dc.description.abstract The purpose of this investigation was to determine coaches’ perceptions of the best drills and training aids for developing elite sprinters. Through various books and publications, numerous workouts, drills, and training aids have been suggested. An understanding of which methods successful coaches are actually using and the perceived effectiveness and utility of these drills and training aids, however, has not been investigated. In this instrumental case study, interviews with track coaches were used to compare and contrast the different drills and training aids used in their speed development programs. Findings of this study may serve future coaches and athletes by helping them choose the most effective drills and training aids for the production of elite sprinters.
