Do you like what you’ve read here about the Hustle & Attitude philosophy? Are you a coach or administrator in a youth recreational sports league?
Starting in December 2015, I have put on coaching clinics for the BCNaz Kidz recreational basketball league and the Flag Football Fanatics flag football league in Ohio.
BCNaz Kidz Basketball
The Beavercreek Church of the Nazarene runs a fantastic youth recreational basketball league. I have put on two clinics for coaches in the league. Each coach left with a 15-20 page handout and their notes from a 1-hour presentation. The clinic was organized into 4 quarters and covered:
- 1st Quarter – Planning & Running Effective Practices
- 2nd Quarter – Making Line-Ups & Managing Games
- 3rd Quarter – Dealing with the Kids
- 4th Quarter – Dealing with Parents
On a scale of 1 (Not Useful) to 5 (Incredibly Useful), the 2015 clinic had an average response of 4.16 and the 2016 clinic had an average of 4.44.
Flag Football Fanatics
The Flag Football Fanatics league is one of the largest NFL-affiliated flag football leagues in America. With leagues in the Cincinnati, Dayton, and Columbus areas, thousands of kids have had a positive experience in their league. My sons played in the league for four seasons and I coached all of them plus another at the request of parents whose sons had played on our team the year before. Like the BCNaz Kidz clinics, this was organized around the same four quarter format. In addition, coaches received a 20-page color spiral-bound handout with notes from the clinic and several pages of drills they can run in practices. I also offered coaches a custom playbook that served my teams well during our time in the league. See the Testimonials page for a quote from the director of Flag Football Fanatics concerning the clinics. I’ve now completed three rounds of clinics providing instruction to almost 250 coaches in the Flag Football Fanatics league!
