Jan 31, 2010Testimonials to Mike Pellet’s Coaching Experience and Results “I was a distance/mid-distance/sprinter and coach pellet was the throwing and jumping coach, but he would always somehow make a way to be cheering me on or help with anything requested of him. He always strived to have everyone support the team and work as one unit, but while that he never forgot how to keep u smiling...Thanks Coach!” -Brandon Rzeszuto, Schenectady High School-2009 "Coach Pellet trained me in both shot put, and discus. Although I did not have the build of an average thrower, Coach Pellet helped me obtain skills to beat out the competition. There were many days of consecutive drills such as tedious arm work outs, and hours of not only working on my strength, but my attitude as a thrower. Coach Pellet is not just a tough coach; he is a friend, and a role model." -Marse Pulley, Schenectady High School- 2009 “Coach Pellet gave me the drills and workouts I needed to master my technique in both long and... More > triple jump. I am now in my senior year in high school and a state qualifier in the jumps. I still use the same tools to jump 22ft in long jump and 44ft in triple jump.” -Julian Delgado, Schenectady High School- 2010 “Coach Pellet was an amazing events coach. His workouts were challenging and helped improve your overall performance. As a sprinter and jumper, working with Coach Pellet, I improved greatly and found myself reaching further personal records. Even now, in college, I still remember many techniques that Coach implemented and continue to use them today.” -Joseph Baez, Schenectady High School- Schenectady High School- 2008 College of St Rose, Track and Field Athlete “Coach Pellet gave me many drills to enhance my high jump. Because of coach I made multiple personal records, won a section title and made it to the New York State Championships. Thank You!” -Domo Henderson, Schenectady High School, 2007 "Mike can break down any element of the throwing events to its most basic level, and relay that info to his athletes so they understand. I have continued to send my athletes to Mike for over 10 years now, and each time he works with one of my athletes, I am more and more impressed. He gets results, and gets them fast. I have seen throwers not just increase their distances by a few centimeters, but by meters. He has helped my athletes not only become better throwers, but improved their confidence, their consistency, and shown them what it takes to compete successfully at a championship level. If there is anyone who can show an athlete how to throw far it is Mike. And the best part is, he's a great guy who makes it fun. I can honestly say Mike is one of the few coaches who really gets it! Erik Rokeach President of Hudson Valley Speed Camp Inc. Founder of www.Track-And-Field-Jumpers.com “Mike Pellet is currently the primary throwing coach at Hunter College in NYC. His training methods, enthusiasm and level of professionalism in the sport brings his athletes and fellow coaches to a higher level. Coach Pellet knows how to teach an athlete the techniques needed to succeed, in a way that is simple and understandable. The expectations he puts on his athletes exercises their focus, confidence, work ethic, and patience. These are just some of the lessons provided through his coaching. At the end of the day Coach Pellet’s athletes are not only stronger competitors but better teammates and respectful people. He is a true fan of the sport.” Matthew Devens Hunter College Athletics Administration< Less
