But, if your situation is anything like mine, you’re not staffed like the football team. You probably don’t have enough equipment to cover your large group of athletes. You may not have access to a track for parts, if not all, of your season. And, if even if you do, they’re probably not going to hold the State Championship at your facility.
You’ve got great kids, but the overall talent level is probably…questionable. So you’ll have to work some magic to make them competitive at the most important meets.
There’s also a good chance your training options are limited for good chunks of the season by uncooperative weather and kids playing other sports during your season.
Despite all these handicaps, you still need to get better results…and you only have a brief 12 week period (give or take) to make it all happen!
It’s fair to say the odds are stacked against you!
As a high school coach, what exactly are you supposed to do?
Well, you can, of course, continue to search for sprints training information online. You’ll find no shortage of successful sprints coaches offering all types of DVDs, manuals and coaching groups. And, no doubt, some of these coaches have resumes extending out the door and down the street.
But here’s the problem:
Nearly all of that information comes from college and professional coaches working in top flight facilities with small groups of highly talented, hand-picked athletes who they control for upwards of 11 months out of the year.
That’s not the world you live in, is it?
Look, many of these coaches are smart people who get great results in their world. But the drills, workouts and progressions they use with their Blue Chip athletes have little specific application to those of us in the ‘Real World’.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have any athletes who are on the verge of dipping under 10.0 in the 100m.
But, I do have athletes who trip over themselves because they can’t skip opposite arm, opposite leg…
Kids who step out of the blocks, stand straight up and start spinning their wheels…
Kids who are so weak they can’t do a pushup or a bodyweight squat past parallel…
So yes, these elite coaches are training the same event groups we are. But, there’s such a wide gap between the experience and ability levels of their sprinters when compared to our sprinters, it’s an apples to oranges comparison.
Keep reading and I’ll tell you exactly how to get eye opening results no matter how stressed your situation.
Because I’ve created a comprehensive program that covers every element of developing high school sprinters, from soup to nuts.
It’s called Complete Speed Training Volume 2: How to Build Champion Sprinters (CST2) and it’s the only sprints resource that simplifies the progressions, cues, workouts and structure of every element of your track season in a way you can apply to your weak, inexperienced high school sprinters.
And make it happen within the confines of your short 12 week high school season.
Now, I should clarify a few things:
In CST2, I don’t dumb things down or spoon feed baby information you can find with a 10 second search on YouTube. Complete Speed Training 2 is not Sprints Training 101.
Because the type of coach interested in this program already understands the fundamentals of coaching. You know what acceleration work is. I won’t waste time spelling that out for you. My focus lies in helping you update and add to your current base of knowledge, giving you an inside look at how successful sprinters are being developed in 2012. To give you some new tools for your coaching toolbox…
Over the course of 11 DVDs, I show you all the skills, drills and progressions I use to develop successful young sprinters. But in a straight forward, simplified way you can teach and your athletes can quickly learn and apply.
Because I leave it all on the table, you won’t finish watching the program and realize you have to buy something else to get the rest of the answers. There are no cliffhangers in CST2.
Here is the program:
If you coach high school or developmental sprinters this is the coaching resource you’ve been looking for. If your eyes light up when discovering cool new drills, cues and workouts or when you uncover new ways to squeeze extra tenths out of your sprinters and relays, CST2 will provide an immediate boost to you and your program.
I get excited when my athletes set new personal bests, whether they’re State Champions or first year freshmen. CST2 will help you make that happen early and often, especially once you start applying some of the strategies most coaches and athletes aren’t using.

Now, you might be saying to yourself,
“Yeah. Yeah. Sounds good. Makes sense. I hear what you’re saying. But… You know. Who is this Latif Thomas guy? Why should I listen to him of all people?”
Fair questions. I’d ask the same thing. After all, there are a lot of scam artists parlaying as real coaches on the Internet, so here are a few details about me so you can be confident I’m not one of them…
My name is Latif Thomas and I’m a high school coach who understands exactly what you’re up against.
Depending on the year and season, I have between 60 and 100 kids in my sprints/hurdles /jumps group.
I have no assistant coach.
I live in Massachusetts so it stays cold until, well, what feels like the week after the State Championship.
I coach at a relatively small (1000 kids) school out in the suburbs (if you catch my drift…)
In the winter, we don’t have a track. So we make it happen in a 30m concrete HS hallway. (Still broke the indoor and outdoor school records in the 4×4!)
And our tiny weight room has the exact same equipment it did in 1970. (Or maybe 1870.)
As you can see, I’m not living in the lap of luxury.
But despite these limitations, my athletes continue to compete for and win Championships year after year.
For example, here are a handful of specifics about my recent coaching background and experience:
2008 MA State Champs – 4x100m
2009 MA State Champs 4x100m & 4x200m
2008 MA State Champs – 4x200m
You get the idea.
But, don’t just want to take my word for it.
I recently purchased your Complete Speed Training Volume 2 program. It is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you so much! I am a first year hurdle coach and your program has answered many questions that I had concerning training/coaching etc. I recently attended the New England Track and Field Clinic. I attended your questions and answers clinic on sprints, hurdles and relays. It was very helpful and informative.
Thank you so much!
I just wanted to thank you again for your work and your resources that you have made available. My team just won our first state title which is also the first boys state championship in school history. I can’t thank you enough for your help. I can’t wait to learn more and keep the titles coming in.”

