Sam Zullo - Coaching Clinic

Simsbury High School GIrl's Varsity Basketball Coach Sam Zullo will be conducting a coaching clinic for STBC coaches.  Saturday, November 8th 2-5pm at Simsbury High School.

All coaches (not just girl's coaches) are strongly encouraged to attend.

Coach Zullo's agenda:

1.  Teaching kids to play hard
2.  Well executed warm up
3.  Man to Man defense
4.  Getting youth players to execute
5.  Some of my favorite "fun" drills...it must remain fun!
6.  Each coach should bring a favorite drill or play to share...to discuss as a group.
7.  If anyone had specific things they struggle with, I will leave time to cover/demonstrate those as well.


If you haven't met Sam, I guarantee you he will bring an extraordinarily high level of energy and enthusiasm to the clinic along with excellent basketball and teaching expertise.

Please RSVP to Sam Zullo at:
