USA Track and Field's coaching education program provides educational opportunities for all levels of coaches, from grass roots to the elite level.
The program is comprised of three certification levels, which include instruction in sport science; technical, event-specific instruction; and hands-on training.
USATF's certification levels progress from Developmental, to Levels I, II, and III. Coaches have an opportunity to attend special programs held around the country, or more intense, advanced summit meetings.
Coaching education schools also are held at various locations. A full listing of USATF-sponsored Coaching Education Schools is available. That site also includes registration forms for the scheduled sessions.
The USATF Coaches Registry was originally conceived by the Coaches Advisory Committee to set standards for coaches affiliated with USATF.
A detailed explaination of the program can be found here.
More info for coaches is available from USATF.
