USATF plans Learn By Doing Clinic for Chula Vista OTC on August 27

6/13/2016
 

INDIANAPOLIS -- USATF is set to host a Learn By Doing Clinic on Saturday, August 27 at the Chula Vista Olympic Training Center (CVOTC).


Coaches of all experience levels can become a skill coach in the major events of track & field: sprints, hurdles, jumps, throws, middle distance and long distance running. The clinic is available to all who are interested, regardless of training or certification.

 

Coaches can learn the actual coaching of techniques, drill progressions, and coaching cues with error correction and video analysis. Participants will shadow USATF Master Coaches in a day of practicum on the field, teaching and demonstrating. The experience of visual learning and learn by doing is better than any video you can purchase.


As a bonus, a coach may bring up to two athletes (ages 14-19) to be student-athletes for the Master Coach clinician to work with while the coach observes and assists with the drill and technique teaching. No prerequisite is needed, and interested parents and trainers are welcome. All athletes must be accompanied by a coach.
