The Regional Development Center

Initially located in the Albergue Olímpico in Salinas, Puerto Rico, was established in 1985 on the initiative of the area representative after an exhaustive perusal of alternative venues (e.g. Mexico City, Havana, Miami) and the availability of the Puerto Rico Olympic Center whose facilities were generously offered to the area grouping by then president, German Rieckehoff Sampayo.

Since then, at least two training courses, of no less than two weeks duration each, have been offered at the Center annually, with the participation of coaches and/or athletes from virtually every country in the North American, Central American and Caribbean area. The center's offerings have been geared towards the coaches of the developing countries of the area, rather than the United States or Canada, though instructors from these two countries are used extensively.

The Development Commission of the IAAF formally recognized the Center in 1987 and has made annual contributions since then to the funding of the programs undertaken at the Center.

The Center was relocated to the Rio Piedras campus of the University of Puerto Rico in 2000 which generously extended usage of its facilities on agreed upon dates, at a modest daily cost per participant with no charges being imposed for the use of supplementary facilities (e.g. track, classrooms, etc.)

The offices of the RDC - which since July of 1998 have been headed by Lenford Levy - are located in the Jardin Botanico, headquarters of the central offices of the University of Puerto Rico.

El Centro Regional de Desarrollo (CRD)

Localizado inicialmente en el Albergue Olímpico en Salinas, Puerto Rico, fue establecido en 1985 bajo la iniciativa del representante del área y después de una busqueda exhaustiva de lugares alternativos (ejem. Ciudad de México, La Habana, Miami) y de la disponibilidad del Centro Olímpico cuyas instalaciones fueron ofrecidas al Area por el entonces presidente German Rieckehoff Sampayo de Puerto Rico.

Desde entonces, por lo menos dos cursos de entrenamiento de al menos dos semanas de duracion, se han ofrecido en el Centro anualmente, con la participación de entrenadores y/o de atletas de virtualmente cada país en la zona norteamericana, centroamericana y del Caribe. Las ofertas del Centro se han engranado hacia los entrenadores de los países en vías de desarrollo del área, no asi a los Estados Unidos o Canadá, aunque utilizan a los instructores de estos dos países extensivamente.

La Comisión de Desarrollo de la IAAF reconoció formalmente el Centro en 1987 y ha hecho contribuciones anuales desde entonces a la financiación de los programas emprendidos en el Centro.

El Centro se reinstalo en el campus de Río Piedras de la Universidad de Puerto Rico en el año 2000 quien generosamente extendio el uso de sus instalaciones en fechas convenidas, bajo un modesto costo diario por participante sin las cargas que son impuestas para el uso de las instalaciones suplementarias (ejem. pista, salas de clase, etc.)

Las oficinas del CRD han sido dirigidas desde julio de 1998 por Lenford Levy y están situadas en el Jardin Botanico, Sede Central de la universidad de Puerto Rico.
