MADT/MSHSL Host Coaches Continuing Ed

This past Saturday the MSHSL and MADT had a brand new coaches continuing education training event at Wayzata High School.  Speakers and presenters from across the state gave great insights on why we coach, how we impact lives, what safety concerns we’re facing, and how to make the most of our upcoming seasons.  I saw many new faces in the crowd this year, and everyone seemed to be taking away a ton of new information.  One of the highlights I’ll share with you really gets down to the heart of the matter when it comes to why dancers drop out, fall away, and otherwise lack fun in their dance team careers.  I love Fran Kick – his training for drum corps and colorguards is really meaningful to other performance sports like dance team – so check out his other work and classes.  This video is about the misconceptions we have about “fun”.  Watch this one all the way to the end!
