TAFWA encourages coaches and teams to create libraries of Track and Field literature that can travel with their teams to practice and competitions. Our sport is rich and alive in literature, history and training expertise. The written word can be inspiring, challenging and give continuity to the baton of Track and Field being passed onto future generations. A book can be a great training partner to what is often a lonely
sport. 2018 was an outstanding year in publishing books of a Track & Field nature.
