Why do you Coach for KCSG?  Solid structure. I truly believe in the Shield Values that we have at KCSG.  Particularly Passion and Respect.  A good portion of my Coaching Philosophy is - We must hold players accountable for their own development.  I try and teach my players to play with Passion and be "All In" along with respecting the game, their teammates and their plan.  By doing so, players push themselves and their teammates to higher standards.  Players respect each other enough to challenge each other in the training environment to maximize their development. Proof is in their results.
