VS Athletics Track & Field Super Clinic, January 22, 2011-Be there! release, note by Larry Eder

VS logo.pngFor more years than I can remember, there was a great track & field coaches clinic in Palo Alto, CA. The spirit of that clinic is with this one, and it has moved to Sacramento! I heartily encourage all who can to attend.

The great thing about clinics is the free expression of ideas. The clinics are great, as one can learn many things. I learnt more, however, sitting down, picking a few friends brains after a clinic like this!

I am very proud of our friends at VS Athletics, from Billy Smith to Peanut Harms, one of my spiritual mentors (along with Jan Johnson and John Powell). The best thing about our sport are the great people involved.

Our dear friend, Rick Milam would have loved this one! If you live on the West Coast, get there by train, plane or even, hybrid vehicle
