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!)
