  • Personal Philosophy In Coaching: “Every player deserves my best because my impact with the kids that I work with is not measured in wins, but rather by how hard I work for each player in terms of pushing them, and making sure that they know I have an expectation for them to improve.  I’m demanding of all players, because all players deserve to be taken seriously.”
  • Approach to Coaching Young Players: “Let the kids surprise you with how good they can become.”  You never know when a young player is going to have a massive growth in development and improvement. If you structure the club so that players can grow and develop at their own pace, you will have a far greater chance to help many more kids than simply the 9-10 players who show early development, and early success.
