Thank you very much for the session that you provided.

The session very informative.
FUNdamental Reader: We plan on publishing our correspondence from our 'new' friends like Shaun Lowther in future issues. You will find two articles in this issue that were written by those exposed to the FUNdamental approach. Articles by Graham Kennedy and Kevin Murray will give you an idea how well our methodology works with children -not only in soccer but also (now) in ice hockey!
