Our favorite post from the past week.

The private World Athletics Center has created some innovate new programs, like the Apprentice Coaches Program, to help advance coaches education.

Coaching Roundtable: Grass Roots Development

So far our first coaching roundtables have gathered some of the world’s best coaches to provide technical feedback emerging international throwers like Julia Ratcliffe and Chris Cralle or training advice like how to implement weightlifting in training. But I want to switch things up for the next roundtable and get some perspective on how we can grow the sport as a whole as well as individual events, a topic which is of great interest to me as I try to replicate the success of the informal American youth hammer project here in Switzerland.
