I went to his clinic last year and then went to this year's the weekend before last.  He was awesome both times.  I thought his book was really, really good.  I've borrowed some of his approach and I'm planning on borrowing a lot more for my next coaching position.
So You are still with us my friend I new you would come back to the goid side lol

Here is the rub:

Youth Coaches want to see HS coaches
HS Coaches want to College Coaches
College Coaches want to the Pro's

Most times youth speakers aren't very good. When Doug & I presented a few years ago, we started out with 25 coaches in the room. Sunday morning we had 100. Usually Sunday morning is a dog, but we actually grew a following. I believe the key was we weren't holding anything back.

That is the key to me. I hate buy the DVD presentations. Those are always worthless.

Honestly I no longer see the value of attending Clinics outside of a Boys Night Out.

If I cant find it here....I typically find it on Hueys. If I cant find it there....I call Michael.  :)

I have been doing the circuit for way more years than I care to admit. I understand how the clinics can seem routine & useless; however there is usually one or two nuggets that make it worth while. Last year for example it was the development of the RPO's & a new way to block naked. Both worked out great. Over the years I have learned a lot in break out rooms & at the mixers that I surely would have missed out on. It isn't  the earth shattering things rather the small things that make a difference.

The first year I did the clinic circuit was in 2005 I think
Didn't think there would be much I could pick up
Boy was I wrong- 200 clinics later, the breakfast, lunch, dinner meetings with coaches and programs
Sat in on at least 300 speaker sessions
Almost always take aways
However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.

Strictly speaking from the youth coach perspective.

If you know nothing....maybe coached one season and want to get better.....is going to your local Glazier Clinic really going to help? Not unless a guy like Cisar is speaking.

For the experienced youth coach sure its valuable....you can apply those nuggets or even a system to what you are currently doing.  Otherwise most all info being presented is flying over their heads a super sonic speeds.

Therefore...whats the point?

The only way to get better is to learn. Especially the inexperienced Youth coach.

Glaziers can be a bit overwhelming for youth coaches. I am more experienced than most youth coaches and sometimes I have no idea what the heck the speakers are talking about. I stay away from scheme stuff and stick to specific position groups and technique stuff. Sometimes the speakers are just bad also and sometimes they are just there to sell. I have no issue with that(the selling) at all as long as they are willing to talk to the people that know the system already. Most of the youth speakers I have listened to might have been good for a new coach but they were a bit rudimentary for me. Really basic stuff. Coaches that would benefit from very basic level material generally don't attend a clinic and I wish Glazier would realize that.

True. But I dont think that happens at Glazier for the inexperienced youth coach. He may not even realize that everything he is learning needs to be dumb'd down.

Maybe that's why Im seeing one too many youth Teams out there that wants to be just like Oregon....and man o man its not a pretty sight.

I have met Joe(technically met him before that), Rob, DC, Jeff, and Tripwire at local clinics. I even met Rob's girlfriend and had dinner with them and Joe. Oh and I introduced Rob to my buddy Chris, who I will hopefully be coaching with again next season.
