"I had a student on a soccer team I was coaching who was having trouble in school. He loved soccer, but couldn't play if he didn't pass his classes. I took time to get to know him and found he was very smart, just very discouraged. The longer he was on my team, I noticed he felt more confident. He was able to keep his grades up and ended up getting a scholarship to go to college."
"I think that participation in sports can play an important part in a child's development. Sports can instill confidence, teamwork, communication and leadership skills."

"My ideal athletic coach is passionate about their work and their students. They are self-aware and a visionary, goal-minded and determined to meet and exceed those goals. I want coaches who truly care about their work and want to improve themselves. The type of coach I want to work for me wants to learn more and is a problem solver, looking for ways to improve the programs and strengthen their teams as well."
"In my experience, there are many different coaching styles and I'm not sure there is one ideal style. However, I think a coach who is able to communicate effectively with each individual on the team while also leading the entire team towards one goal...is truly an amazing coach. I like to hire coaches who are empowered and committed."
