Coaching Philosophy

My philosophy as a coach is two-fold. First, I believe that a coach needs to be a positive role model—to demonstrate respect for team members, opponents, referees, parents, spectators, and opposing coaches. Furthermore, a coach should be dedicated and trustworthy. The second part of my philosophy is based on my extensive experience as a youth coach. When coaching young players, a coach has to have a good understanding of the players on his/her team. More specifically, a coach has to recognize that children and players are not defined by chronological age only. They mature and develop at their own pace. A coach should treat each person as an individual. Not all of the players will be participating for the same reason. A coach needs to recognize this and support each player in achieving individual goals—which I strive to do.
