5.0 out of 5 stars Small and Precious, December 5, 2004
"Training Games" is a rather tiny publication compared to others relating to the same topic, but it is loaded with great ideas! It is to the point. Everything relates to practice and there is no wasted page! I used this book over and over and still discover new things. It also leads the user to create and add own ideas. Invaluable for any teacher and coach! It is money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great coaches tool !!!, April 20, 2002
By 
Lots of fun and useful information. The kids are always asking to play a game or practice one of the techniques found in the book. I have had the book for a year, and there is still so much yet to use! A great tool for finding new and different ways to improve your coaching/training.

4.0 out of 5 stars Immediate Relief for the Humdrummery of Running, November 24, 2006
Training for cross country or distance track events can often become tedious work. Anderson does a great job of providing simple, ready-to-use games and techniques that will help combat this problem. I found many of the ideas useful and easy to use right away. Other ideas were not so adaptable to my team, but I still used the nuggets he have in the book and manipulated them to meet my needs. My athletes responded with enthusiasm. While nothing can take the place of mileage, the mindset an athlete has during the mileage can set the tone for the whole training experience. Although this book may not meet the needs of the reader to a tee, it is broad enough to enable the reader to create his/her own variation on the theme. Solid book for coaches.

A must-have book for any track coach. Lots of fun training ideas that broke the hum drum of running laps. My middle school athletes loved the drills.
