Join three coaches of 2016 Olympic teams as they share what they learned in Rio, how the game is played at the highest level and what that means for your team. Each speaker will analyze the performance of their team, break down offensive and defensive strategies, and highlight technical/tactical changes. Our speakers will then discuss the impact the Rio Olympics might have on how the game is coached and played in the United States. Coaches from every level will leave this presentation with new ideas gathered from international play that can improve the performance of your team and players.
