Hi John,

I was the head strength coach for our national mens wrestling program leading into Beijing. After the games - I was offered a S&C position at a local private boys school. As part of the job I teach a fitness/S&C course. Last year was just grade 11's- this year I'm also starting grade 12. I was pretty much given free reign to design my own course, and I pretty much taught quarter-by-quarter exactly as you outlined in your post on the curriculum thread. This up coming year I'll probably do it similar, but will start the cardio earlier in the year as the non-athletes were fairly out of shape.

If it's not too much of a problem - could I ask for a copy of your course curriculum that you offered on the thread. I'm always looking for ways to improve my course, and would like some ideas for the new grade 12 course. I'm thinking of advancing a lot of the concepts that covered in the 11 course to help the kids get ready for university (ie. postural muscles > functional movement screens, etc).

If there is anything I can do for you, please let me know. Thank you for your time and help.

Dear John

I did not want to leave this on the forum because some of our coaches read it. I have had the exact same problem. On the dead lift the form was so bad I used Dartfish to video it and then showed it to the coach. He finally agreed to stop deadlifting. We still go round and round about program design. I have shown him articles, books and research on why I set my program up the way it is. He still does not buy into it. Just be persistant and hopefully it will pay off in the end.

Good luck.
Patrick McHenry
