Coaching Philosophy
I believe in teaching first and foremost a love for the game of volleyball and being a positive role model for young athletes. It is my goal to focus on helping them to build confidence in themselves and to ingrain a sense of selflessness, respect and positivity to carry forward in their everyday lives.
