"Once coaches hear about what went on here today they are going to make this their destination for a coaching clinic," said Mark Pankow of Smith Falls Ontario after attending the 2011 edition of the FCCA Convention.

 “This was as good as any clinic and convention [that] I have ever attended," remarked Nick Inzerello, Director of Development, USA Football. He added that, "Every coach knew their craft and I learned a ton this weekend".
