Even today, BFS Camps and Clinics remain the backbone of the company.
BFS Camps and Clinics can be broken down into three basic parts: an instructional section, a motivational section, and a hands-on section. Hands-on workshops put everything together.

It is amazing what can happen for teams when they experience a BFS Clinic. As a coach, it is great to see the underdogs rise to the top, and watch the great teams achieve excellence. Although, there is one thing that tops them all, being part of a team, coaching staff, school, or community that becomes united in a common goal, to strive for greatness in all areas of life.
Our lives have been changed seeing the power of people uniting together. There are thousands of stories that we could tell you about individuals and teams overcoming great odds, but we will save those for the clinic. If there is anything we can do to help you and your team reach your goals and become unified, let us know. We are dedicated to helping athletes and coaches succeed!
