More About Coach Jonathan

While I specialize in Hurdles starting at ages 12 through and into college and masters, I do work with all sprinting and relays from the short sprints into the 800m. I have spent the last several seasons at the high school level as a hurdle coach and splitting head coach duties overseeing Central Coast Track and Field Club. I have over the last 2 years developed a syllabus and program which allows me to work with all types of athletes who range in in their skill sets. "No Athlete is the same and all learn and train differently, it's important to have multiple resources and abilities to keep from being a cookie cutter coach.

I have been fortunate to have athletes obtain something as simple as a personal best, become league and section champions, and several reach the CIF State Meet, and the USATF Junior Olympics and move on to the college level.

I am a certified USATF Level II coach in sprints hurdles and relays, and NFHS Certified Interscholastic Coach

My athletic highlights range due to my time serving in the Navy Rescue swimmer and Command Fitness Instructor, I was always involved in Track from an early age competing in the sate Hershey Track and Field meets, to playing Rugby for 11 years while serving, finding my way back to Track and Field 7 years ago and now competing as a masters athlete and being actively involved with USATF.

Initially I start the process of understanding overall goals to be accomplished, from small to large they are all equally important, the options from there are personal coaching or designing a 1 month to 3 month training plan to accomplish the goals of the athlete.

If you are a high school hurdler without a hurdle coach, we would work one on one to work from basic into advanced drills and training covering the different techniques required for both long and short hurdlers creating a dialogue and plan of action with the head coach of your school. "General work with hurdlers to have them training and competing with confidence can range depending on the abilities of the athlete."

If you are out of the local area, video analysis is available and daily feedback will be given.
