Truly enjoyed reading this blog. At the recent USTFCCCA Specialist School in Houston I was part of a group project team in which a few coaches had attended the emerging elite program a year or so ago. I was fortunate enough some seventeen years ago to attend what was then called the Jr. Elite Camp held in CO which staffed Lyle Knudsen and Tony Wells among others. I’m pretty certain things have changed since though I understand conceptually they might be somewhat similar.
I trust you will continue to share your thoughts and even the processes that you find useful for all here to ponder and digest. Though my own path in this sport has met many a zig-zag I always find these discussions able to maintain awareness and help to solidify approaches taken. Positive ones hopefully!
Frank – if you’re reading this, thanks guy for covering my back during those problem solving sessions!
