Waubonsie Valley and Metea Valley
Head Girls' Softball Coach
February 2005 — Present
As the head girls' softball coach I have worked with other spring coaches in the building in order to organize gym space during the cold months of the spring. I have planned and organized practices for both indoor and outdoor practices, stayed current on new rules/bat regulations, attended clinics to continue to improve my knowledge of the skills and fundamentals of the game, taken care of field maintenance, rescheduled games due to rainouts, set up the sound system and scoreboard for each contest, talked with newspapers, communicated with parents about rainouts and rescheduled games, communicated with fellow coaches to set up games, kept season stats using an iPad application, scouted opposing teams, communicated with summer ball coaches, communicated with college coaches on behalf of recruits, and promoted/organized/and run summer camps for feeder athletes.
Coaching softball has helped me teach athletes how to perform under pressure, stay confident, and stay relaxed.
