WHAT YEAR DID YOU START WORKING AT SVSEF?
WHY DO YOU COACH?
I really like blending the craft of coaching with the science of human performance and feeling like every day we can help a kid grow. When I was a kid, I had a coach who made me feel welcome and an important part of the team regardless of my ability and that informs how I coach.
