What is a Coaches Roundtable?
This is a borrowed idea from Northern California. We have all been to many clinics with some fantastic quest speakers (Thanks Tim & LA84) but many times the most valuable information is found during the session breaks and at lunch when all the coaches get together and talk (No offense to presenters). This will be the focus of our roundtable. Coaches talking, asking questions & sharing ideas in a smaller interactive format.

Roundtable Features:
*Guest Speaker Opener – Ron Alice. Long Beach Area Track Coaching Legend!
Head Track Coach: 19 years at USC, 16 years at LBCC, Club & HS Coach
*Everyone is a clinician, everyone is a student.
*Roundtable topics selected by attendees in advance via email.
*All attendees who bring 40 single page “Nugget” copies will receive “A Packet of Nuggets”—a compilation of coaching gems from each attending coach.
*All attendees will receive a ClifBar Goodie Bag.
*Cost for the roundtable discussion is free!
*Please support our host venue (Cirivellos) by purchasing dinner or appetizers & beverages during the Coaches Social Hour
*Event is open to the first 40 coaches who register.

Clinic Entry:
Please bring 40 copies of a 1 page “nugget”. I did way too much copying last year so I need each attendee to bring 40 copies. Bring a great workout, core routine, taper, a summer month block of training, etc. Anything that your feel good about sharing. These nuggets will be compiled during the clinic & given out at the end.
