The Workout Handler and Master Plan Demo
The Workout Handler and Master Plan software is a Macintosh program and can not be operated on a DOS computer. In the next year, developments in the computer industry are expected that will allow this type of software to be operated on an IBM type of machine if it is operating with the OS2 operating system. Please contact the Sports Support Syndicate to learn of the latest developments are release versions and dates.

At the time of this release, the Workout Handler and Master Plan Software is under development. The expected release date is Fall, 1990. The Workout Handler and Master Plan software works with HyperCard, and this program will be updated in the spring or summer of 1990. Our release date for our programs depends upon the HyperCard software.

The Workout Handler and Master plan software programs are written for swimmers and coaches and help plan, organize and evaluate swimming practices.

David C. Salo has evaluated the Workout Handler program, and it is not something that he would use in his practice settings. David does not categorize practices according to Aerobic levels as other coaches are doing. 

The Workout Handler and Master Plan program is not related to the SprintSalo approach. It is another product, written by other authors, and sold by the same company.

The Workout Handler and Master Plan do not instruct the user as to what should be done, and what should not be done. The software is a tool for organization of ideas and practices. The user has to come up with the ideas, create the plans and then the computer software plugs those plans into a schedule and calendar format.

If you would like free Demo copy of the Workout Handler and Master Plan software, please return this original disk to the Sports Support Syndicate after September 1, 1990 and we will send you the demo.

When you send this disk back to the Sports Support Syndicate, make sure that a copy of the files are saved on another disk. Make a back-up copy of the disk, and then send the original as proof of ownership.

The suggested retail price for the Workout Handler and Master Plan software is expected to be $50.00. A deluxe version with full documentation, blank planning sheets, text book, date book past the year 2000 and multiple disk utilities will cost $100.00.
