Why do I coach?
I am here for the student athlete. My mission is to make a positive lifelong difference in young people’s lives, giving each athlete the opportunity to safely live out their dream of being a collegiate athlete, becoming the person they are uniquely created to be.
How do I coach?
I create an environment where there are no outside distractions, such as I-Pods and cell phones. An environment where we all have one common goal to serve each other and grow together through the scientifically designed and time tested training protocol. Humbly and unselfishly serving each athlete I will treat them as I would like to be treated using tough love, patience, kindness while teaching compassion, competitiveness, corporation, discipline, dedication, mercy and teamwork. Those are qualities that will never fade and will always be relevant in the world around us, allowing each athlete to be successful not in only athletics but life.
My Philosophy is a ground based technique oriented, explosive, Olympic style training philosophy consisting of year-round training designed to improve all aspects of physical and mental development of each athlete. The training cycles consist of different phases, all of which follow sound fundamental training principle and periodization ranging from low to high intensity and high to low volume. These are all encompassing sport specific macro-cycles, meso-cycles, and micro-cycles, which will allow each athlete the best opportunity for reaching maximum genetic potential. My goal is to improve the strength, speed, agility, balance, and coordination of the athletes. We will further develop proprioception, kinesthetic awareness, eye-hand and eye-foot coordination. We will be focusing on injury prevention, flexibility, and overall power of the athletes trained. This will enable each athlete to have the skills and tools necessary to achieve success.
I Motivate, Coach, and Inspire athletes to be Consistent, Disciplined, and to put forth a great effort EVERY DAY.
The plyo-metric progression is a low intensity to a high intensity program. Utilizing sub-maximal jumps and hops, concentric jumps, counter movements, tuck and pike jumps, depth jumps training eccentric muscle contractions and single leg explosive bounds and jumps.
When developing and maximizing an athlete’s speed we need to improve in three areas utilizing proper progressions. As a coach we need to improve an athlete’s knowledge of speed mechanics and body awareness, improve lower body power and strength as well as increasing mobility to improve stride length thus covering more distance per stride.
“I hated every minute of training, but I said, ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” Muhammad Ali
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
