Coaching for 8 years and helping girls to develop their high potential in the court.
Playing in High School as defender and adult leagues as well. I believe that it is very important as a coach to continue learning new strategies and advanced training to take each player to the next level. That's why I continually take every opportunity to attend new coach training to bring the later advanced training to my teams.
