    I would be interesting in seeing hurdles from Ange. Almost a mirror of the sprints with focus on hurdles (fundamentals-techinque, GPP, SPP progressions etc).

    CF done specifically for hurdles is something that I have wanted to see as well.

    Eg
    Level 1 coach - has produced a 11 - 11.25 runner (male) or Female equivalent time
    Level 2 coach - has produced a 10.75-10.99 runner
    Level 3 coach - a 10.50 - 10.74 runner
    level 4 coach - a 10.25 - 10.49 runner
    level 5 coach - 10,00-10.24 runner
    Master coach - sub 10

    These would also be shown under their Names on the forum.
    IMO this would only take CF.com in a direction that would not be beneficial. Every trainer in the world now, it seems, is trying to create their own certification program and I think that it could potentially take away from the site. Also, without Charlie's approval how could any exam be made, justified, etc.

    Just my .02 cents

    However, I have this idea that I could hold another workshop where Forum members could meet face to face and discuss training. A number of people could do presentations, with breakout groups to follow. The presentation would be on their use and interpretation of Charlie's concepts. Let me know if there is any interest in this idea.
    I love the idea of CF based presenters followed by breakout groups. One major problem with conferences is that there is never a chance for specific discussions to take place, and since there would at least be common agreement on a similar underlying philosophy, these discussions could be of a higher quality.

    This is a terrific idea. If there's anything I can do to help, let me know.

    All sounds great.

    I wish for more money to buy all the juicy products I don't, oh and more time to watch them.
    Continuing to learn is one thing in life that has to continue.

    NumberTwo,
    Do you have any more information on this event? I saw on James Smith's website that he is tentatively booked for this in May.
    I would definitely consider making a trip from the UK for something like this.
    Thanks

    I agree, this would only benefit those in Metro areas, Universities etc.
    What about the High School coach who would never see such speed?

    While those who through recruiting, large program etc. has access to runners with natural speed, thus making the differerent levels meaningless.
