What It's Like to Attend a Clinic
Wow - It has been a week and I am still excited about the clinic. It was amazing, everything that I imagined and much more. There was never a dull moment. I would advise anyone and everyone who cares about educating themselves and their team to go. The clinic energized me. It was like a renewing of the spirit and mind. It reminded me why I love the sport of volleyball. All the clinicians were great. They were never too busy to answer questions or take pictures. I have already started using some of the drills, the girls love them. Thanks again!”
“The clinic has been excellent! I like that they’re presenting a lot of different sides to the same skills. I really like that they’re emphasizing the fact that there’s no right way to do it, that you need to do what works for your team. Honestly, the amount of information is overwhelming and it just makes me excited to get back into the gym with my kids and implement it!”
"After 39 years of coaching, I needed to stir my mind, learn something new and be challenged as I continue to grow as a person and as a coach. I left the clinic with new energy, great ideas and fresh thoughts heading into this next season."
"We thought the clinic was great! We appreciated the speakers being up close and personal. The coaches kept our attention both days. Not often can you go to a clinic that has three Hall of Fame Coaches to teach, share, and answer questions. Any coach who has the opportunity to attend one of these clinics should spend the money and attend. Every session was well done. Thank you to each clinician!
