“The HCTC event was so informative, refreshing and fun! Any coach, at any level, that wants to learn and grow needs to attend Brian Stanchak’s events like this one. I have a new list of ideas that I’m bringing back to use in my program that I got from the HCTC. I can’t wait to go back again next year. It was outstanding!”

Dave Caputo
Head Coach at Bloomfield College

“What I enjoyed most about HCTC was being surrounded by so many passionate and knowledgeable people. It was clear that everyone in attendance had a growth-mindset not only for themselves and their respective programs, but also for their peers in the room. The mix of speakers provided helpful insight into many different aspects of becoming a head coach. I am very much looking forward to building on the relationships that were created during the conference, and to reconnecting with each individual as the year progresses. I appreciate the opportunity to attend this one of a kind event put on by Brian Stanchak and The BDS Agency. Can’t wait for HCTC17!”
