World Class Sprint Programming Workshop[/SIZE][/SIZE]
[b]November 27-28, 2004
Charlie Francis, one of the top speed coaches in the world, makes limited appearances worldwide throughout the year. His influence is still being felt throughout the Track and Field and professional sports world. Not only has he worked with Olympic Medalists and World Record holders in Track and Field, but has also worked with some of the top teams and athletes in football (NFL), basketball (NBA) and ice hockey (NHL). Some of the top sprinters in the world and Canada continue to consult with Charlie on their training programs and technique, confident that his knowledge of planning and technique can help to take them to the next level.
The purpose of this workshop is to have a fully interactive workout planning session with all attending coaches. This means that every coach will leave the workshop with a comprehensive understanding of how to develop sprinters from the ground up – from developing junior development athlete to world class performer. Key issues that will be covered in the workshop include:
- Comprehensive overview of short-to-long and long-to-short planning approaches.
- Day-by-day, week-by-week, period-by-period, year-by-year preparation of training programs that apply to your specific situations.
- Integration of key training components such as weight lifting, explosive power training, aerobic training and recovery-regeneration issues.
- Peaking and taper programs for producing results when they need to be produced.
- Overview of sprint mechanics and technique.
The format of the workshop will also include significant round-table discussions between all attending coaches to ensure that all of the expertise and personal experiences in the room are shared. Please be prepared to bring your training programs so that we can discuss the merits of different approaches.
The two-day workshop will be held from 9:30am to 5pm on both days. The two-day Workshop Fee will be a total of $325.00 Cdn. ($285.00 US). If you wish to only attend one of the workshop days, the fee will be $200.00 CAD or $170 US per day.
Charlie’s seminars in the United States have been priced as high as $550.00 US for a weekend. We have been able to secure a lower price for attendees as Charlie has presented in Vancouver on several occasions and has been greatly received. We are sure you will walk away with your money’s worth.
The firm due date for registration is Monday, November 15th, 2004, so please let us know if you will be attending as soon as possible. If we don’t get adequate registration numbers before this date, we will not hesitate to cancel the workshop.
