Start strong in Orlando

Get a head start on your 2018 training with McCoy in Orlando, Florida, February 5-9, 2018.

After your training, head to the Amway Center to see the Orlando Magic take on the Cleveland Cavaliers on February 6 or the Atlanta Hawks on February 8. Or, play a round at Shingle Creek Golf Club, just five minutes by car. We’ll see you there.

In order to assist you, we’ve summarized the new RCRA container requirements.   READ MORE
