This year will mark my 9th coaching youth basketball in McLean. I also had the good fortune to be the assistant coach last winter for the 5th grade Boys Select A team.
I have also spent several years coaching Little League Baseball, and in general raising kids who have great interest in sports, team, competition, learning, and being coach-able.
My approach typically includes a focus on fun, fundamentals, game situations, being a great teammate, and having respect for leadership - parents, coaches, referees. I expect our team will work hard in practice, and enjoy the team aspect of our progress. I believe in the following statement - it is amazing what a team can accomplish, if no one cares who gets the credit.
I will welcome and hope for organizational help and great communication with and from our parents. Success will be to grow as a team by supporting one another, get better as the season progresses, play hard, play smart, recover from disappointment quickly, and yes, hopefully win some games.
