First of all I would like to thank the Vicious and DSS organization. The clinic was a blast! The players were all extremely helpful and cool, thank you so much. I especially want to thank Karen, Carl, and Greg for being there and being super cool. Julie also gets thanked, because I know she wanted to be there and I know she helped a lot with this. The whole time it was a very relaxed environment and everyone was in very good moods.
This was by far the best clinic ever. I have only done two other clinics in the past (Dynasty and Avalanche) and this beat them. The coolest thing about the Vicious Clinic was that there was a lot of One on One time with the players, you had small groups of people with each player, which made it great to learn. They made it very individual too, you got to split up with the players that play the postitions that you do. I got to be with GP and Chris Hooker, being in the Back Center Crew
Then snake guys like Tommy were with Bryan and Tyler, Corner players were with the likes of Parker. This was really good, because in most pro clinics, you are only getting one persons perspective, and they dont always play the same position as you.
Each day consists of running drills that the team actually uses, which is great, cause you know they work (I mean, they won World Cup!). Then you end by doing some 5 Man games (and the big 15+ man game). All the while the players are jumping in on games and playing with and against you, when they are not playing, they are watching you and telling you the good and bad of how you did. Especially during Snapping Drills.
There was nothing about this Clinic I would change, everything they did was extraordinary. For $200 this is a steal. It would almost cost you that much in paint and entry to play both days, plus you got a free Shirt and goodies. And all the while they give you deals on goods. This Clinic would have easily gone for $300+. The best thing about Vicious is that they give back to the fans.
Again, thank you so much. Especially Karen, Julie, Carl, and Greg who helped put this on, along with the others that helped organize it. Thank you to the players for participating and helping out. Thanks to Gary and Brent at AA for allowing us the opportunity for this clinic. I personally want to thank Chris Hooker and GP for teaching myslef and the Back Center Crew! You guys taught me a lot that I will use to kill with the Vicious OT Team!
Please, other participants post what you thought of the clinic, and players and owners, post how you thought it went.
