Dominique Maloy and her sports clinic has returned to Pahrump for its annual spring clinic:

“A YouthSports Experience-Spring 2017” is a sports performance program offered to improve and develop each athlete’s talent and character into ability and presence.

Who: Third grade to twelfth grade athletes. Why: Through the source of our heartbeats, there is an equality in all of us. And all of us deserve a shot at it.

My intention in this program is to offer what was given to me, to contribute to each athlete’s development and becoming their heart’s desire. When: April 1-2, 10 a.m.; 11 a.m., seventh to twelfth grade athletes; 11 a.m.-noon third-seventh grade athletes. Where: Pahrump Valley High School football field. Program offerings: Softball, baseball, track and field, summer sport preparation -transitioning from one sport to another (maintain and improve ability), fundamental and body movement development (coordination and conscious awareness), track performance training (speed and expanded awareness).

Price: $30 for two days and $20 for one day. Note: 10 sponsored spots available for athletes/families whose financial status keeps their athlete from being a part of the experience (just show up to the experience or email to dom.healthandfitness@gmail.com).
