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. That doesn’t mean anyone is guaranteed any result, but that every athlete is guarenteed the opportunity to self-actualize into their highest, truest expression. 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).
