The 13th annual 2016 Rocky Mountain XC Camps

Team Prep USA is the premier high school distance running camp in the world according to ESPN Rise and from anyone involved. We have set the bar on Footlocker finalist, NXN All-American, College All-Americans, American Record Holders, and Olympians. Rocky Mountains Xc Camps started the trend on allowing student athletes to come from 4 nights - 41 nights. Attendees of camp will have the opportunity to train at elevations ranging from 7,700 ft. to 11,000 ft. of the Colorado Rocky Elk Mountain Range. The Gunnison Valley of Colorado has become a Mecca, according to 'Nike' for athletes of all kinds to train. The beautiful trails and terrain available in this area are one to reckon with in North America. The weather at this time of year in Colorado is excellent as well. The first camp session will begin on June 26th at 12noon and last session ending on July 16th at 12noon. Team Prep USA is excited to host their 13th annual Rocky Mountain Cross Country Camp in Crested Butte/Gunnison, Colorado. The summer camp will be held at the Western State Colorado University in Gunnison Colorado, just 30 minutes south of Team Prep USA's training center and headquarters. Western State Colorado University is home of the Division II perennial powerhouse Mountaineers distance programs. They have had over 50 national Champions and over 300 All Americans.

If you’re flying in please arrange for flights into Gunnison Regional Airport (Free) or Montrose Regional Airport ($50 travel fee for each direction) for the start date of session attending. A staff member from Team Prep USA will pick up the camper from the airport. We should have some of the top high schoolers in the country again residing with Team Prep USA over the summer! Last year we had 46 states in attendance.

The camp is focused on morning shake outs with flexibility drills, extensive core training, lectures from elite runners and coaches, and afternoon runs on the trails of the Gunnison valley. The RMXC camps are designed for distance runners that will enable them to gain a base and be able to hit the cross country season “running”. The camp will also have an academic component, nutritional component, and how to build a desire within you. If you’re new to Team Prep USA, you can send your deposit of $400 to hold your spot, then we request that you send in 3 letter of recommendation. We have developed a large following so we try to protect the campers and clients that are already involved. We have a zero tolerance policy of breaking the rules. The camper goes home the next day on their parent’s expense if rules are broken. Team Prep USA supports the student-athletes that want to get it right and do not waste time on the kids that do not have a forward course in their development. Team Prep USA does have patience and cares but we feel in America that the kids that want more do not get the attention they deserve. We work very hard and play hard as well. Team Prep USA's track record is remarkable, just ask anyone that has been involved!

Last summer the Rocky Mountain XC Camps were an absolute success and we represented over 40 states and 4 countries! Our enrollment was at the highest ever with filling all slots and even turning student athletes away. It is fair to say now that the RMXC Camps have become the top individual elite select camps in the country! If you have been calling regarding info about Team Prep USA and have had a hard time reaching us, please try emailing us at TeamEliteUSA@hotmail.com as we have had large call volumes.

It is going to be an incredible time! You will be at the premier camp in the World when it comes to running. There are no other camps in the country that produce the runners like this camp does. We have set the bar like no other camps have in the past 5 years. 18 high school distance All-Americans have been produced through Team Prep USA in less then 4 years including 2007 Footlocker Champion Ashley Brasovan. Team Prep USA was at Nike Nationals this past Spring before summer camps started and set the bar even higher with 3 All-American finishes, 1 meet record, 1 national title, and one runner up finish.

"Trent is one of the top distance coaches in the country. I've watched him build champions on the high school, college and open levels. The guy can flat out coach distance"
Braman- 3 Time National Coach of the Year(06,07,08
"Champions are built in the Off season! Trent consistently sets the bar for the high school elite distance world. I would make sure my kid was apart of the Off Season with Team Prep USA! " Legendary Pat Tyson
Legendary Pat Tyson - Steve Prefontaine's roommate
"Coach Trent Sanderson is doing a excellent job of helping young runners reach their potential in distance running. He has helped many athletes earn athletic scholarships to top Division I cross country / track & field programs."
Duke University Kevin Jermyn
“Coach Sanderson was instrumental in the development of an athlete we are excited to have joining us next fall. Our recruitment of her quite likely wouldn’t have happened without his sound advice to both parties. He is a professional.”
University of Colorado / Mark Wetmore
“What an amazing opportunity Trent Sanderson gives to young athletes who are eager to take their running and competing to the next level. He certainly has a strong connection with our sport and a keen knowledge for building success on the cross country course and the track”
Kelly Strong- U of W 2008 XC NCAA Champions!
I think one of the best things Trent provides athletes is a progressive program that will allow student athletes to keep improving at the next level. So many of the club coaches over train their athletes and they just never get much better once they sign a scholarship. Trent's athletes have a nice background in the sport but they are not over cooked!
Coach Waters - 2009 National Track Champions!
"It is rare to find such a high quality, informed, and well connected coach at the high school level. Coach Sanderson is the type of coach every good high school runner wishes they had in their school."
University of Kentucky / John Mortimer
"Coach Sanderson does a great job of laying a foundation of knowledge of distance running in young athletes. The more equipped they are to understanding the sport, the easier the transition into college. I also trust Trent's opinion and outlook on athletes. He has been a great resource for me throughout several recruiting processes."
University of Virginia / Todd Morgan
"Coach Sanderson has done alot for the sport in developing and mentoring talent... Go Trent!"
Coach Karen Harvey '08 ACC Coach of the year!
"I continue to be so impressed by Coach Sanderson and his staff at Team Prep USA! Trent student-athletes are well prepared both mentally and physically and always seem to get it done in the classroom as well."
Coach Brad Hunt
"Trent has been passionate about distance running for quite some time and has truly made a name for himself as a coach. He has worked with and helped so many runners improve over the years. Every athlete of his that I have recruited, has spoken very highly of him and his training program, and so many have had tremendous improvements and success."
Brown University / Craig Lake
"Trent Sanderson is one of the finest distance coaches in the U.S.A. His ability to work with and attain improvement from young athletes is remarkable."
Western State College / Dr. Duane Vandenbusche / 3
Trent is very well connected to the running community. For those student-athletes that are trying to become part of a competitive college program, Trent is a great place to look for guidance. He'll help them understand the process and the level of commitment it requires to be successful.
Michigan State University / Rita Molis
I have seen Trent Sanderson take emerging high school athletes and develop them into Footlocker Finalists. Most coaches dream to have one athlete make it to nationals in a career, while Trent does it annually.
University of Arkansas / Lance Harter
"As a college coach, I truly appreciate a coach like Trent Sanderson that provides two great services for our sport. First, he does a great in coaching the athletes in his program. Secondly, and equally important, he is a great advocate for them in their college search. His students are really in a win-win situation."
Dartmouth University / Barry Harwick
