Hi Bruce!

Welcome to the world of youth track and field. I'm the Director for a the Mainland Jaguars in La Marque Tx. We're under USA Track and Field. Bruce, the best advise I can give you is to be patient and learn your athletes. Start out easy for the first couple of months. Remind your athletes that winning is great but it's not everything. Don't allow your runners to peak too soon. From Jan- Mar- preseason endurance training. Don't allow alot of speed work, try to get your athletes in shape. Running hills during preseason is wonderful. Basically focus on cardio, the rest will follow. Good luck.
