[Video] How to manage coaching multiple events at the same time…

Posted by Latif Thomas

For high school coaches, managing multiple event groups at the same time (as well as managing training for athletes who compete in multiple event groups) is a significant issue that can drastically impact the individual and group success of your team and program.

It’s one of the most consistent and popular questions I get.

And it’s one of the primary topics I’m going to cover, in depth, during my brand new Zoom webinar class next week.

To help you get prepared for next week, I’m sharing a video from a panel discussion on this very topic that took place a few years ago at the summer Complete Track and Field Clinic.

There are several takeaways from this video. The obvious ones are the specific options and examples each of the coaches (myself, Kebba Tolbert, Ron Grigg, and Gabe Sanders) give.

But, in my opinion, the most important one comes from the, um, *commonality* between each coach’s response.

If you’re a high school coach who struggles with figuring out optimal training in less than optimal settings: cold weather, no track access (training in the hallways), large group sizes, minimal staffing, etc., then understanding this principle and how to apply it across the totality of training is critical to planning administering effective training.

Once you understand this principle of utilizing a commonality based approach to training, you’ll immediately begin to gain a better understanding of your activity and exercise selections.

If these topics are of interest to you, register for now for one of the few remaining spots available at my newest CTF Master Class Series webinar, ‘Real World Solutions to Common Problems Affecting High School Coaches’.

I hope to see you next Monday and Tuesday.

Enjoy the Holiday weekend.
