Maybe you didn’t know know this but not only does legendary high school cross country coach Joe Newton work with kids, he is also the author of several books on coaching cross country. Here’s a link to one of them on Amazon. If you search under his name you can find more. They been have been used as a helpful manual by countless coaches to great effect.
Here’s a nice little review of the book pulled from Amazon:
“Joe Newton is the GOLD STANDARD when it comes to coaching high school cross country. Year in and year out his teams challenge for state and national titles. This book is not as good as the “Long Green Line” but that is THE book on high school cross country. This book stands by itself as an excellent, practical guide for coach, fan and runner. It is broken into easy to read sections and full of interesting anecdotes. Joe Newton gives solid insight into his highly successful program.”
