Topical Agenda

We’d love to have you join coaches from across Minnesota and the Midwest at the 2024 Minneapolis Playbook Clinic!

Our Topical Agenda is developed by listening to coaches tell us what they want to discuss. It’s not rocket science, but it is an uncommon approach for clinics today.

Read about the different types of sessions at our clinic make us a little different from the usual. If you have any questions, drop us a note and we’ll get back to you.
