This is the Coaching Philosophy that we aim to work achieve:
•               The kids all enjoy themselves & have fun (training & matches)
•               Fairness - all get the chance to play equally (each player must play at least 50% of each match)
•               Praise & motivate all players regularly
•               Instill a positive behavior & code of conduct for kids &parents
•               Meet the needs of the individual player – understand all of them
•               Let the kids make decisions, give them ownership, ask questions
•               Rotate players in different positions – they learn more
•               Let them try things, let them make mistakes, encourage creativity
•               Work as a team (players, coaches & parents!)
