Hosting a Level 1 school is a great benefit to your track & field community as well as an opportunity to share your coaching expertise with other coaches and athletes. Interested applicants should be graduates of the USATF Instructor Training Course and should review the Coaching Education Administration Manual.
How To Apply
To host a school an applicant must complete the application below and email or fax the completed application to Ryan Bailey. Applicants should include any additional information that might assist USATF in the application review process.

Email or fax completed application forms to:
USATF Coaching Programs Coordinator
Applications must be received no later than 14 weeks prior to the date of the proposed school. The applications will be reviewed, and the school director will be contacted within two weeks.
Factors used to select proposed schools include: geographical location, dates for which the school is scheduled, quality of past schools (in the case of a repeat site), and conflicts with USATF events or other schools.
Please note that submitting an application does not guarantee the school will be approved. Although USATF encourages directors to plan the logistics of the school, it is recommended they not be implemented until formal written notification has been received.
Once the application to host a school has been approved, the school director will receive an informational packet with additional details. Each school director will be required to submit a promotional flyer for the school, which will be used to promote the school on the USATF website. Download the promotional flyer here.
