USATF Level 1 Coaches Clinic at University of Portland 28 Feb - 02 Mar, 2014

Information and Registration

Level 1

The Level 1 program covers all events in a rudimentary manner by emphasizing fundamentals, rules, safety/risk management, and instruction techniques.

The Level 1 Course prepares an individual to coach at the junior high school, high school, club, and junior age division level.

Level 2

One of the objectives of the Level 2 program is to prepare coaches to go from the general body of knowledge provided in the Level 1 program to a specific body of knowledge covering a particular event group. The Level 2 program covers advanced sport science concepts and training principles.

The Level 2 Course prepares an individual to coach at the collegiate level. Event groups include: Sprints/Hurdles/Relays, Jumps, Throws, Endurance and Combined Events.

Level 3

The Level 3 program covers “cutting edge” sport science concepts and event-specific knowledge from a scientific perspective.

The Level 3 seminar prepares an individual to coach at the national/international level. PLEASE NOTE: Level 3 seminars are open to anyone wishing to attend (prior USATF courses are not required). However, in order to obtain Level 3 Coach status, a participant must already be a Level 2 Coach.
