Coaching Philosophy: Student-Athletes must build strong character and self-confidence to be successful on and off the field. Academics and athletics are key parts of their daily activities and their performance, and each of these is critical to their development and success. By providing student-athletes with the proper guidance and support, we can all achieve success in many areas, not only as individuals but as a team.

Coaching Philosophy: I believe strongly in focusing heavily on developing technical skill and confidence. We will, of course, have fun and will aim to win games. However, our desire to win will never come at the expense of enjoying the game and developing our skills. I encourage our young student-athletes to develop a strong sense of commitment to the game and each other.
