"Phil, I wanted to thank you for putting on the clinic this past Sunday morning. The kids learned a lot and had a ton of fun.  I know they loved the game of MAD!! I was also able to pick up on a number of teaching/coaching techniques that will be very helpful to me.  It was a great event!! Your coaching staff was awesome--they did a great job of teaching while also connecting with the boys.  I just opened the video and the kids will love it!! Thanks again."
