"Conversations about Coaching" Series

The purpose of these "conversations" is to share knowledge, experiences, and strategies, and to collaborate with coaches from all over the state of MN to build a strong coaching foundation.

We know there are many talented coaches in MN, and we also know that we can learn a lot from each other! So, let’s work together to create healthy environments for all involved in the game.  

These sessions are FREE, VIRTUAL, and only scheduled for a 1/2 hour each!
