“I attend numerous clinics and final fours etc. This was the most informative event I have ever attended. The Symposium created a very comfortable atmosphere in which we had an opportunity to share information” – John Miller, Richmond“I would like to thank you for allowing me to be a part of the best personal development event that I have ever been involved in. The information was great, but the quality of people that I had a chance to be around was even better. You all have put wind in my sails. I am even more excited about what the future holds for me than ever before.” – Jerome Tang, Baylor“This was BY FAR the best coaching clinic that I have ever attended! I’ve been to around fifteen clinics in the past ten years, anywhere from the large scale “shoe company” clinics to the smaller, more local ones, and none of them held a candle to the knowledge that I felt I gained this past weekend. The knowledge and the interaction with successful coaches who I was able to speak with will no doubt last a lifetime.” – Jon Mock, Grand Valley State

“For one weekend, we were all on the same team exchanging ideas and practices to make each other better.” – Comment from Evaluations
