With Will Freeman,
Grinnell College Head Track & Field and Cross Country Coach;
former Chairman of USA Track & Field Coaching Education
In Getting Started, Will Freeman offers a valuable, "must see," step-by-step guide that every high school coach (including assistant coaches) should watch at least once prior to every season! The two-part instructional DVD begins with a discussion of the nuances of the coaching profession and essential coaching basics. Some of the highlights are discussions on the ingredients of "what makes a good coach," defining coaching "values" and "10 Principles of Coaching." In the second part of this DVD, Freeman gets track & field-specific with discussions on the following concepts: Developing a System, Challenges in Coaching High School Track & Field, Teaching Progression Issues, Seasonal Planning/Workout Planning Considerations, Workout Structure, Varying Training, Volume/Intensity/Frequency Issues, Technical Considerations, Safety, Motivational Aids, Utilizing Leaders, Nutrition, Alternative Training Methods, Staging Home Meets and Building the Sport at Your School.
