Today’s athletic training requires techniques and capabilities not even considered 10-20 years ago. The concept of “over speed” training by running down hill, bounding sideways up hill for lateral speed training, and countless other techniques require some capability of running both up and down a surface with the appropriate angle of ascent and decent. The booster club designed and built this hill for just such purposes. It is used by all the athletic teams at CPHS.
