The Sport Clubs online course provided an outstanding curriculum that allowed me to gauge our program’s “health”, and critically assess our protocols. The wealth of information and feedback provided throughout the four weeks was really impactful, and will both benefit our student-athletes and enhance my knowledge base.”
