I have been coaching Ultimate at Mounds View for 5 seasons and have enjoyed watching all the players grow over the years. We have had much success in the seasons I have coached, culminating in a 2nd place finish in the State Tournament last season. I fell in love with ultimate in my senior year at Mounds View and have never looked back.

What I want for the JV team this year:
This is my first year coaching ultimate frisbee. I love what Ultimate has brought into my life. Great friendships, competition and so much fun.
I hope my players come to love the game for the unique things it has to offer: the commitment to fair play and respect for the opponent that is necessary in a self-officiated competitive sport as well as the thrill of putting the throw in the right place at the right time, making a defensive shutdown, being part of spectacular athletic sport and working together as a team.
