Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ April 16, 2018 This is an amazing program. I have coached well over 30 years and feel I am a better coach for having watched this. This can serve a great role in making youth sports better.
steve tappmeyer Coach

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ April 16, 2018 Loved the course! There are not very many resources that help coaches engage their athletes beyond the fundamentals of the sport they are coaching. 3Dimensional Coaching has been a great tool in learning to dive deeper into the mind and heart of athletes to give them a better athletic experience.

Rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ March 28, 2018 The content and presentation style is great. Easy to follow and not too drawn out per session. Easy to come back and start if you can only do a bit at a time. Having attended the National Leadership Conference in Atlanta, GA last year, it is reassuring to hear teaching that is consistent between organizations concerning leadership and youth development that is emotionally and neurologically centered vs. physically focused. I look forward to further sessions and learning opportunities.
