STAFF VALUES

We asked our staff "What does a good leader look like?", and "What values to you endeavour to bring into your work environment?"

Here are some of their answers!

EMPOWERMENT
As coaches, we aim to build up our athletes both physically and mentally. We strive to help our athletes feel confident in themselves and their abilities and provide them with the tools they need to succeed. 

ACCOUNTABILITY
Accountability is a crucial foundation within our program as it encourages discipline and responsibility. It keeps us and our athletes responsible for our actions, ultimately keeping us on track to achieving our goals. When we are accountable, we are there for one another, helping our team become a family. 

COMMUNICATION
Communication is a vital skill, allowing for effective understanding between coaches, athletes and families. It is important to us to have excellent communication skills as it is crucial in the development and progression of our athletes. Having the ability to effectively interact with each athlete, to meet their needs allows our students to learn and grow, while creating trust and unbreakable bonds between athletes and their coaches.

KNOWLEDGE

The more you know, the better you can do almost anything - Knowledge is power.

You have to know how to adapt to judges feedback, how to adapt to support each team and athlete, how to work alongside others and confidently communicate with them. By learning as much as we can, asking questions and getting feedback, we expand our knowledge and therefore have the opportunity to pass on our knowledge to our students.
