You guys have been asking what goes on behind the scenes and how to make things happen and you can now see for yourself.

DVD one - Goes into the details on what actually Coaching is all about.
Is far from just “turn up and coach”
You need more business skills than just Find money to pay yourself

  • What happens when athletes get better and need different races?
  • What happens when athletes need training camps? who pays?
  • Who pays for international meets and who should handle those affairs?
  • Is it just YOU, who are your Dream Team? Coach, assistant coach, massage therapist, team manager etc etc and at what stage of your athletes development do you need these guys?

This is largely about developing a long term business plan of action and not a get rich quick and overnight boom bang story. If you dont have a action plan, how will you fund it?

Once a long term business action plan is in place, i believe DVD 2 then follows.

This is an excellent series for those interested in looking at financial aspects of track and field. Many topics are covered with important implications for the coach, manager, and athlete.

This three-part series covers a whole host of important topics such as how to start your club (how do you select those who should be part of your club; how do you manage large groups, how can you travel). Charlie goes on to explain how to look at finding funding for important things like training camps and therapy. Later the series goes on to show how as an athlete and a training group develop they can seek more support locally, regionally, nationally, and even internationally. These examples illustrate that are many avenues for support that are often ignored or overlooked.

At the very highest end Charlie spends a significant amount of time talking about how the top athletes can be involved in supplemental activities that a) require a minimal investment of time and energy and b) can generate significant revenue for that athlete and the club. Charlie discusses the important of relationships and loyalty with agents and managers while exposing some of the underside of the sport (i.e., price fixing, rouge negotiations, poor shoe contracts). Charlie finishes by talking about how the coach can reasonably expect to make and income and what considerations should go into asking prices and contracts.

Again, there is much more in this 3 part series. It is a wise investment and interesting from a historical perspective as well. There are numerous funny anecdotes and gems regarding a level of the sport that few are involved with.
