Philosophy of Coaching
You are all different, with different wants, needs and desires. One “package” does not fit all. Each of you bring different life experiences. From your experiences you have shaped your personal views about life and yourselves. A coach’s job is to try their best to understand who you are in many different capacities – spouse, parent, employee, employer, friend, athlete, etc. By knowing you as a complete person, a coach can better understand your motivations and provide you with the environment – physical, mental, emotional, etc. – that will keep you motivated to keep working toward your athletic goal.
Part of my life philosophy is to work hard and have fun too. “All work and no play …” can lead to drudgery. To be a successful athlete you must work hard. However, as you get fit and improve your skills, I believe you will find a new level of joy and fun as you participate in your sport.
"A warrior does not give up what he loves; he finds the love in what he does. A warrior is not about perfection, or victory, or invulnerability: it is about vulnerability. That is the only true courage."
