We are proud to announce that Adam Petrie of the Halton Hurricanes Volleyball Club has been awarded the TeamSnap Coach of the Month for the month of March! Adam will be rewarded with six months of TeamSnap’s best plan for free, a $108 value!
Adam is the head coach of Hurricanes 12U Girls and assistant coach of Hurricanes 15U Girls. His nominator says:
Adam is every parent's dream. Somehow he manages to corral, motivate and brilliantly raise the skill level of a group of energetic 11-year-old girls without ever raising his voice, glaring, or even promising candy. We can only hope to be as effective and influential with our girls at home as Adam is with the Hurricane 12U team.
Adam’s calm approach and encouragement comes with the added benefit that he is a superb technical coach. The difference in skills between the team that emerged from the tryouts to the one now running plays and pounding spikes cannot be overstated. You know Adam has played the sport at the highest level, but he has a very clear way of communicating the basics to beginners. It is so critical at this point in a young athlete’s life to be able to learn, and not every coach knows how to instruct in a way that is effective to their group. Adam does.
Pride, growth, skills, resilience…these are characteristics we all hope to see in our children and it’s incredibly satisfying to find them supported and improved upon by the coach of your child’s team.
Congratulations Adam and thanks for everything you do!
