COACHING PHILSOPHY: 
I want every player I coach to learn to love the game as much as I do. Make it fun and competitive to get the most out of players. Positive reinforcement of good play/decisions, while always correcting mistakes….also in a positive way. Spend most of time focusing on technical skills/basics as its very tough to become a great player if you can’t do the simple stuff on a consistent basis. Encourage play that is: aggressive, focused, high speed of play, confident….wanting the ball on your foot, Style of play, formations, etc is dictated by the skill level and abilities of the team.
