Welcome all Arapahoe Field Hockey players and families to the 2022/2023 season. We are heading into our final week to prepare for tryouts! Our coaches are excited for the season and I hope your student athletes are ready to give it their best.
As your Arapahoe FH head coach:
My coaching philosophy is one that is fun, challenging and motivates each participant for success. Motivated athletes can acquire greater understanding through group sharing of ideas in order to maximize individual and team learning. The process involves both real game based challenges with player, coach led problem solving discussions. As coaches we promote a fun, safe environment where all athletes can voice ideas and solutions freely amongst peers with confidence. Finding and improving on mistakes is a shared part of the whole groups learning process. Teammates who are engaged in group discussions understand that each players input is valued and each training session can and will produce meaningful team and individual results. As a former National Team Member and current Level III, USAFH coach, I am very aware that finding success both as a player and a coach is a comprehensive continuous process, and not an end to be reached. Understanding the road to success is ever changing, let it motivate you to be better, and encourage you when you have stumbled. As teammates, it is refreshing to think of the path to success as constantly evolving, because it means that anything is possible.
We are looking forward to a fun and exciting season. GO Warriors!!!
