What is your coaching philosophy?
I believe it’s important to develop strong technical skills and tactical knowledge. It’s essential that players understand the game and think for themselves. As a coach, I think it’s important to adapt the style of play to fit the team’s strengths. I want to set players up for success. Most importantly, it’s my responsibility to create an environment where players are willing to work hard but also have fun and enjoy the game.
