Learn more about Sam

Welcome to SmartercoachingLLC

So I have decided to use SmartercoachingLLC as both a company to coach people to meet their running goals and to offer my expertise in educating coaches. Going forward SmartercoachingLLC will have the following offerings.

Coaching Distance Runners

25+ years ago Chief Running Officer Sam Callan started coaching distance runners under the guidance of Olympian Jeff Galloway. Since then he has coached hundreds of runners to reach their goals.

coaching education/Development

Sam has over two decades of experience in delivering education directly to coaches.

This area will focus on organizations to deliver in-person coach development workshops. SmartercoachingLLC also partners with the US Center for Coaching Excellence to host a monthly podcast for coach developers.

SmartercoachingLLC also has a monthly newsletter that you can subscribe to on the Contact page. In the near future SmartercoachingLLC will launch continuing education courses for coaches needing continuing education credits.

Youth Sports

This section will deal with youth sports, multisport participation, sport sampling and the detrimental side of early specialization.
