Coaches, don't miss Dip Metress's free open practice Sunday; plus a bonus video showing Metress and Virginia Tech's Buzz Williams in action!

Please help spread the word about Sunday's clinic!

Augusta University head coach Dip Metress will hold a free “open practice” Sunday at 1:30. Coaches of all levels are invited to watch Metress, his staff, and his players in action. Share this with a coach who may be interested so the opportunity to learn from one of the greats is available to as many people as possible.

I made this video to show how two coaches I’ve followed closely, Metress and Virginia Tech’s Buzz Williams, are good role models for those leading teams. Coaches and leaders in other fields often talk about the “culture” they want to develop within their team or organization. Here you can see Metress and Williams, who coaches Aquinas graduate Ahmed Hill, in action during recent weeks as they teach their players life lessons and instill values that they hope will define their respective “cultures.”

If you’re a coach, I hope you enjoy the video and I hope to see you Saturday. The details for Augusta U's open practice are in the flier at the top.
