roster of experienced coaches to give students the best experience possible! Don’t worry if you’re not a professional athlete; we just need a team of volunteers with enough experience in an event to be able to teach good techniques to elementary-age students.

There will be a coaches’ meeting ahead of camp time to make sure everyone understands how 2021 Runners’ Camp will be organized. If you have experience in Track & Field events and can commit be there to serve the community, we welcome & love to have your help: Sprinting (100m dash) Hurdles Distance run (800m run); Javelin, Discus, Shot Put, Long Jump, and High Jump. If you have any questions, please contact Pastor Matthew Carnagua!

Use of Liberty – ’24 “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win. 25 Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; 27 but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.”‘ 1 Corinthians 9:24 NASB
