D1 coaches' clinic... good value for an aspiring youth coach?
« on: January 02, 2013, 02:33:54 PM »
My available budget to attend clinics is modest for 2013.  If an easily accessible D1 University hosts a clinic for coaches, would it rank higher or lower in value to other clinics more specifically targeted at youth/HS coaches?  I ask because my clinic experience is limited, so I don't know what different clinics offer.  I attended the National Wing-T Clinic in 2012, and I thought it was good.

Example choices:
D1 University: 5 miles/$85
National Wing-T Clinic: 150 miles/$85 + lodging
Hugh Wyatt clinic: 190 miles/$? + lodging
Single Wing Conclave: 150 miles/$? + lodging
etc.

Please note I have already set aside $ for a possible Dave Potter clinic near D.C., and also if Coach Calande hosts a clinic in CT; these are not in jeopardy :)

Glazier clinics are free to youth coaches, and loaded with D1 guys.

If you run the DW, go to the DW symposium in New Orleans in 3 weeks.  Best clinic in the country if you run DW.

Second choice, go to Chicago and catch the Dum Coach clinic in March.  IMO, that will be the #2 clinic in the country this year, just behind the DWS.

Third choice - again if you run the DW, go to Wyatt's clinic.

If you don't run DW, my third choice would probably be the SW conclave in PA or the Wing T clinic.  I've heard a lot of good stuff about that one.

I'd also strongly consider looking for a Cisar clinic near you.  I don't run any of his stuff, but still intend to go to his clinic in NH if I'm free that day.

I got to have dinner w/ Coach Shaw (Stanford) while attending a free Glazier clinic.  Really cool that they do that...

As Michael stated the Glazier Clinincs are free for Youth Coaches.  Always seems to be a vast assortment of Coaches from High School through Pro speaking.  A couple of years ago they had Bob Bostad from Wisconsin talking about OLine Play.  Great Seminar.  They also had Michigan States DC talking about his 4-3 Under.  Again Great Material. 

I always manage to walk out with a few CD's and tons of notes to rewrite.  If your into DVD's I suggest any material from Mike Lalor Head Coach of Stillman Valley HS here in Illinois.  Very nuts and bolts and inexpensive.

I've found that it's difficult to find any Web presence for this event, but the contact is Todd Bross.

Just know that the 2013 event is the "12th annual"... as many past web pages come up when you Google it.

It's apparent that DWS IS Mecca. :)  I wish I could afford that one.  I will save for next year :)

If you are a DWing nut....

I'd save all your money and do three things....go see Coach Potter if you can....Coach Calande if you can and then spend the rest of your budget on DWS DVD's.

Emphasis on nut!

Yes, Yes, and Yes!  My wife already gave me the not-yet-produced 2013 DWS DVD set as a christmas gift.
