Coaching philosophy

My job is to encourage players to create, to explore, and to feel comfortable making mistakes . . . to foster a culture in which players learn to push themselves and their teammates to be better individually — and as a team. Our goal is to always be improving and learning as we strive to perform at the highest level possible.
