Learn a teaching progression and methods to correct common sprints and relays errors from University of Arkansas Assistant Coach Doug Case. Using a very simple and straight forward approach, Coach Case takes you through the steps needed to develop proper sprint and relay mechanics.

During a through the technical breakdown of the sprint, Case points out the areas where athletes are most prone to errors and then provides a drill that can be used to correct the problem. You will see:

  • Errors and corrections in the start
  • Errors and corrections through acceleration/maintenance phase
  • Errors and corrections at the finish
Coach Case delivers a thorough breakdown of the start phase. Starting block placement and proper starting techniques are covered, in addition to hand and arm placement and demonstrations on 'what to do' and 'what not to do.' Also shown is a unique way to get your athletes to react to the gun instead of anticipating it!

In the Acceleration & Maintenance Phases of sprint training, Case reveals the most common error to sprinters: "ice skating" or running from side-to-side instead of a straight line. He demonstrates an effective drill to alleviate ice skating at any level.

Get a step-by-step tutorial of the proper execution of the 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m relays. Case shows you the proper form for running the curve and receiving and handing off in each relay. He shows you how to perfect the blind pass for the 4 x 100 and the open pass in the 4 x 400.

Case includes the Razorbacks' practice and meet warm-up. This dynamic warm-up develops proper sprint mechanics and lower body mobility - the building blocks to running sprint events.

Take the guesswork out of fixing common mistakes that cost your sprinters time. Use Coach Case's drills to create fundamentally sound, faster sprinters.

University of Arkansas Assistant Coach Doug Case takes you through a teaching progression for one of the most physically demanding events in track & field; the hurdles. Using a simple, straight forward approach, Coach Case takes you through the drills and teaching points needed to learn the 110m/400m hurdles from start to finish.

Coach Case presents a series of hurdle drills and demonstrations for critical training areas. Dividing the drills into Starting Drills, Sprint Mechanics, Approach Drills, Clearance Drills and Sprinting Drills, Coach Case and his athletes will increase your grasp of the hurdles event.

Athletes demonstrate the drills in a correct manner, and then in an incorrect manner, so you can visually see the difference. As each drill and demonstration is being performed, Case shares his thoughts on the errors and the necessary corrections using his drill sets. Case demonstrates:

  • Errors and corrections in the starts
  • Errors and corrections over the hurdles
  • Errors and corrections at the finish
Coach Case provides a complete technical breakdown of the 110meter hurdles pointing out the areas where athletes make common errors and then demonstrates the drill that is used to correct the problem.

Clear, specific instructions and demonstrations make it easy for you and your athletes to grasp specific concepts such as leg cycling, proper starting position, proper hurdle approach and proper clearance of the hurdle.

As a bonus, Case discusses the 400 meter hurdle event. He shares two drills: the Left Leg Curve Drill and Random Curve Drill, that he uses in addition to the 110 meter drills. Coach Case then points out some errors and corrections i
