I believe that athlete production will not play a part till you get to level 3, or regional. I might be wrong about that. I last talked to Mike Gattone 4 days ago i think, and will probably talk to him on Monday or Tuesday again. If i have more into I will gladly share it.
I do believe that the sports performance course is going bye bye, something I have argued for for a long time. Weightlifters should stick to teaching weightlifting, and not try to show people how to do plyo and med ball workouts when the people we are "showing" probably have more experience doing that then we do.
