The clinic is highly participatory; this is not a "sit and be lectured to" clinic. You will need to come prepared to be introspective and share! The topics covered in the three hour 15 minute are:
Spirit of the Game/Self-Officiating
Coaching Leadership/Transformational Coaching
For the virtual clinic, a Zoom link will be sent a few days before the clinic.
