Coaches Clinic

Coaching Clinic 

New to the Mt. Hood event this year!  

The athletes of the World Cup Dreams Foundation will be holding a coaching clinic July 9-10th in Mt. Hood.

Coaches: Take advantage of a unique opportunity to learn from Olympians and World Cup Athletes.  Learn directly and ask questions about how top athletes approach their events- favorite drills, inspection, imagery and mental preparation, warm up routines and race day prep.  What do top athletes think about when skiing fast?  How did they dial in their technique, tactics and execution to get to where they are now? 

It is a rare chance to expand your coaching skills with tips from the best in the sport, while also supporting a great cause.

Scott Macartney, two time Olympian, will be leading the clinic.  Each USST athlete attending the event will also cycle through the group during the two days to give input and answer questions.  Those athletes include Andrew Weibrecht, Olympic bronze medalist among others.

A video analysis session is included, with footage from USST athletes training.

Price of the 2 day Clinic, including tickets, breakfast and lunch is: 

$580 if registered by May 31st ($600 after)

Please contact Scott, for more information, including a discount if your club signs up with World Cup Dreams for the Junior Program.

There will be a max of 10 coaches in the clinic, so register now!

As a high school ofcfiial I have seen the evolution of concern over concussions, and rightly so over the last several years. A release was just sent out 2 days ago by the PIAA, the governing body for school sports in PA. It itemized the rules to be followed if an athlete shows any signs of concussion at all. He/she may not re-enter the game unless a doctor (not a trainer) is on staff at the game and authorizes it. In other words that athlete is pretty much done if the the ofcfiial feels so. I believe this is the right approach. In my 39 years of officiating I've seen some serious head injuries that were not treated with the same caution and could have resulted in tragedies. When I was a football player years ago I suffered several concussions, and went back in the game. I remember that feeling, and it was very unpleasant, but I did what the coach told me to do. This is why informed adults need to be in charge of situations like this, because the athletes will do whatever the coach instructs.

Although some positive eftecfs of running an in school strength program exist, negative eftecfs of having a strength program ran during the school day are abundant. Starting with a glaring positive, all of the benefits of the after school program still exist for those participants. Another positive is that athletes who participate in multiple sports and have limited after school time to participate in S&C will be able to participate; although we must then consider the amount of competing demands we are creating for those athletes. On the flip side, the fact that S&C is now a class that the athletes must take will detract from their high school experience through limiting the diversity in elective classes they take. This is very important because we must consider a job as a teacher being seperate from a job as a coach. There is no question that this time is a valuable experience for the athletes in the school, but equal access should be afforded to the non-athletes in the school. In that system all student's needs could be met with the following premise: Rather than creating workouts and having students complete this pre-written, pre-determined program, which is a process of coaching, a process more relevant to a teacher would be relaying concepts of strength training, fitness, and conditioning and have the students design a program that would help them meet their fitness and performance goals. In this type of class' setting, teaching goal setting, fitness principles, physiological processes, anatomy, physiology, and other fitness principles in an advanced way would strongly benefit every participant and every member of the school community. An individual should seperate a teacher's role from a coach's roll. Roll-out-the-ball weight lifting is an after school activity. By doing what Chelsea is doing we undervalue the roll of a teacher and relay an ugly message to the school's students: That the gymnasium is for athletes, not everyone.
