I want to thank all of you that have signed up for our blog. I know I have met many of you at conferences, clinics or camps and want to let you know where I will be the rest of the summer.
One of my favorite things about working camps or attending clinics or presenting at conferences is getting a chance to meet and network with coaches and athletes from different parts of the country. Whenever I present at conferences, I always walk away learning from the coaches I met at the clinic.
I just returned this weekend from working with Dr. Joe Eisenmann, who is the Director of High Performance and Education at USA Football. USA Football will soon be releasing lots of great educational content on teaching proper movement skills to young athletes. The goal is to teach kids these movements at a young age and how those skills can translate into the kids becoming faster, stronger, reducing the chance of injury and becoming an overall better athlete. I was honored to be invited to coach the young athletes on learning the Fundamental Movement Skills.
I want to send you my summer schedule I will be attending conferences, presenting at them and attending some AAU basketball, USA Basketball and NBA Summer League events. If you plan on attending any of the conferences or events please stop by and introduce yourself. I’d love to connect and network.
