Lectures 3Dan Venezia was a featured speaker at our Coaching Clinic. Dan has a coaching model that clearly works and we benefited greatly from his knowledge and experience. In addition to teaching proper fundamentals, he motivated both parents and coaches to focus on teaching values, especially good sportsmanship. The next day I received dozen’s of phone calls asking when Coach Dan would be returning. Coach Dan added tremendous value to my program.

Lectures 2Dan’s message is an important one and all parents and Officials should take the time to read his important book. In my 36 years of coaching and administering youth sports, Dan’s message is the best one I have encountered. I have had the pleasure of using Dan to conduct several coaching Training Sessions and Youth Skills Development Clinics. He is a tremendous teacher and motivator. Youth sports needs more Dan Venezia’s!”

Lectures 4“Most coaches and parents start off with good intentions but somewhere along the way they get caught up in the moment. In their quest to create winners they lose sight of what’s really important. Are the children learning life lessons and are they having fun?”
