I believe that a Coach has a most important level of influence, negative or positive on those athletes they interact with. Great coaches use sport as a vehicle to enrich the lives and the futures of their athletes. Coaches should inspire a safe environment that nurtures pride, confidence, courage, respect, responsibility, trust, care, leadership, and other attributes. Coaches are role models and leaders that often athletes trust and look up to. As a Certified NCCP Level II Sprints/Club Coach and Performance Trained Coach with Athletics Ontario and Athletics Canada, I devote a considerable amount of time, expertise and support to all of our athletes to support them in their lives and quest to be great.
