I am a life-long learner and student-of-the-game (nerd) who is currently training small groups (3-4 people) ages U12 through college. As a huge fan of Alan's work since his collaborative ball-on coaching blog days, I've read his posts, tweets, and books he's published. Alan never ceases to produce simple, practical tools that immediately impact coaches. Before I took the course, I thought this might be repetitive content found elsewhere on his site. However, once I started, I quickly realized how vital and fresh this course is. Our small group trainings are hour-long weekly sessions. Therefore, time is extremely limited and important to me. The tools for managing transitions were immediately impactful. Over time, I know I will continue to grow in selecting the most beneficial exercises for the main goal of the training session and in becoming more effective and concise in discussions. The course content is easily accessible. The philosophical backgrounds provide a baseline foundation to the WHY behind the WHAT and HOWs. There are plenty of nuggets to immediately see 1% gains in your sessions, especially the customizable templates!

As a high school and club coach for the past 20 years I want to ensure that I continue to grow and learn along with the game and today's athletes. I thoroughly enjoyed working through Alan's coaching course because it brought clarity to some of the strategies that I already implement while offering some new ideas and techniques to coaching that will create more impactful practices. One of the greatest take aways for me was repetition without repetition. I appreciated the example of the one on one drills, which developed the same skill while using a variety of teaching methods. Thanks Alan for taking the time to help us serve our athletes well.

Alan's course does a fantastic job of simplifying and clarifying how one should approach practice design. The resources and structure(s) that he provides will elevate any coaching staff's workflow, while allowing them to 'keep the main thing, the main thing'.

I am a club coach and co-owner and consistently working to create practice plans across multiple age groups, different surfaces and different seasons. The content provided in Efficient Practice Design was valuable, easy to digest and presented in a manner that was easy to implement. After viewing Efficient Practice Design, we made the decision as club owners/coaches to make major changes to our spring 2024 content and practice planning. This course gave us fresh ideas and really hit home the idea to keep the main idea....the main idea! The notion of anticipating changes in any given practice plan was also wildly valuable and allows for vulnerability on the coaching end. The best thing about Efficient Practice Design is the short, concise videos with information that will change the way you coach and plan your practices. It will challenge your thinking and allow you to freely plan a practice without over thinking or over planning!
