We're going to be setting up some training sessions for Section 6 walkers at the Lancaster fieldhouse over the break. If you know of someone that might be interested, please contact me directly at allen@tothsports.com.

The goal is to get all of the girls (though boys are welcome too) to raise the bar in Section 6 to become more competitive at the state level. I also believe that comaraderie is hugely important in all aspects of our sport, at least until you toe the line!

I hope to post the dates and times on this thread as soon as we get them down.

Cheers - Allen James

Allen James (Two-time US Olympian - 20K and 50K Race Walk) will be offering a free two session clinic, courtesy of Toth's Sports. These clinics were also made possible by Lancaster High School's Morgan Staskiewicz and throwing coach Jim Patterson (formerly with Grand Island).

Two Day Schedule:
12/26 – 3pm to 5pm – Lancaster Fieldhouse - Warmup, drills and “Rhythm” workout – 3 x 100m, 200m, 300m with 100m easy between, followed by analysis.
12/27 – 8:30am to 9:30am - meet at Amherst Bike Path Trailhead (Amherst Northtowns (Pepsi) Center – group distance workout – 8K (5 miles) easy. Dress warm. Coaches are welcome and encouraged to run along if they so choose. There is a small chance for snow, but my old coach used to say "Oak trees don't grow in a greenhouse."

If you have any questions, please e-mail me at allen@tothsports.com.

At this point our Thursday morning session probably won't be outdoors as I had hoped. We may have to cancel this session altogether and most definitely if travel advisories are posted.

Lancaster Field House - this afternoon at 3pm. We will be there early, so athletes should be there and ready to start at 3pm.

My cell phone is 716-861-0789 - if you have athletes that would like to attend and you haven't already contact me, please do so.

Thanks - Allen James

We had a fantastic two days of workouts this week with seven walkers from four different schools. Thank you Lancaster coaching staff for opening up your facility for our sessions. A special thanks to Lancaster volunteer Morgan Staskiewicz for helping coordinate the event.

The most encouraging part in knowing that 5 of the 7 are Sophomores. Watch out Tina Weber, it will soon be time that the 7:01 gets removed from the Section 6 books.

Next stop - working on the officiating!
