Feedback from Past Participants:

"This is a great course for helping veteran coaches re-analyze what they are currently doing and great for young coaches to learn about all the 'little things' it takes to be successful." 

 "This class was very well constructed and allowed me to expand my coaching thoughts and ideas beyond what I ever imagined. It took a little getting used to being an on-line course, my first one, but everyone was very helpful and this on-line course was well designed and easy to get used to."
