To: Track Coach/Athletic Director
On March 11th, 2007 there will be a USATF Development Javelin School from Noon to 4pm at A L Johnson HS in Clark, NJ. This is a prototype event in an effort to pass along proven training and technical information that has produced international champions and record holders. The Javelin School will be taught by Jeff Gorski, USATF Javelin Development chairman and coach of many top HS and US Olympic javelin throwers. Jeff had a HS best of over 213' while at Johnson and has coached at HS, college and elite levels with great success. This is a great chance for coaches and athletes to learn from one of the best and really maximise their training and results for this season and the future.
Clinic fee is only $20.00 and includes all instruction, a booklet of drills, training ideas and technical information and a DVD of important technical and training programs.
You can register in advance by mailing the enclosed form back to Jeff or register at the door on the clinic date. Feel free to bring camcorders to record all the topics covered at the clinic and pass this information/email along to any/all HS and college coaches and athletes.This is a great chance to dramatically improve our javelin results at the "grass roots" level and turn the US into the world's best javelin source!
