Coach is working with the Rockford High School Girls Program 

“Coach McGannon. The girls finished 5th in the state championship and Jessica (our # 1 player) finished 3rd individually and was named to the Michigan Super Team. She shot 64 after our initial meeting with you!! Your training was instrumental in helping these players cope with the adversity and poor outcomes, thank you so much!! The assessment really set the stage for them to address their weaknesses. Our football team is aware of this training and will be in touch. Coach Scott Kruisenga”
