This is Part II of a series of clinic notes. During the past 6 months I have had the opportunity to attend 37 zoom clinics. It has been an outstanding opportunity of growth for me -- learning and listening to coaches I greatly respect and many I had not gotten the opportunity to hear before. Obviously 37 zoom clinics have created a mountain of notes and what I'm doing over the next few days is to share a few quick hitters.
