TOP CLINICS are performed around the US upon request. If you like us to come to your state and conduct our clinic we'd be happy to discuss your needs and present a proposal. It would include scope details, expense reimbursements and an option for distant learning as follow up. We have done 6 hour day clinics for older athletes and 3 hour for 3-5th grades. We are flexible, creative and skilled at communicating and breaking down the game. 

PRIVATE COACHING WORKS Private coaching has proven to be the single most effective way to improve your game. Private coaching facilitates dramatic improvement in skills and performance, which translates into a far more successful and fulfilling athletic career. Through private coaching a young person or adult will benefit from an increased level of confidence and mental awareness, in addition there are physical benefits of improved conditioning, better balance, and enhanced overall athleticism. The result is a fun experience giving participants a role model that is focused on setting goals and making satisfying achievements in other areas of their lives. Private coaching also provides a mental break from a stressed filled day and can give you a life relationship with sports.
