Continuing Education Credits For RRCA and USAT Coaches Announced for 52nd Annual RRCA Convention
Lakeland, FL - This year the RRCA will be offering 2 hours of CEC’s for coaches during the general sessions at the 52nd Annual RRCA Convention, which means there will be no charge for the Continuing Education Classes for paid convention attendee’s. These CEC’s are approved for both RRCA and USA Triathlon Certified Coaches.
If you are an RRCA Certified Coach or USA Triathlon Certified coach in the area that would like to attend the CEC classes only, the cost will be $50 per class. Non convention attendee’s are also permitted to purchase tickets for the individual luncheons with guest speakers Pat Williams and Keith Brantly or the Saturday Night awards banquet with keynote speaker Bill Rodgers.
Classes offered for CEC’s:
Injury Prevention/Shoe Fit Clinic
Presented by Tim Hilden, MS, PT, ATC - Tim is a member of the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine team since 1998, and the Boulder Center for Sports Medicine played a vital role in the development and testing of Somnio running shoes. Tim is a physical therapist, athletic trainer, and exercise physiologist. In addition to his physical therapy patient load, Tim specializes in walking and running gait analysis. Tim will outline common injuries related to shoe fit and how the proper shoe can prevent injuries and help you run more efficiently along with other injury prevention tips.
Nutrition, Supplements, and Performance Enhancers
Presented by Cassie Dimmick MS, RD, LD - You have all heard the advertisements from companies that make performance enhancing products. “Drink this and you will run faster, eat this and you will get a PR”, and the list goes on. A lot of times the marketing of these products is way ahead of the science, which makes it confusing. In this informative class, Registered Dietitian and Board Certified Sports Nutritionist Cassie Dimmick will explain what you really need to be eating and drinking to perform at your best. She will go over the science behind the recommendations, along with false claims that are out there. Don’t waste your time and money on a product that is just hype! Learn from a sports nutrition expert what you need to include, and what you can leave out, in your training and racing diet to perform at your best.
