Coaching Philosophy
Coaching is teaching and for something to be taught, something must be learned. I believe that the ability to fail and learn must require someone who has self-confidence, which most athletes do not have at first. This puts the need of the athlete first before mine.  I truly believe everyone can be taught but not all in the same way.  It is my job to reach out to that individual and find out the best approach. My goal as a coach is to enable my athletes the same passion that I have for the game of volleyball, which leads to my first priority to make my athletes the best they can be on the court as a player and better off the court as a person. To obtain this a coach must reach a clear understanding of the word “respect” and that every athlete must be treated with respect and dignity that he or she as a coach thinks they deserve in return. I want all of my athletes to have “Competitive Greatness” and to want to push themselves as hard as they can to become the best they can on and off the court.
