This was a very cool experience for the SPI Candidates to have. Many people who work in the single pitch discipline work with kids a great deal, so it was a grand experience for them to work with these awesome kids.
At the end of the day, the kids were happy and five new individuals had passed their AMGA Single Pitch Instructor exam .
