COACHING PHILOSOPHY

My focus as a coach is character development and providing guidance to student athletes in order for them to improve their basketball skill level and develop an appreciation for discipline, sportsmanship, and teamwork on and off the court.

As someone with a passion for the game and a passion for developing student potential, I have consistently been able to improve individual performance and form cohesive, successful teams with the drive to succeed as a unit.

 

I believe that the concept of “team” is as, if not more important than individual development.

Individually, players will develop naturally as a result of working together as a team. If you put any number of people together in any situation that demands an outcome, a natural leader will arise. The success or failure of that outcome is a direct result of the rest of the group’s belief in that leader.

 

When people are forced to determine an outcome, they work together with reason, logic, and cooperation (when there is something at stake for everyone).
