My Name: Kim Stoddard
Team: 14 Gold
Gold Medal Squared
2 years as Scarborough High School Varsity Coach
8 years as Scarborough High School JV Coach
9th season with Maine Juniors as a 14s coach
Played at Scarborough High School when the team first started. Played some club in college and pickup when I have time now.
Every year the 14s age group gets stronger and more competitive. I expect 14 Gold will have a very competitive group of players this year. I stress developing a solid foundation for all skills and working to get better individually and as a team. Players will gain experience at each position on the court to develop them as all around volleyball players.
I believe focusing on the fundamentals and never giving up are keys to being successful. I expect players to work hard in practice and to try to improve every time they touch a ball. When we do that, players improve quickly and have more fun playing.
Why I Love Coaching:
My favorite part of coaching is helping the players gain confidence in themselves. Watching players progress over the years from 14s all the way through high school is very rewarding.
