- Is your son or daughter in a high school or middle school track/cross country program where you feel he/she is not getting the attention and proper coaching he/she deserves?
- Do you believe your son or daughter has talent but the current school’s coach is not bringing it out of him/her?
- Is your child trying to walk onto a Division I, II, or III Collegiate track or cross-country program and needs a program and training regimen that gives him/her the best chance to make the team?
Coach Allison takes his talent and expertise of working with young runners since the late 1990s and is able to create the proper plan to get your son or daughter where he/she wants to be. This isn’t a push them until they break sort of program, but one that takes into account your child’s age, current ability, strength, body composition, and running goals he/she is trying to achieve. Every program Coach Allison designs is unique to that certain runner. There is no cookie-cutter approach in how Coach Allison gets your high school runner to reach his or her goal. Coach Allison takes his years of coaching, running, training, and thinks out of the box when necessary to attain the results his athletes are striving for.
Although there are a multitude of factors that play a part in your child’s athletic improvement, Coach Allison feels very confident in his ability to assist your athlete drop his/her times from the previous season. Barring injuries or illness to your athlete, Coach Allison’s approach to always train with goals in mind helps guide his athletes in a step-by-step approach that is nearly fool proof. There is a reason and a plan in everything Coach Allison does when he is coaching your high school or pre-collegiate athlete.
Your teenage or youth runner will do more than just run when he/she is with Coach Allison. He/she will start to understand and learn about the following:
- Race strategy
- Proper pacing
- Proper form
- Reasoning and rationale for particular workouts
- Goal Setting and adjusting his/her goals
- A true love of the sport
- Basic scientific and physiologic knowledge in regards to running
- The value of rest, training cycles, and learning when to peak at the right time.
