“How To Become THE Superstar Player Everyone Dreads To Play Against!”

…No Matter What Your Size, Speed, or Current Skill Level…

Laura Warner Is Giving Away A Special Present To A Select Group Of Players And You Could Be One Of Them
And You Could Be One Of Them

Dear Friend,

Friday, October 24th is Laura Warner’s birthday. (If you don’t know Laura, she played for Team Canada for 11 years and is widely considered one of the best defenders ever).

Most people get presents on their birthday. Laura is giving presents away.

Here’s why…

Laura’s lifelong passion is great defense. As she likes to say: “Defense wins championships.”

Have you every wondered why it is defense – not offense – that wins championships? It’s because when you’re checking, marking a check, channeling a forward, playing in the triangle, or stopping shots – YOU have the last word.

This inescapable fact has caused me much frustration as a goal-scorer. The truth is, no matter how much I perfect my shot or how creative I am 1 vs. 1, I still can’t guarantee goals, because my success depends on how another player reacts to me.

Any time you’re defending a player with the ring, you have the last word.

That’s why if you perfect your skills off the ring – your ability to check, mark, channel, and play in the triangle — you will quickly become one of the most dreaded players in your league…the kind of player every team and coach WISHED they had on their team.

The best part?

You don’t need any special ‘raw material’ in your physical make up. You don’t need exceptional size, speed, or even fancy skills (such as a powerful, accurate shot). All you need is a strong work ethic and a burning desire to compete.

The Best Kept Secret To Ringette Excellence Is Defensive Mastery

Mastering your individual defensive skills is one of the best kept secrets to ringette excellence. It seems that every player (and every coach, for that matter) wants to focus on flashy stuff like the big shot. Of course, there is nothing wrong with having a big shot…unless you do it at the expense of core skills such as checking, marking, channeling, and playing in the triangle.

The bottom line? Mastering your defensive skills isn’t popular, but it’s a very real path to greatness. Even basketball’s best player, Michael Jordan, figured this out. Only when he buckled down to become the best defensive player in the league was he awarded MVP status.

80% Of What You Know About Defensive Skills Is Dead Wrong!

Of course, since most ringette players and coaches have paid NOT paid attention to the subtle details of individual defensive skills, 80% of what you know about mastering individual defense is dead wrong.

If you want proof of this statement, pause for a moment and think about how many times you’ve struggled to check, mark, and stop the best players in your league. How many times have you watched them, helpless, as they worked their magic? If you’re like most players, it’s the same frustrating story, game after game…and no matter how much ‘good coaching’ you seem to get, most of it does not work.

The harsh truth is that the vast majority of coaches and players do not understand the subtle differences between good defensive skills and exceptional defensive skills.

Laura’s Present To You Is True Defensive Mastery

You may already know that Laura and I have worked “hands on” with over 7,538 ringette athletes at the Ringette Retreat camps since 1993, helping them learn true ringette excellence. In that time, we’ve authored 5 instructional DVDs, 13 Special Reports, 131 technical ringette articles, and 61 Mastermind lessons for ringette coaches.

Out of all this amassed knowledge, Laura has put together the ultimate Defensive Mastery Package. She wants as many truly committed players as possible to achieve true defensive mastery, so she’s made this package truly irresistible, a true ‘no-brainer’.

Never Taught Before…By Anyone, Anywhere.

The Defensive Mastery Package includes every tool we’ve got here at the Retreat – including several online instructional tutorials we’ve never let out of the vault before to players — so you can transform this area of your game immediately at a fraction of the regular price.

We are opening the doors (but only slightly) to a limited number of players who want to enjoy phenomenal ringette excellence by mastering their individual defensive skills.

We are limiting the number of Defensive Mastery Packages because Laura has graciously offered to spend time personally answering questions from the players who take advantage of it. This personal attention is one of the ways we separate ourselves from othersin the field.

Here are the 7 Building Blocks you get in the Defensive Mastery Package:
