    I really love all you guys are doing for education of coaches in our field. This was a great episode. I was however surprised by Coach Gambetta’s opinion on the USTFCCCA. Having gone through level 2 with USATF on all disciplines besides multi-events and the corresponding certs on the USTFCCCA org I can say the major difference is legislation. USTFCCCA is the college professionals line of communication with the NCAA. I’m sure this is strategic but all of our championships are linked in with TFRRS/DA and USTFCCCA at this point. The practical aspect needs to be included but the “splinter” organization has a legitimate purpose in the college sport. Again, I’m nitpicking but Boo and Mike Corn have done a great job at unifying at least the collegiate end of the sport.
