My good friend Eric Dixon who just completed the USATF/IAAF Level 5 Academy is heading the Level 1 USATF school in Orange County Feb 18-19 2012.
The minimum coaching level you need regardless of your country affiliation is a Level 1 certification. Consider it the High School diploma of Track and Field. It’s a stepping stone to higher education and work experience. You must have both.
I took my Level 1 USATF in 2003 with Dave Schrock, and he’ll be one of the instructors in this course.
In the late 1990s our understanding of the human body changed… Did your coaching strategies and methods change with it? The more we learn about the human body the more we need to update the way we coach our kids. We owe it to our Young Athletes to do it right!
Now’s the time to get updated on the latest in coaching training, strategies and methods…
