ETF-Forward is a information and discussion site for topics related to improving and growing the business of Elite Track and Field (ET&F). The emphasis here is on careful, written communication.

The author (Thomas VanZandt) is a keen observer of the sport, and longtime competitor at many levels, none of them elite. Still, ideas are ideas, and some of them could be good, independent of the name and reputation of their author or messenger.

His recent interest has been in identifying and eliminating structural limitations that prevent the growth of a better professional ET&F product.

Visitors are free to read and comment on the ideas expressed here. Please contact the author, via e-mail or phone, regarding any other matters.
