All-American ASU track athlete returns to conduct clinic

Former Trojans track star Dominique Maloy had a successful sports clinic at the high school in January. She will return to the high school during spring break, from March 26 through April 3, at the Pahrump Valley High School track.

Maloy is 15-time AAA State Champion and an eight-time All-American from Arizona State in track.

In addition to track, she is also an amateur fighter and professional women’s football player.

“I am currently playing football for the Seattle Mist-Legends Football League (LFL) as a defensive back and safety,” Maloy said. “I am with the Seattle Mist, who won the 2015 LFL championship and we are looking to repeat this year. I am also amateur boxing for Fight Capital Training Center. Brandon Schneider also trains there.”

Maloy came during the winter and had over 50 athletes show up to her 2-day sports clinic. The clinic was geared to both high school students and elementary students and addressed skills the athletes could use in any sport. The athletes that attended appreciated Maloy for her knowledge and the fact that she kept her pricing affordable.

She is returning to satisfy the increased interest.

“I will be targeting and reinforcing the fundamental and basic skills necessary for all athletes,” Maloy said. “I will focus on igniting and connecting awareness while giving each individual the tools to increase speed/agility, endurance, strength/power and mental toughness.”

Maloy said that any athlete of any sport will benefit from the clinic.

“Athletes will gain tools and skills necessary for each individual to develop into their fullest potential, that can be used on and off their respective fields of play,” Maloy said.

When asked how she can address all sports in a clinic, she responded by saying, “The majority of sports incorporate speed, agility, endurance, strength, mental toughness. I open it to all sports since most sports have common traits and goals.”

Maloy engages the kids and makes learning fun for them.

“To assist in the fun factor, the clinic is engaging and constantly evolving,” Maloy said. “Athletes that have participated in the clinic find fun in being challenged and competing against the best version of themselves.”

The athlete said she was motivated to do these clinics for the kids because she has a desire to share her experiences, opportunities and lessons, “that will assist in every person’s free will to strive for the absolute version of themselves.”

“My desire to live in my truth is what motivates me,” she said. “My truth includes being responsible for the love my creator has put in my heart. Living in my truth consists of recognizing what has been bestowed onto me internally and externally. Honoring him and his will for my life because that is what is in my heart to fulfill. Participating in athletics and giving away my passion to ignite someone else’s desire is my truth.”

The Youth Sports Clinic (Spring Break Edition) prices are $20 for a day, $40 for three days, and $50 for all five days of participation.
