Short overview of coaching philosophy:
“My coaching philosophy is:
I believe that playing sports and having something to focus on outside of school/home is important for personal growth and mental health. Building long lasting friendships, bonds, building character, learning perseverance and personal worth are just a few of the important aspects of being an athlete. I love being a small part of that bridge to help children build their confidence. My job is to make these children fall in love with their sport, but also to feel a sense of comfort and belonging. Being a part of a team prepares children for life, teaching them about working as a team player, not just as an individual. I truly believe that playing sports helps build all around character, morals and integrity.”
Coach Wendy and her family is a military family and have have moved all over the US. They have just settled in the Tampa area after her husband served 20 in the Air Force.
