Coaching Resume

This will be my third season with Rain City (U15, U16, & U17) and my fifth season coaching club volleyball.  I am also the head volleyball coach at 3A Juanita High School in Kirkland.  I have been actively playing volleyball (indoor/grass/sand) for over 30 years and still continue to be a student of the sport as I am continually learning new things and adjusting the way I play and coach. Most of my coaching education has come through attending Gold Medal Squared Coaching Clinics.

In addition to the tactical skills of the game, I am continually working with players to understand the mental part of the game; I believe that a well-trained volleyball player is a good player, but a smart well-trained volleyball player is great volleyball player.

Coaching Style

My practices are designed to be fun, energetic, competitive, and something to look forward to each week.  I want my practices to be a place where every player can come and forget about the other worries in their life and have fun playing volleyball. Going to volleyball practice or a tournament should be eagerly anticipated by each player because they get to play a sport they love and they get to enjoy it with teammates that share the same passion.

My coaching style is big on praise for doing the right things and asking for small corrections when needed. As a coach I want to be the biggest fan for each of my players; when they are successful, I’m successful.

Every practice needs to develop skills and I try to use a mixture of specific skill work with as many competitive drills as possible because players learn the game of volleyball by actively playing it. Although we would like to win every match, that is not always possible so we learn from our losses and our mistakes and try to grow from them. One of my favorite coaching quotes is “Confidence is the belief that failure is only temporary”. My players learn by being challenged to grow and realizing that in every practice and every match they are improving.

I like to choose players that are willing to try new things and are open to new ideas, relentless in their desire to improve, willing to let the team be bigger than they are, willing to do whatever it takes to make the team better, can laugh at themselves, and love to have fun playing volleyball.
