USTFCCCA Announces Technical Symposium Series Presented By Rekortan

The U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) is excited to announce the USTFCCCA Technical Symposium Series Presented by Rekortan, a virtual learning experience featuring a Who’s Who of renowned coaches as speakers.

The USTFCCCA Technical Symposium Series Presented by Rekortan gets underway on Tuesday, November 2 and will run weekly – Monday through Thursday – until Thursday, December 3, each night beginning at 8 pm ET. Seminars will be conducted through Zoom.

That’s nearly five full weeks of incredible learning opportunities for an all-inclusive price of $125 per person – which means, individuals can attend as many sessions as they wish at no additional cost. Coaches will also have an opportunity to win free entry through various social media contests over the next few weeks!

This opportunity is open to ALL coaches – members and non-members, alike.

While we’re still finalizing a dynamo lineup of speakers, we can tell you that a different speaker will be featured each night from a different event area. And we’re not just narrowing the scope to sprints, hurdles, jumps, throws and endurance events: We’re breaking it down to the micro level by specific events within those areas. For example, a different coach will educate his or her peers on the 100 Meter Hurdles, 110 Meter Hurdles and the 400 Meter Hurdles and so on.

Here are just a few of the coaches we have lined up to speak so far!

  • Amy Deem, Miami (Fla.) – 100 Meter Hurdles
  • Lance Harter, Arkansas – Arkansas Women’s Distance Training
  • Jud Logan, Ashland – Hammer Throw
  • Dennis Shaver, LSU – 400 Meter Hurdles
  • Caryl Smith Gilbert, Southern California – Short Sprints
  • Dave Turnbull, Summit HS – Triple Jump (High School)

More information regarding the schedule is forthcoming.
