Coach Jodi on why she loves coaching: “The moment I see a player finally understand how to perform a skill and the corresponding pride they feel within themselves when they perform it during a match is so exciting. I also delight in the joy that lights their faces when they play as a team and are rewarded with high-fives and hopefully a win. However, the greatest reward to me as a coach is seeing those players several years later and hearing how the lessons they learned from their time with our program have helped them grow in other areas of their life.”
