      some terrific ideas to get me started!  I really enjoyed the games
      approach to teaching drills!
    • Our men's coach was tremendously impressed with the clinic you ran this past weekend. Good job.
    • I was at the super coaching seminar this past Saturday.  Thanks so much, the seminar was awesome.
    • I really enjoyed the clinic - very interesting and very well organized.
    • Thanks again for all the hard work you and your team did for the
      Super Clinic this wknd!  It was great!  Super idea to combine the
      various UW/UM clinics into one, makes a whole lot of sense!
    • I really enjoyed the Sat morning sessions I attended - picked
      up/was reminded of a few games / drills that I'll be able to use with
      the kids at the next practice!
    • I though the two days were superb. What a great idea!  You did a
      wonderful job greeting us first thing on Friday and it just stayed great
      the whole weekend. I would challenge any city in North America to do
      better.
    • Thanks so much for the hard work. The fact that it looked easy and
      went off without a hitch proves to me how hard you worked to make it
      that way.
    • It was a great clinic. Thanks for your organization and hard work.
    • Awesome clinic! I learned a ton.  Thanks for putting the time in.
    • The clinic was excellent, lots of very inspirational speakers with lots of good ideas. Thanks!
    • Thanks very much for having the clinic I found it very useful and I
      have used some of the drills already and the boys have really enjoyed
      them.
    • Clinic was great. SAG is a great day to have it as the clinic is a
      very attractive option on this day. I enjoyed the presenters and
      learned a lot of great drills. I am also happy the sessions will be
      online as I'm sure I will be watching some of them again to remind
      myself of some of the details.
    • Fantastic job!  Can't wait for the video so I can make sense of my notes.
    • Great experience overall.....WELL DONE!
    • Great job on the entire day - I walked away with new tips and
      tricks along with some validation of what I'm doing with my team is the
      right stuff. I look forward to the future clinics and I'm really excited
      to be part of the coaching community again. Thanks so much for a great
      day!
    • I think that the majority of the clinic was fantastic and that it
      was well put together. I definitely learned a TON of stuff which I will
      try to incorporate into the upcoming season and try to keep as a coach
      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.
    • Overall a FANTASTIC 2 days!!  I am a beginning coach (1 spring
      season experience 8 year old boys - now coaching winter) and even the
      higher level clinics had something I could take from it. Great
      presenters, great location, great snacks and lunches and VALUABLE
      information! Well done!
    • Overall it was an excellent seminar with lots of information.
    • Overall...Excellent Observing practices and talking to the local University coaches was valuable to me.  Keep this!
    • Thanks very much I came out of the weekend with a lot!
    • Thanks, overall it was a great experience!
    • The clinic was fabulous... easily the best run and most
      informative I have ever been to. In fact as a first time basketball
      coach it was actually quite inspiring. Well done!
    • The clinic was well-organized and well worth attending. Good job!
    • This clinic was absolutely fantastic. You absolutely have to run
      it again, during a tournament weekend, with all those experienced
      University coaches!!! I cannot say enough about how good it was. I also
      coach Hockey and soccer and you can relate a lot of those drills to
      other sports.
    • Very good clinic. Attended only Fri. Cannot comment re Sat. Thanks Basketball Manitoba!
    • Very informative 2 days....good lunches, good prizes and interesting presenters! Looking forward to next year’s clinic!
    • Very informative. Answered many questions. Now I know of ways to make practices more creative.
    • Very well organized, good selection of coaches and topics.
    • We thank WMBA and Basketball Manitoba for giving us (community coaches) the tools to coach to our kids.
