Please use your full name when registering and logging in to all of your sessions, so we can properly give credit for participation.

Please register for each session individually. If you register for a Monday session at the beginning of the week, you are NOT automatically enrolled in the rest of the week!

Basic Zoom accounts are free, but you do NOT need one to attend an online meeting. If you have one, feel free to use it if you want.
Please use your full name when registering and logging in to all of your sessions, so we can properly give credit for participation.
Each session will be limited to 100 participants on a first-come, first-serve basis.

If you intend to participate with a group of coaches, please register individually so we can give you proper credit for attending.

Getting Credit for your Leaders’ Summit:

Once all 5 sessions are completed, you will automatically be sent an email with your certificate of completion. You can then upload your certificate to your PitZone profile.

Getting CEU credits:

You don’t have to attend all 5 sessions to get CEU credits. You will still receive credit for the number of sessions you attended. Please email Mike McGarry at when you’re finished with your sessions; he will email you a certificate for the CEUs based on the number of sessions you’ve attended.
For example, you are a Level 2 coach and only need 3 CEUs. You can attend 3 of the hour-long weekday sessions as your schedule allows. Let Mike know via email and he’ll send you a certificate with 3 CEUs for you to upload in PitZone.
