WHAT THE COACHES ARE SAYING

“The Coach Forum has allowed me to expand my coaching knowledge by giving me the tools, examples, and encouragement I need to be a successful coach. I was reminded I wasn’t alone in my coaching journey.”

-Nicole Phillips, Springfield High School

“We heard some excellent speakers on diverse topics! It was also good to meet other educators and coaches from around the area to share ideas. This will be of great benefit to our program in the coming months.”
