Track and Field Omnibook. Second Edition.
Doherty, J. Kenneth
This track and field text is a second edition of the 1971 Track and Field Omnibook, a synthesis of the author's forty-five years experience as a participant in and coach of the sport. Divided into two sections, the text deals with both the event-specific techniques of coaching and the overall development of the coaching role. Part one, "The Human Side of Coaching," traces the development of track and field exercise physiology, the individual psychology of coaching, group dynamics, sociology of coaching, eminent coaches of track and field, and the development of a systems approach to coaching. Section two is divided into three subsections, covering (1) the coaching of field events (high jump, pole vault, shot put, discus, and others); (2) coaching endurance running (essentials of training, training systems, and how to organize one, running techniques, and hints for competition running); (3) coaching sprints, hurdles, and relays. The text concludes with a bibliography of 129 citations. (MB)
