I strive to welcome as many student athletes to join my team as possible. I desire to have each participant embrace an inclusive team vision, which provides a welcoming and safe environment. This will allow all team members to grow athletically, socially, and emotionally. When students commit themselves to what our program has to offer the teams have flourished. I ask the experienced teammates, and not just the captains to accept a larger leadership role each year. This important modeling has made a huge impact on how well our younger team members become more willing to open themselves up to everything the program has to offer. Everything we strive to accomplish we do it together as a team. My goal is that each athlete in the program would be able to look back and say "that was one of the best experiences I've ever had."
