Coaches Outlook:

After filling in as a substitute coach the last two seasons, I am looking forward to a full season of coaching and working with the kids. Making sure they have fun, learn, and get better are my goals.

Why I Love Coaching:

I love working with the kids, being a positive role model, and giving them the confidence they can use in all aspects of their life. Seeing the kids get better, have fun, and enjoy their time on the court and knowing you had a small part in that, is a feeling that never gets old. I love joking with the kids and putting them at ease, so they are more relaxed on the court.