The New Zealand domestic season is winding up and the athletes I coach have all hit fantastic PB’s to date and I put a great deal of this down to a shift or rather a fine-tuning of my coaching philosophy based on your ideas in Complete Speed Training 2.
To date Complete Speed Training 2 has been by far and away the best investment I have made as a coach (and that includes attending conferences here and abroad run by some of the best coaches in the world).
The results speak for themselves – for example, having a New Zealand 100m junior schoolboy champion from this area is pretty much unheard of, especially given the margin and ease of his victory. So from me and my dedicated group of athletes a huge thank you! ”

I know Complete Speed Training 2 will work for you.
In fact, I guarantee it.
Order Complete Speed Training Volume 2. Watch it. Test it for the next 2 months. If it isn’t everything I say it is, return it within that 60 day window, and I will give you your money back.
No questions asked.
I’m so confident in this program and your ability to get program changing results with it, I will take on all the risk.
There is no other ‘full service’ sprints development program addressing the unique needs of high school coaches and sprinters. That alone is enough to warrant a risk free test drive of the program.
I released the original Complete Speed Training back in 2004. And, as you know, this is Complete Speed Training Volume 2. If Volume 1 didn’t work and didn’t help, I never would have been in a position to create Volume 2.
You’ve read real success stories from real high school coaches whose programs have improved significantly thanks to Complete Speed Training Volume 2.
And if you know how the big Coaches’ Clinics work, you understand word of mouth between event organizers plays a major role in who gets invited to speak. So if this information didn’t work or I did a poor job presenting this information to coaches in a way you can understand and apply, I’d get terrible reviews.
I simply wouldn’t get invited back to speak at various clinics year after year, let alone be allowed to teach Sprints and Relays at a USTFCCCA Track & Field Technical Certification!
Complete Speed Training 2 will work for you and your athletes. If it doesn’t, I’ll give you your money back!
When you consider the about the amount of information you’re getting, you’ll agree it’s a pretty sweet deal.
And remember, if you want to buy any single training DVD for any event, you’re going to pay somewhere between $30 – $50 for each DVD.
That’s just standard. You’ve done your research.
The DVDs in Complete Speed Training 2 aren’t 20 minute clips. They all run between 30 – 60 minutes.
So if you bought them individually, even using the lowest price, you’d pay $330. That gives Complete Speed Training 2 a Real World value of at least $330.
But I’m not going to ask you to pay that.
I want to help you become a more effective coach and I want you to help your kids.
So when you order right now, I’m offering you all 11 DVDs, the manual, the 12 week short sprints (55-200) program and the 12 week long sprints (200-400) program…
…not for $330.
You’ll get it all, risk free, for only…
I’ve stated my case. Now it’s up to you. Either fish or cut bait.
Order Complete Speed Training 2 now and I’ll get it shipped out to you right away.
Of course, you don’t have to order.
You can choose not to do anything at all. You can keep kicking those tires, putting it off until a ‘later’ that will never arrive.
Or you can tell yourself you’re already a good coach getting good results. What could I possibly teach you?
And if you try hard enough, you may be able to justify any of those things for a little while longer.
But, ask yourself this question: If you don’t order, how is this season going to be any better or different than last season?
It’s a bit cliché, but you know how the saying goes:
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
So if you’re willing to accept your present reality, it is your choice. The decision is up to you.
But, if you intend to close the gap on the programs beating you now, you need to take action immediately!
If you’re going to stay ahead of the programs, athletes and relays nipping at your heels, there is no time to waste.
They won’t stand pat and do nothing. In fact, thousands of them are already using this program against you and your kids.
And now that you’ve read this page and watched the videos, the only thing you’ll see at practice are the weaknesses in your sprinters that only you can fix.
Order Complete Speed Training Volume 2, right now, and develop Champion Sprinters this season.
To your success,
Complete Track and Field
