Greatest Personal Coaching Moment:
The first game of our JV season where I was the head coach we got crushed by Gilberts JV team and then later that year when we played them again we won in 3, was proud of the growth that they made and that was the perfect example of the strides that they made in a few short months.
Coaching Philosophy/ Why do I love to Coach:
My coaching Philosophy is that the most important thing is to show growth as individuals and as a team, we could win every game and get no better, but I would rather win less games and continue to get better as individuals and as a team. I also believe that we play like we practice so we would need to have fast paced and competitive practices at all times. The reason I love to coach is because I love the game of Volleyball and I love to share that love by teaching others how to play at a high level where the game gets truly fun!
