When coaching, I love to encourage aggressive play and risk taking. I feel strongly about athletes using practice time to be aggressive and perfect their execution so that in times of pressure, they feel comfortable and confident with their own skills. “Risk it to get the biscuit!” I intend to push my players to break outside their comfort zone, only to foster balanced players that are both confident and smart in their game-time decisions.
Why I Love Coaching:
I love to coach because it provides me with the opportunity to encourage players and boost their confidence. On and off the court, confidence is imperative to success, and volleyball is an excellent mechanism for developing it. As a coach, I can support that development and help players grow into the best versions of themselves.
