Coaching has been my life?s focus. I have had great role models and coaching mentors to guide me on this journey. I know it takes passion, commitment and focus, it also demands balance in your life if you want to be truly effective. Technical knowledge and proficiency is a given, that is the easy part. What exactly is coaching? Coaching is a process that has a strong foundation in pedagogy, supported by science, and forged in experience, tested and proven in the competitive arena. It is not something you do; it is some you are with every fiber of your being. It is teaching life through sport because it is about people not training systems and methods. Being a coach is special; everyday that I coach I am thankful for the opportunity.
