The Whole Athlete
Our Coaching Philosophy
When we coach girls in sports, we must always consider the hardships they face. Including, but not limited to:
- Media and social messaging is not as inspiring or friendly to girls as their male peers. From body shaming to perpetuating traditional roles for girls and women. We have come a long way, but there is always room for growth.
- Girls are playing in an arena that was designed for boys/men and for the most part owned and ran by men as well. The sports world, and world in general is not always conducive to where and what they see themselves as now or in their future.
- Girls’ lives, like all athletes, off the field are intimately connected to the athlete on the field, but they are carrying all the negative messaging from the areas above each time they take the field.
