  • What I Love about Coaching...

    1) The players.

    2) Developing fine young women/men that we can be proud of on and off the field

    3) Sense of accomplishment/pride when you see a player/team succeed in reaching their goal.

    4) Passing on the love for the game to next generation of players.

    5) Being a positive role model to our players.
