Art’s summer, fall and winter training has helped to produce 15 state champions and 40 district champions in Oregon and numerous other athletes in different states. Art’s training has been successful due to the focus on technique and workouts geared to the individual’s needs.
Often Art can be found working with small groups that are dedicated, hard-working and focused on performance improvement. The individuals in these groups share commonalities in their events and performance, creating an environment that helps them build off and encourage each other to greater performances and improvement.
