Coaching Philosophy

- Vishal Patel

"I coach for the same reason that I teach. When I was younger, I had the privilege of working with teachers and coaches who transformed my educational and athletic experiences through many joyful and tenacious pursuits towards excellence. If I can empower even just 1 athlete to pursue their own excellence with the same passion as I was able to, then I will have successfully done what I set out to do.​As such, I look beyond just the raw skill of a player - I measure the heart of an athlete. It's important to me that players chase excellence knowing that success will follow. That players look to hone their characters against the grit of obstacles and competition. That players understand that they just need to do their absolute best and look to get at least 1% better every time they step into the gym."
