Program & Philosophy

Mission: we create an atmosphere where students feel safe and learn to challenge themselves and their teammates in a way that builds skills, confidence, and character.

Philosophy: we eschew the "win-at-all-cost" model of coaching in favor of both wanting to win and using sports to teach broader lessons; draw from the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA), a nonprofit founded by Stanford University.

Core Values:

Teamwork: working together in a positive and inclusive manner toward a common goal; sharing responsibility toward continued improvement

Hard Work: giving it your all, even when challenged and pushed to your limits; being consistent and balanced through exhaustion and staying focused on the tasks at hand

Commitment: consistently showing up on time, prepared and ready to focus on giving your best effort for yourself and for the team

Respect: combining dignity and empathy, best expressed through both verbal and non verbal communication
