I’ve been coaching lax in GYL for 16 yrs. Christian is probably one of the best teachers I have ever seen I actually stayed for all the clinics and listened to him. We need more people who can break down the movements and pair that with the right drills. He is a master.

Very positive and interactive instruction. Christian is a really great guy and my son enjoyed the session. Lots of reps!
