    Well, one thing I can say for Salazar....he is a USATF Certified Coach, which SJ is not, even though he claims to be.

      Oct-2004

       

      Cert# L1-04-2419

      Experts said the world is flat

      Experts said that man would never fly

      Experts said we'd never go to the moon

       

      Name me one of those "experts"...

       

      History never remembers the name of experts; just the innovators who had the guts to challenge and prove the "experts" wrong

        Sorry princess, but I am....

         

        You say lots of things you can't prove.  You're not on the list.  Perhaps for once you can provide some data.

         

        MTA:  You look expired, buddy.  I mean, I know you're certified, just not by the USATF, which you couldn't even spell right.

          Given fact that I don't teach sprinting as USATF teaches it, doesn't mean much to me actually....

           

          Besides, the certification doesn't have any expiration date on it....

          Experts said the world is flat

          Experts said that man would never fly

          Experts said we'd never go to the moon

              Cool list.  Joe Vigil is on it.  So is Greg McMillan.  Kevin and Keith Hanson are there.

               

              No Robert Vervloet.  Currently the best we can say is that he was a certified USATF (not USTAF as he seems to have plastered all over the place) coach.

                  Unless there is a difference between certification and registration, in which case it's a wash.  But you'd think SJ would know and would have pointed this out if it pertained to him and he'd been through it.

                   

                  Calling himself USTAF certified is still funny.

                    Yeah, and funnier even that he was able to make a thread about Salazar about him. 

                      Guys which page are we looking at? Is this SJ?

                            I don't work with the clinic anymore, the owner sold it...

                              Sounds like the certification expires every 4 years.

                               

                              ETA: Ah, what I was lookg at is for instructional coaching certification anyway.  It looks like simple coaching registration is the 2 year cycle thing.  Well, there ya go.
