Coaching Philosophy

The players have the responsibility to push themselves, their teammates and the team as a whole to be better. My role is to provide the tools and structure for them to find that path to their best selves. The more touches and reps each player has the more improvements they will see. As far as on field play I expect solid team defense and quick ball movement, with crisp passing and off-the-ball runs.
