Why do you like to coach juniors?
Growing up as the oldest male sibling I’ve always had the responsibility to supervise my brothers. I have 3 younger brothers and one older sister. Growing up in this environment of always having a responsibility in hand of younger children created this sense of wanting to work with kids. The coaching position is perfect for me. Combining what I love, sports and kids.
What’s the best part of working with kids?
Kids are just awesome. When you start becoming an adult and start having responsibilities your inner child starts to fade away, Working with kids 3 times a week rejuvenates your inner child. The kids remind me that it never hurts to have some fun. Kids are so welcoming and very outgoing. It’s nice meeting very diverse kids with diverse personalities.
