Coach Tony Miller breaks down SSG where it does not matter how long you have been coaching he makes it easy to understand the value of SSG. I recommend this to any one who is trying to make their practice more competitive. It’s a sure winner.

This was a very informative course. Coach Miller does an excellent job of teaching SSG's and the benefits of using SSG's in practice. This course will help my coaching and our team by being more efficient, using game-like situations, and reinforcing incentives and consequences. Highly Recommended!!!
