What does this coach do that makes them a great coach?

This coach has a way of welcoming players, both old and new, in a way that makes them feel important, welcome, and part of a sports family.


What lesson(s) has this coach instilled in you/athletes/or others?

He has taught us all to be better player through our focus, our respect for the game and most of all, our respect for each other. He would never accept a player being mean, negative or disrespectful towards a teammate, official or anyone else.


What is an important skill this coach has that makes them a good coach?

Patience. Last year was my first year playing. I didn’t always fully understand the plays, so he would explain again…and again. Sometimes our plays fail, we fumble, we get confused…he has never had anything, but positive and constructive criticism. I have been involved in organized sports since I was 4, I have never had a coach as genuine and as caring as Coach Chris Williams.
