The entire experience was purely priceless. The knowledge Coach was willing and ready to depart into us on a daily basis, while also challenging our creativity and allowing us to be our authentic selves, is something that I will cherish as I was making my steps to becoming a high school coach. It was always more than ‘programming.’ Coach Jacksic taught me how to be a better coach, a better connector, and how to get people from where they are now, to where they want to be.”
