Jeff Majewski -

The goal of any coach is to develop the children they are coaching. That includes teaching them the skills necessary to excel at the sport they are playing and the life skills to deal with the adversity that sports can bring. I want to start with the basics, teach them the fundamentals and bring them along each and every season. Not every child develops at the same pace athletically, that is why it is important to teach all of them the fundamentals. You do not know which one will excel 3 years from now or which ones will truly have a passion for the game. You cant spend most of the time with one child. You need to focus on the team as a whole, give each child individual attention and help them improve in the areas the may be lacking.
