2. LEVEL 100/200 SUPPLEMENTAL COACHES ED CLINICS
We had a very productive day for our first fall Level 100/200 Supplemental Coaches Ed Clinic. 25 coaches in the Twin Cities spent the better part of the day discussing training, technique, strength, and over all program organization. A big shout out to Coach David Paulson and the folks at Chaska High School for hosting this clinic and sharing some local history with us as well.
I think each attendee found the clinic to be a great way to beef up the foundation of their coaching skills.
CXC will follow up this clinic with one this coming Sunday afternoon in Wausau in conjunction with the Wisconsin HS Coaches meetings, another in the Traverse City area on October 8, and one in Duluth the weekend of October 28. If a clinic comes to your area, please join us.
