30 Years Professional Coaching (Multi-Sport)
I believe that every athlete has unlimited potential. Regardless of athletic ability, each athlete has the individual ability to develop fundamental movement skills such as balance, agility, flexibility as well as gain physical fitness. More importantly, sport offers the opportunity to develop core values such as perseverance, commitment, leadership as well as respect for ourselves and others.
I believe that my role as a coach is not limited to the instruction of skills but rather, more importantly, to act as a guide in assisting young athletes to develop these core values and provide opportunities use them as they grow and mature in all aspects of their life.
