The Podium Series Summer Training and Team Building Insight

The Podium Series, where we learn summer training and team building tips from all the coaches who led teams to the 2017 NJSIAA cross country Meet of Champions podium.

The idea for this piece came from Jim Schlentz who traveled around the state the past few weeks interviewing all the coaches. The videos will be released in segments question by question all throughout the rest of August and will be found here linked below.

Topics Covered

Video editing by Robert Kellert. 

Coaches featured: Christian Lynch (Kingsway), James Smirk (Princeton), John Zalot (Hopewell Valley), Nick Baker (Haddonfield), Roy Hamblen (Mendham), Sean McCafferty (Christian Brothers Academy), Bill Clifton (Middletown South), Caitlin Hess (Kingsway), Dana Palumbo (Shawnee), Jenn Buccino (Westfield), and Jim Schlentz (Colts Neck).

If similar answers were given, for the sake of keeping videos at reasonable length, some coaches may not appear in every release but everyone will be featured at some point. After the series has concluded we'll release the full interview with each coach as well. A big thanks to everyone for giving us their time and and insights.
