Seminar – Developing a winning mentality.
I would like to thank all who helped us with this seminar and the SportTracker road show on Wednesday night last. This was a fantastic evening in the company of double All – Ireland winning Managers, Mickey Harte and Pete Mc Grath. GAA coaches from Roscommon and Sligo joined with the large number from Leitrim to engage with both speakers on a range of topics. Any clubs seeking further information on the SportTracker range of books can contact Thomas Keenan 087 6591049 or SportTracker direct on 042 9395851
