What Makes Us Different

Go beyond basic instruction. Discover the details that separate elite players from the rest. Learn by doing.

The Skills Development Lab gives you online instruction from elite coaches. Almost all of our coaches have experience with US, Canadian, Great Britain, or Australian national teams. These coaches have a deep knowledge of the sport and its athletes. They understand the minor details that separate the intermediate players from the elite players. Most importantly, they have experience in explaining these details to others. We have the best and most creative ultimate minds figuring out how to make activities for one or two people that will have an impact in one to two hours per week. It’s a big challenge, but If anyone can figure this out, it’s our expert coaching crew.

FAQ's

Everything you need to know to make in informed decision.

What if I only need some of the topics?

The Skills Development Lab will be a monthly subscription. You’ll know in advance what topics will be covered each month. If you want to leave during months when you don’t think the content will be useful and come back when you want to, no problem! But the goal of the Skills Development Lab is to get you in the habit of making continuous improvements to your game each month. Based on our coaching staff, you should be able to pick up at least one small thing that makes a difference in your game, no matter what the topic.

Can I join later?

Yes. However, modules are designed to be started near the beginning of each month. Coaches will be most involved and available while their module is live.

Being with us during the “live” module means that you’ll be working through the skill with the rest of the group. You’ll have access to the current coach for Q&A sessions and they are committed to be active in the forum during the month that they are coaching their module.

There are some pros of joining later. You will have access to all modules created prior to your sign-up date. This will give you some flexibility in deciding what skills you want to work on and when. The tech and content delivery may be more smooth a few months in. If you’re a perfectionist and don’t need the community feedback aspect of the learning process, then joining later may work for you.

Will I get feedback from coaches or just be listening to lectures?

This is a lab not a lecture hall! You'll be encouraged to put what youre learning into action and submit homework each week.

You'll be able to upload video to Youtube, Vimeo or whatever and post a link either in a forum or in the website and get feedback from our coaches and community members. We want this to be an interactive experience.

Please keep your expectations reasonable. I will not guarantee that every coach will answer every question or give individual feedback to every post. We will attempt to have a Q&A at least once each month where coaches will answer as many questions as possible.

By joining now, you'll have the best chance of getting feedback from our coaches as we'll have the fewest members when we first open.
