      for future teams as well.
    • I thought this clinic was an excellent opportunity to improve my
      understanding of the game and advance my abilities as a coach. There
      were so many drills and ideas that would be useful teaching points at
      practice that I don't think I will be able to stuff them all into this
      season, however I will try.
