Part 1 of an interview with coaches Kari Strang, Eric Dettman, and Thor Esbensen.
Top Oregon high school cross country and track and field coaches Kari Strang (Summit HS), Eric Dettman (Lincoln HS), and Thor Esbensen (Ida B. Wells HS) talk about the demands and challenges of being a leader to both a team and a staff.
The trio talk about what they feel they do well, and honestly assess what they need to do better, about how they structure their season, and how they create a positive team culture. We learn that success as a high school head coach isn't just about winning. Listen to this fascinating conversation with three brilliant coaches who love what they do and want to share their coaching passion with you.

The Women's Running Coaches Collective is a talented group of women coaches who have come together with the mission to change the landscape of coaching as Title IX changed the landscape for girls and women in sports. This grass roots organization was created to encourage and support women who want to become coaches, or women who are currently coaching. Our WRCC website includes interviews, articles, videos, "Ask A Coach", regional 'Chapter' communities and much more. The WRCC is a collective to support, unite, inform, inspire, encourage and empower women coaches at all levels of our sport. Come join us today and help change the landscape of women in coaching.
