Overview

Coaching track and field is a unique challenge. The number of events, the specific technical skills to teach in each one, the event- and athlete-tailored training programs required for performing at a high level, and the planning and organization needed for practicing and competing effectively as a team can be difficult for even the most educated and experienced coaches.

Track & Field Coaching Essentials provides the information and direction to make your first, or twenty-first, season a success. Starting with the fundamentals, moving on to the sport sciences, and then detailing each of the events, this is the most comprehensive and authoritative coaching resource in the sport.

Experts such as Vern Gambetta on biomotor training for speed and power events, Joe Vigil on endurance events, and Jeremy Fischer on the jumps ensure the book contains the best and most current knowledge on each topic. Common technical faults and their corrections, as well as progressive performance drills, are included for every event, including relays.

This primary text in USA Track & Field's coaching education program is also a go-to reference for veteran coaches. Be it races, jumps, or throws, Track & Field Coaching Essentials has what coaches need to know to help their athletes achieve their performance potential.
