All Access videos are designed to allow viewers from all over the world to see how successful coaches run their practices in a “live” practice setting. All Access videos allow viewers to see the practices un-edited and in real-time. You will see how top coaches run their drills, interact with their team and staff, how they motivate their team, the cue words they use, the atmosphere of the practice and how practices are structured from day to day. Many coaches visit successful colleges and high schools to watch practice. But if you live out of state or out of the country, visiting another coach’s gym can be costly. That’s why we created the All Access Practice Series of videos — to bring the practices to you!
