There is very good content in here. I enjoyed the course. It was a zoom presentation to a group of coaches. Some context is lost for those who purchase this course. For example, it seems to indicate in the videos that content will be provided to those attending the webinar. But this course on coachtube does not provide any accompanying content. It would be nice if they did.

Excellent info for anyone looking to learn more. Highly recommend Joan Oliva's course as he proves through his own training how important this type of training is for players in every stage of their careers BUT especially at the youth level.
