Shark’s Pointers
Shark’s Pointers Pregame Talks

Mark Aquino’s “Shark’s Pointers” pregame talks are live and online Fridays at 9:00 a.m. Mark’s talks last about 30–45 minutes, so we’re done in plenty of time for our 10:30 online game.

To attend, click here: https://zoom.us/j/7819297673. (If you haven’t used Zoom before, you may be prompted to download and install an app.)

Handouts (📄) and video recordings (🎦) from previous Shark’s Pointers talks are here. (Video recordings are deleted after a few weeks. If you want to save one longer, you can download it.)
