Johnny YimDENISON UNIVERSITY100 W College St. Granville, OH 43023 COACHING PORTFOLIO
_________________________________________________________________________ My philosophy encompasses hard work, respect, health, family, and finances. The athletes must develop these after they are done playing with me, and the important aspect is to give them life lessons for them to use later in their life. I want them to get a good education, learn life lessons, and have fun playing college basketball.My objective is to have the players have fun while playing college basketball. My playersare special in which they have had the opportunity to play a college sport. Not many basketball players will have the chance to do that. For the next four years, just have fun playing basketball and don’t burn yourself out. Burnout might happen, so if you do not want to play basketball, takea break. The player can always come back if they want start basketball again. My values are to help the athlete develop into a person who will be ready for the next step in their life in graduate school or a career. I want to teach the players I have the skills and terms not taught in school like respect, justice, liberty, masculinity, and femininity. Discuss openly about these topics over the course of the season and do activities related to these topics. Sports should not be where a coach just pressures their players to play a sport and win at all cost.Instead, sports should be another place to learn and to have a culture of improving oneself lead by the coaches teaching and mentoring the players. Coaching Philosophy
_________________________________________________________________________ The following are goals I want for the program. 1.HAVE FUN!!!! The game of basketball should not be involved around me forcing you to do certain plays. I want to be the person who guides the practice and games. I cannot do much during the games, so the players have to take ownership of the team and start executing the plays. 2.Engage in weekly conversations on femininity, masculinity, justice, liberty, and respect. I want to teach the players these terms to the players and for them to get a better understanding of it. Since I do need to instruct them on drills in basketball, I can also incorporate key lessons in the beginning of the practice when I have their attention. Give them a quick lesson on one of those topics and an action they can do to ingrain the lesson into their mind. 3.Improve academic performance. The goal for the team is have a high team grade point average and to strive to beat the previous seasons grade point average. 4.Keep athletes healthy and injury free by proper warmup, stretching, and cool down. 5.Promote mental, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual growth of the student-athlete. 6.Family. The team should strive to get to know each player and become inseparable with each other. 7.Have the team involved in community and university-related affairs and events. The goal is to provide care and respect to the community they live in.
