Coaching the Sprint Hurdles
Article By: Tony Veney
One of the difficult areas to manage as a coach is the development of your sprint hurdlers (110 meter High Hurdles / 100 meter High Hurdles). The books out there will give you plenty of technical things to learn and apply, but what I want to touch on is the practice session itself. One of the biggest problems continues to be the fact that we take our best sprinters and sprint them and then take our second-tier sprinters and hurdle them.

Beginning Hurdle Training

Article By: Fred Almond
Suppose you are a young coach with little track & field experience. In your pre-season meeting with your other coaches--three or four, some "walk-ons" (maybe you are a "walk-on"). It is discovered that last year's hurdle coach won't be back and no one wants to coach the hurdles. The jump coach, shot put and discus coach, and the distance coach all give convincing arguments why they can't coach hurdles, and why you should coach hurdlers since you have the sprints and relays. Disarmed, you reluctantly agree to take on the responsibility.

Coaching the Hurdles
The Role of the Hurdle Coach
Article By Tonie Campbell: Olympian

The role of the coach is to generate enthusiasm, discipline, concentration and dedication for the training regiment. The coach must act as a barrier, during practice, for outside contaminates and interference's. The coach must also be counselor, friend, disciplinarian and savior at any given time. Creating a mentally harmonious workout environment is the coach's highest priority in order to get the most out of the athlete.
