As Notre Dame High School's girls soccer coach, my philosophy can be summed up by two words: positive coaching. My job is to build the students' self-esteem and confidence, teach skills, and encourage good sportsmanship. I ask that my players give 100 percent during games and practices. I also expect them to be committed in body, mind, and spirit. I teach them to treat everyone with respect, including teammates, coaches, referees, parents, and our opponents. And, of course, my players have fun!
