About the Facilitator, Bryan Baxter:

Bryan got his start in facilitating while working with MacMillan Bloedel. He, along with three others, designed, developed and delivered a business education course for approximately 3500 logging and sawmill employees on Vancouver Island and the mainland starting in 1998.

Since then, Bryan has taken his craft into the realm of coaching. He has been delivering the core modules of the NCCP for the past 15 years. He also facilitates the coaching clinics for the BC Lacrosse Association. In his spare time, Bryan volunteers as a Director for the Canadian Lacrosse Association as the Director of Domestic Development.

His biggest care about coaches is that they will always place the needs of the young athletes above everything else. The wins and losses do not matter in the big scheme of things. What is important is that coaches are creating adults of the future and coaches need to be aware of everything they say and do because young athletes are like sponges and will hang on every word and action that coaches deliver.

Bryan's favorite quote: 

Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care. - Theodore Roosevelt
