Rally Cap Coaching Clinic – FREE! May 9th

There will be a Rally Cap coach’s clinic on Saturday May 9th in Lundar at the Arena.  Sign in will be from 8:30am – 9:00am.  Clinic will be about 3-4 hours long.  IMB will cover the cost of this clinic.   

The Rally Cap program is an important part of the development of the younger kids and this clinic will hopefully give coaches a better idea on the progression process that will lead right into Grand Slam (9U).

Please forward this on to your coaches or to anyone you may think will benefit from this.  Credit will be given for taking this clinic towards the Initiation Level.  Please register with Blaine Fortin via email.  He will be facilitating this clinic.  He will take as many coaches as possible. Again there is no charge for this clinic.

Please  contact Blaine with any questions.
