  • "I found so much value in what I learned"

    I found so much value in what I learned. In fact, I immediately tried out some of my newfound knowledge at our team practice. Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedules to share with us. I look forward to learning more from the NFCA in the future. - Lynne Russell, 10U Atlanta Flames
  • "Having access to these successful coaches is invaluable"

    The NFCA does a fantastic job of bringing the highest level coaching talent to the course. Whether you are travel, high school or college, having access to these successful coaches is invaluable. There is a perfect balance of classroom, drills and live instruction. It's very impactful. - Neal Mulford, Atlanta Flames 14U
  • "I came away with 10+ pages of new drills, skills and videos"

    I came away with 10+ pages of new drills, skills and videos to bring back to our players. Easily one of the most best classes I have taken to date. - Tony Mele, Team Worth NC
  • "Your clinic won us several games"

    I recently attended the Birmingham Clinic. It was the best clinic I have ever been to, allowing me to talk to other coaches about philosophies and strategies of the game. I honestly believe that your clinic won us several games. -Mike Davenport, North Georgia College and State University
  • "We could not wait to apply what we learned"

    We felt it was really worthwhile and could not wait to apply what we had learned. When we finally had the chance, it was incredible. We only had three practices to get us ready for our first game, and we were more than ready.
