What coaching means to me.
As a kid growing up, athletics was a central focus of activity in my house.
Each season from a very young age my family participated in every and any kind of sport. Growing up in Farmington, ME, we were fortunate to have a local ski area named Titcomb. My siblings and I were picked up at school and then dropped off there each day in the winter where we would stay until one of our parents could come pick us up after work.
At an early age I grew to appreciate and love the opportunities sports offered. They taught me many of the tools required in life like discipline, determination, and hard work.
For me, these skills came more naturally on the hill than in the classroom.
When I graduated from Bates College I was faced with the decision of finding a job. Like most that age, I wasn’t sure what it was I wanted to do until I saw an ad in the local newspaper for a ski coach at a nearby ski academy. I quickly developed a resume, submitted it and was hired.
Since that day I have loved every minute of my coaching career. I truly enjoy helping athletes realize their potential and helping their understand the commitment it takes to reaching their goals.
Everybody wants to be really good at what they do, but few truly know how to dedicate themselves and prepare for it.
