BSN SPORTS: The Heart of the Game
INTERESTED IN HOSTING A CLINIC?
What Coaches are Saying
"Please continue these clinics. They are wonderful for our growth and development. I even wouldn't mind doing an all day and event and paying for it if it has good speakers and opportunities for discussion. Thank you for doing this."
"Love the learn by doing- should show drills while explaining it save time. Have an example (volunteer) present to demonstrate Speaker comes from the view of the extremely under developed athlete and teaching large groups bigger than 40 kids, more beneficial. Speakers teach towards the Varsity/state 10 group crowd not always realistic in HS Loved the alternatives to the weight room, realistic scenarios."
"Juliann was great! Her presentation gave a lot of good insight and I really enjoyed the fact that she talked through a of the bullet points with us. The drills she demonstrated were a big help as well."
"I really appreciate Nate and Joel coming out for a second time to Boise. It's great to have talented individuals come out and share what they can with the lacrosse community here. I will attend every time I can in the future if this continues as I pick up at least a couple new things each time. I liked the different style this year as it gave an opportunity to see how Nate and Joel coach. I don't have a preference for either one as each style brings different strengths. Thanks again!"

Sports Leaderships Camps Director
I want to thank you both for coming to Boise again this year! It's great to have you guys share your knowledge and ideas. I incorporated a lot of what you covered last year. I'm excited to try out some of the new drills you went over. It's a definite confidence boost to the kids that the drills are worth doing when I tell them who I learned the drills from.
