Why did you decide to become a coach?

It seemed like the logical progression from being an athlete. I love the sport and it allowed me an opportunity to stay involved.

What is your favourite part of coaching?

Working with the athletes, preparing training plans,attending competitions. Mostly, to see athletes succeed.

How did the program benefited you as a mentor?

It allowed me to reflect from a different perspective. Working with a new coach forced me to step back and evaluate what works and what doesn’t.

What type of feedback was given to your New Coach?

Oh…well. How do I abbreviate this…? Okay, to sum it up, I essentially mentioned that our athletes can most effectively reach their goals through proper support and preparation. We have to keep up to them. I always ask, “how can we expect our athletes to one day be the best if we are mediocre as coaches?” Shane knows that this is a beginning and that we will continue on his coach development track started by the Coaches Helping Coaches program.
