Daniel Stewart, author, coach and sports psychology consultant, is returning to Venice to speak at Agility PT & Sports Performance to offer a seminar for athletes of any sport. This witty and instructive seminar will offer stress-management techniques, goal setting and visualization. The event is open to the public with admission at the door. Cost is $20 for adults and $15 for students. This will be the fourth year he has offered his coaching skills and humorous seminars to keep alive the memory of a very special Venice girl, Mary Angela Jaquith. Mary died in a tragic horse accident six years ago at the age of thirteen. Her parents, Dr. Michael and Debra Jaquith, facilitate a weekend clinic at their horse farm every year. Coach Stewart will round out the weekend offering his insights in an equestrian clinic, March 2-3. The equestrian clinic is almost sold out to young riders, however weekend auditing is still available for $25 per day.
