The “coach” part of my name comes from youth sports. For the last ten years, I have coached both my daughters in soccer and basketball. I am honored to have been the head coach for 15 different teams and assistant coach for six others. I believe I have gotten as much, or more, from coaching than the kids. Coaching has been a great way to spend time with my daughters who continue to play both sports today. Since their skill set and competition have gone way above my level, I have deferred to more of an assistant role and sometimes I am simply a parent cheerleader. Coaching has been a big part of my life and I am proud to say that in some small way, I have had a positive influence on so many young children and athletes.
Most people have coached youth sports, played youth sports, or signed up a child for youth sports at some point in their lives. If you’ve done one of those, you have likely seen first-hand the extraordinary impact a youth sports coach can have on a child. My mission is to help create the next generation of great youth coaches by building and fostering the skills needed to influence the positive development of children. These qualities are leadership, sportsmanship, mentorship, compassion, and other life skills that will help them in the ultimate game—the game of life!
