The candidates spent five full days in field sessions with players between the ages of 12 and 17. In addition to these sessions every night featured a classroom lecture and open discussion. Steve Sinnwell summed up all of the coaches feelings, "I learned a lot of new things and other approaches to coaching from everyone and met a lot of new people who like to teach the game as well."
