Ryan Mauro Kines 493 Professor Craig Parkes January 23, 2017 Philosophy: Part 1 1. Ideal Coaching Position (level, age, country, institution, sport, etc.) My ideal coaching position is high school varsity lacrosse. Preferably, I would like to be the head coach of North Allegheny Senior High School in Wexford, Pennsylvania. I am an alumni of the school and was a member of their varsity team for three years. It would be ideal because I want to work in Pittsburgh as a surgeon and coach during the evenings. My players would range from high school freshman to seniors and I prefer that age because I help them off the field with life decisions such as college and career choices. 2. Current Strengths My current strengths include knowledge about the sport, communication skills, being able to motivate, teaching how to handle and overcome adversity, and decision making. I have played two years of varsity lacrosse at DePauw University and learned a tremendous amount about the sport in those two years. I know what drills the players enjoy most, what drills improve the players the most and how to work a few different systems/game strategies. I know how to communicate the sport very well because I was captain of the team my senior year and had to lead through communication and example every day. Furthermore, I led the most historic season in school history my senior year and did so by motivating my team to upset some spectacular teams. Although we were highly outmatched, we worked harder and never gave up. I learned how to read people and pick certain things that motivated them most and tugged on those strings. Throughout my life I have faced lots of athletic adversities, such as tearing my right ACL sophomore year of high school, separating both shoulders at DePauw, and just recently tearing my left ACL. Despite tearing my ACL sophomore year of high school and losing all of my D1 offers, I still earned a starting spot on DePauw’s team. There are also lots of things that I have dealt with in life off the field that I would be able to help my players deal with. I played lacrosse for over a decade of my life and know what drills the players love to do during practice, and more importantly, what drills players love and get better from. I also know which drills end up hurting the players and are not worth doing.
