Vern Gambetta, the founder of the USA Track & Field coaching eduction in the seventies ( I have and still treasure the first coaching manual that he did), will be joining the line-up for the International Festival of Athletics Coaching, to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, October 28-30 at the Glasgow Marriot hotel.

Gambetta has been long time proponent of functional sports training, breaking the activities in all major sports down to their barest essentials and showing both coaches and athletes how to improve their technique, strength and endurance to run, jump and throw. His talks are highly recommended by

Vern was head track & field and cross country coach at University of California at Berkley. He now is working on his true love, track & field, specializing in the heptathlon and the decathlon. Gambetta is also a consulting coaching the Nike Oregon project.

The International Festival of Athletics Coaching is sponsored by the EACA, the European Athletics Coaching Association. We are highly recommending this event!
