CGMXT COACHING PHILOSOPHY
My coaching philosophy focuses on a few main points and how I achieve these points.
1. Safety - Safety for the rider and safety for other riders surrounding them and sharing the track with them.
2. Having fun - How do we make riding enjoyable for the rider and their family, while still having fun and focusing on a competitive and winning attitude.
My focus and vision are to build a strong foundation for the rider. Where they see the importance and value of skill and technique development and also sportsmanship. By explaining and coaching to the rider and their parents these values and how we achieve them, they will better understand that winning and results will follow closely after.
It's my job to make every rider feel equally important, from beginner to pro and that I give the same effort for a rider of any age and skill level. I expect the same effort and respect back as a coach and mentor. We can reach a mutual agreement of success and understanding by following these keys, by always giving each other our best effort and respect.
Communication is key and I'll do my best to be clear and allow myself to be easily understood. Along with making myself accessible and easy to come to, for the riders and/or parents.
Lastly, by surrounding myself with positive influencers and coaches in the past. I'll continue to do so along with always trying to better understand the sport and riders to further educate myself and adapt to new lessons, technique's and safety measures.
