  • Teach players to play (not A BUNCH OF plays)
    Set plays eventually come to an end or break down. Not the Read & React. I’ll show you how to how to teach your players to create their own possessions without the need for you to call set plays.
  • Play your best 5 any time

    Coaches are always asking, “how do I hold my team accountable?” I’ll show you how to kill the blame game and get 100% accountability out of your team.
