“I have been coaching youth in Water Polo for about 12 years. Last year my wife and I moved to Florida to be near my 90-year-old parents who really need family nearby now. Still, this year after helping coach an 18-Under boys team at the Water Polo Olympics which ended the day before the Institute in Dallas, I planned to attend the Drs. Hacker & Mann session because of the superb material and presentation the year prior.”
