For our fifth youth sports virtual summit we will continue to offer FREE recorded interviews with amazing guest speakers that will drop in your inbox each day.
Based on feedback we received from our past events, we will now also be offering a LIVE PASS. Recognizing the challenges that many have faced during COVID-19 from a organizational and personal standpoint, we have implemented a pay what you can model, where a portion of the proceeds will be going directly to getting kids back to play.

It’s not rocket science” shows his ability to simplify the issue and speak to and engage people in a way that makes them want to understand and be better for the kids they serve.
