Instructors: Reuben Jones & Boo Schexnayder
The Combined Event Specialist Certification Course (SCC) has been redesigned to include information on designing training for common track and field event combinations (the sprint-hurdle athlete, the sprint-jump athlete, etc.) The course continues its previous focus on the combined events as well.
The Combined Event Specialist Certification Course (SCC) is a detailed, 36 hour course that covers all issues in technical coaching of the combined events, and examines training design for athletes who compete in multiple Track and Field disciplines. Certification by the USTFCCCA is granted for successfully completing the course and its evaluations. The course is illustrated with pertinent, animated take-home video created specifically for this course, to enhance clarity and understanding.
Topics include training theory, periodization of combined event training, biomechanics of the sprint, hurdle, jumping, throwing, and middle distance events, training components, training design and administration, peripheral training concerns, technical models, and technical teaching in the combined events. In addition the course also examines Multievent training, specifically training plans and arrangements for frequent track and field event doubles and triples such as Sprints and Hurdles, Sprints and Jumps, Hurdles and Jumps, etc.
