“Finally, a book that integrates what youth track and field is all about – health, fitness, enjoyment and personal development of children. This is the absolute best guide for parents whose kids are already involved or want to get involved in track and field I have ever seen. You will not find a better or more understandable guide. This book motivates while it educates. In short, in my 20-plus years in track and field this is the finest book of its type.”
