Good to see a Pro Running based coach getting recognised as the ATFCA still has a pulse

Last night at the ATFCA (SA Branch) AGM, five coaches were awarded life memberships of the local branch. Included were myself and John Hodge (pictured below). The ATFCA is currently struggling losing over 2000 members since AA's coaching registration system got up & running.

I accept there was a time when a pro-running coach was the 'anti-christ' as far as the ATFCA was concerned, but times have changed and the ATFCA looks to pro running as a fantastic vehicle for athlete & coach development.  

I don't know what the main issues are in respect to why AA has frozen out the ATFCA but I do have faith in the organisation to deliver quality coaching programs and coaching information in the form of it's newsletter, magazine & the national coaching congress.  The ATFCA has an insurance policy exactly the same as AA's and in my view the membership remains value for money....otherwise I would have ditched it by now.

The 2015 congress will be in Adelaide on October 2nd to 4th October 2015. So if you are not a member of the ATFCA and you are a coach, I recommend you join up and get along to the congress in Adelaide next year.

Recently the ATFCA became affiliated with Fitness Australia as an approved Continuing Education Provider. The president of the ATFCA, Dennis Goodwin discusses ATFCA's involvement with Fitness Australia in this month's ATFCA NEWS. Basically it means that fitness professionals can earn Continuing Education Credits by attending ATFCA courses.

By the way just to show the ATFCA's willingness to embrace the pro's over the last few years, I'm not the first pro-running base coach to receive an SA branch life membership - Frank McHugh is a previous recipient of an ATFCA SA Branch life membership and Frank was at the AGM last night.

hey congrats
as a pro runner with a coaching pedigree of bill ross and keith patching
we now know why they did somethings
wind sprints for athletes as tempo and those out of form = getting leg speed back
block starts in the last month ++ = developing strength/speed
only look after athletes who look after themselves = lessons in life
competition in the stable and out of stable = he only way to develop winning form
respect your coach and your fellow athletes

well done John and Paul

Bill Ross and Keith Patching - SA coaching royalty.

Their legacy are the coaches currently with the SAAL who benefited from the wisdom of Bill & Keith.
