It is playing with integrity, making the right choices during and after each point and playing with heart and no excuses that determines a successful tennis player at Smith College.
There is no substitute for hard work and combined with the “servant-leader” philosophy of others first, success is inevitable.
I also believe that playing sports as a child not only builds character and confidence but also gives a sense of accomplishment.
It also prepares children for life, teaching them about working as a team or as a team player, not as an individual.
I learn from people and environments by detailed observation. I use on-line videos and former great Coaches to teach me more about life.”“Thanks for the opportunity to share some ideas around my own coaching philosophy.
Simply put, I try to build high self-esteem in each one of my players.I do that the same way an informed parent would do, by accepting the player for who he/she is.That is the baseline and from there we build on the strength of their personality and work to shore up the areas that are not as strong.I developed this by reading about, listening to and observing other Coaches, Wayne Bennett, Bo Hanson, John Buchanan and John Wright.”I think creating an environment that is relaxed and conducive to learning is important.In addition the athlete needs to be aware of the standards and behaviors that all of the Coaches and athletes are prepared to accept to help create the optimal learning environment.In traditional coaching success is achieved when the Coach, as an expert puppeteer, orchestrates the actions of players according to his own vision. I feel it is better to deliver honest news and clear and concise assessments rather than wishy-washy blather meant to assuage an individual’s self-esteem.In this model the Coach becomes the energy source which eventually runs dry.“Many people want to know if I coach like I outwardly appear to be which is assertive, aggressive, energetic and effusive. When given the opportunity I would rather “go through the front door rather than run around the barn”.If team members embrace this concept they end up coming alongside their teammates, being encouragers, offering forgiveness when necessary, helping teammates to succeed and ultimately creating team success.Anyone can win a tennis match through skill or by cheating.Providing an avenue for young adults to become great people is the only way I know how to change the world for the better.I developed my coaching philosophy based on what is important to me (what I have learned about life and myself).
