  • “THE NFCC Coaching Classes are in depth ..."

    "The NFCC Coaching Classes are in depth and great opportunities to dive in and learn from the best coaches in the country. Even though I have taken most classes multiple times I continue to learn as each instructor has a different way of presenting things and I try to take the best that each instructor has to offer." - Sean Hall, Midwest Speed
  • “I highly recommend the NFCC 405 class ..."

    “I highly recommend the NFCC 405 class for any coach who is serious about taking their game to the next level. The class was very collaborative and interactive. Each instructor was motivating, informative and spoke openly about their own offensive philosophies and strategies. This class made me grow as a coach and I look forward to taking more like this in the future.”
  • ““I LOVED this course."

    “I LOVED this course. This was my first course, and I got so much out of it. The instructors were great on all levels. The instructors did a great job asking if there were topics we wanted covered. They left no stone unturned. I cannot wait to take my next course! Thank you!”
  • “This course was so much fun ..."

    “This course was so much fun and kept your attention. I am now a four star and this course has so much information that I will DEFINITELY use... Loved it!!!!”
  • “I really enjoyed the course ..."

    “I really enjoyed the course and felt like I learned a lot of things I was able to implement in practice this week. It feels good to have that rush of passion when you are in a season instead of over Christmas break. Very good stuff!”
  • "These webinars were times that I looked forward to"

    "This is one of the best courses (408) I have taken. The close interaction with not only the instructor coaches but also with those coaches involved with the event makes this a superior offering among some very fine NFCC courses." - Steven Richards
  • "As a young coach beginning my college coaching career ...”

    "As a young coach beginning my college coaching career, NFCC 401 really gave me a great base of knowledge to take with me for the rest of my career. Being able to learn from experienced coaches who have dealt with building team cultures, managing their budgets, and managing their programs was such a great way to start my learning journey within the NFCA. I would have never thought about some of the topics that we covered, but I’m so glad that I was able to learn these tools to implement both on and off the field to get the most out of our student-athletes and to help them succeed on the field and in life." - Mary Murray, Assistant Coach, Rowan University
