It's been a very busy first 2 weeks of practice.
Thanks to everyone who has stepped forward to assist to date. I
guarantee you'll find the whole track experience more fulfilling on
the field inspiring kids versus in the stands as a spectator.
Predictive Testing is nearly complete. We'll continue to run tests
this week for athletes that may have missed a portion last week.
This testing provides invaluable information to the coaching staff
that will assist in helping the kids find their way to success
quickly. All of us are built differently. This testing identifies
those athletes that are naturally built for explosive performance.
*Athletes that rank high in this testing will find their success in
the sprints and jumps.
*Athletes that rank lower may be naturally built for the endurance
events of middle distance and distance.
*Athletes that are particularly tall for their age tend to do well
in shot put.
Ultimately, the kids will have the opportunity to try any event that
interests them. The purpose of the testing is to make some
suggestions based on their natural strengths.
Event training begins this week. Athletes will be sorted into their
strengths based on Predictive Testing results and practice in their
primary event on Monday and Thursday nights. Everyone will have the
opportunity to experiment in secondary events of their choice on
Wednesday nights and Saturday mornings.
We'll be building coaching staffs around each event head coach. If
you're interested in getting involved in a particular event please
see one of the following coaches during practice.
Distance/Middle Distance- Jeff Nelson
Sprint/Relays- John Yakob
Hurdles- Natalie Maeller
High Jump- David Summer
Long Jump- Darren James
Shot Put- Dan Miller
