In the world of sports there are a million “right” ways to do something. There are countless coaching philosophies, game strategies, skill techniques, and sports psychology principles floating around out there. But these, on this blog, are mine. These are my interpretations, my experiences, my trials, my successes, my failures, my philosophies, and my learned knowledge as it applies to my life as a softball coach, athlete, and sport psychology grad student.

At the young age of eight, I received the opportunity to experience positive coaching at its finest. I was coached by a coach who understood the value of self confidence, and what it means to truly believe in a player, despite the odds. Without his guidance, and trust in my abilities, I wouldn’t be who I am, or have the dreams I have, today.

While living out my dream of playing collegiate softball, I came upon the realization that I wanted to influence someones life, as my coach, had influenced mine. This epiphany lead me to attain a BA in Kinesiology with a focus in coaching, and a minor in Exercise Science. Throughout my undergrad curriculum, I was required to take a Sports Psychology intro course; it was love at first lesson. I could suddenly apply what I was learning in the classroom immediately to my real life, practice. A few classes wasn’t enough. After taking a semester off to coach a varsity JC softball program, I realized I wanted more. I wanted an MA in Sports Psychology, and possibly a Doctorate someday.

So here I am, a student in grad school, chasing her dreams of becoming the kind of coach who discovered her own life’s passion.

Quote of the day:

“A good coach can make players see what they can be, not what they are”
