The WinningEDGE

“We had a great experience. I would definitely recommend it to any competitive team (actually already have). We, the coaches and the players. all thought it was well worth our time — and that is saying a lot since I gave up a practice for doing it.”

– Mike O’Brien, Coach, McLean HS Girls Varsity Basketball
