Program Guide



My main objective in coaching is to build young ladies with a positive attitude about themselves and develop in them a feeling of self-confidence.  There are many sacrifices one has to make while being an athlete.  I feel that responsibilities, along with respect for authority, the working together as a team and striving for goals all help to make those athletes better players and more importantly, better people for our community. 

Program goals and objectives:

  1. To give each girl the opportunity to become the best player they can be.
  2. For them to have an enjoyable softball experience.


I have never seen an individual, organization or athletic team succeed without discipline.  Discipline will win the close games for you.  It will keep a team together and provide a base for unity.   

My coaching will be based on an open-door policy, concerning player-coach relationships.  An explanation will be given for any attitudes that I may have.  Communication is very important in life and in my coaching philosophy. 

All players will be treated like young ladies.  I will expect my players to conduct themselves as ladies at all times and in a manner that will reflect upon them, their teammates, their family and their school.  Athletes are special people.  They won’t expect something for nothing, because they know that anything worthwhile takes hard work and discipline to achieve.  Athletic teams that have togetherness will win, disciplined minds and bodies will make winning possible. 


Coaches and players must have pride and be proud of their achievements, team success and the reputation of their school.  They may represent the only contact that many people have with their school and must make it a positive one.
  1. IF you miss two practices UNEXCUSED you will be removed from the team.
  2. IF you miss a  game UNEXCUSED you will be removed from the team.
