This my opinion of course, I know that do not have the cash to drop in on it. I don't doubt it can help though. I guess a showroom feature .help negate my skepticism.
My son has been a project k member since the middle of December. With the videos we've sent and the help we've asked for in just a couple months have been much more helpful than the 2 pro clinics Trent has attended. And we still have 10 more months and the season upon us. Jason has done a fantastic job with Trent's coaching.
Trent is on our Fields 5 man team and is the youngest player. He tried out and plays regular tournaments. Last months indoor tournament, Trent's by far was the most prepared player on the team and his percentages showed it. Being the youngest he stressed that he will make a mistake and let the team down. However, it was just the opposite. When another much older experienced player couldn't perform Trent ran his lines too for the day.
Trent is not the once a month a month player.
The key is you won't get anything out of it if you do not put anything into it. Trent's practices and drills are video'd and sent to Jason. All have been critiqued in a timely manner and Trent has gotten better in a short amount of time.
I'm 43 years of age and know the value of competent coaching. I coached a wrestling team for 15 years until my leg was severed in an motorcycle/car accident. I can no longer do that and look to others for help to coach my son. If I had to put a number on it I can tell you the 300-400 I spent for 2 clinics isn't even close to the coaching Trent has already got from being in the K Project. At his age he was overlooked by the professionals as a kid that wouldn't continue playing. That was my opinion of the clinics. This by far out classes the clinics I've watched my son participate. But this is my opinion.
Thank You Jason. It's been the help this young kid needed to go further. See ya on the podium.
Sorry for the rant in your thread Jason. I'm a believer in standing up for those that you believe in and trust. Especially when those have been as much help as you have.
