We are thankful this holiday for you, our readers, and are grateful for your belief in our mission to support, unite, inform, inspire, encourage, and empower women coaches at all levels of our sport.
We are pleased to announce the addition of Amy Yoder Begley to the WRCC's Committee. As a woman who has run at the high school, college, international and Olympic level, and is now the coach of the 21,000 plus Atlantic Track Club, Amy will bring to the WRCC a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. We are so excited to have her join our efforts to get more women involved in the coaching profession.
The next WRCC Newsletter will come out on December 6th. The topic will be "Running in College". What is a high school coaches responsibility in the running future of her athletes? What does an athlete need to be eligible to run in college? What core classes does she/he need to take to be eligible? How can a coach help her athletes navigate this process? We will also look at the recruiting process, and talk with a former college coach to get her perspective.
We are excited to announce the the WRCC will hold a session at the Nike NW Track and Field Clinic on January 11th and 12th at the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton Oregon. Our session will be on Saturday, January 12th. A panel of women coaches will talk about their coaching philosophies, share their experiences as women coaches, discuss topics ranging from "how to build a team" to "planning out your season through periodization". An exciting group of women coaches will be announced in the next few newsletters. More information can be found at www.trackclinic.net
