What is your coaching philosophy? How do you inspire your players to perform their best on and off the field? 

I am a coach because of my passion for soccer.  By providing numerous learning opportunities for my players, I can help them achieve their goals not only in soccer, but in all aspects of life.   My philosophy is to create an environment that encourages athletes to learn and develop on and off the field.   I also strive to foster a positive learning atmosphere in good and bad times.
