My coaching philosophy is very straightforward. I plan to achieve success by focusing on commitment and respect. As a coach, I plan to achieve multiple things. First off, I wish to be a successful program and have athletes compete at a high level. With success, I want to help mold individuals into becoming respectful young adults and inspire them to work hard and persevere through obstacles in their lives through discipline. I wish to reach these achievements because I take great pride in being able to give knowledge to others, as well as having the feeling of being able to bring success and fun to a program. To achieve these goals, it will require me being able to work with not only the athletes on the team, but with the parents as well. I will push the athletes to succeed and test their skills and toughness not only physically, but mentally as well. Kids that can succeed in the classroom as well as on the field show they have the correct mindset. I also am very team oriented and expect team members will respect each other and work together. If a team works together, they will achieve success. In order to become an elite program, sacrifice is essential. I expect my athletes to be willing to sacrifice time that normally is used socializing with friends in order to attend all team functions. I need a team to be willing to put in the same amount of dedication as I am in order to help guide them to have improved skills, integrity, and commitment to the program. Parents may be a part of the process by being supportive of their children through the season and respect their desire to compete. I plan to use my knowledge of the sport as well as values within myself to create a positive winning atmosphere, all while instilling the lifelong qualities of respect, integrity, and perseverance in the athletes.
