Glazier Clinics are offered in locations all over the United States throughout the football offseason. The clinics provide a forum for personal growth among coaches.
Glazier Clinics CEO Chris Coughlin shared the five benefits of attending clinics.
Variety of speakers: The clinics run from Friday afternoon to Sunday mid-day, and at any given time, there are seven to 10 coaches speaking on various topics. Typically, half are NFL or BCS-level college coaches. The rest include high school coaches.
Networking opportunities: In 2015, coaches from 79 of MaxPreps’ top 100 high school teams attended Glazier Clinics. The conferences give coaches opportunities to trade stories with the best in the business.
The Season Pass: For $459, a coach can get unlimited access to all Glazier Clinics for his entire staff for a year, access to the Glazier Vault, which includes videos and notes from previous speeches, 40-plus vendor discounts and a Strike Special Teams System.
Expanding knowledge: Position coaches or coordinators looking to expand their areas of expertise can attend speeches that focus on topics outside their job descriptions. For example, most Glazier Clinics have speeches about how should approach leadership like a CEO.
College and continuing education credits: Glazier Clinics will provide a certificate of attendance for clinics and live webinars upon request. This can then be submitted to your school board or state for CE credits depending upon their policy.
