In February of 2016, thanks to a generous anonymous donation, SPYB was able to bring in Coach Joe Sottolano to conduct a weekend coaches clinic for our rec coaches at every age level.
Coach Joe talking with our Major and Junior League coaches
The clinic was structured and focused to equip our coaches with specific tools they could use to coach their teams and provide the best possible quality coaching we can provide. If you were able to attend you know how invaluable this clinic was, and we would like to share some of the take-away’s from each clinic. To the right is a list of documents you can download from this clinic:
