Next up in our coaches spotlight is Arnel!
What first inspired you to get into coaching?
My younger brother inspired me to begin coaching. I started by helping him develop his game and from there my passion for coaching grew!
What's one thing you do with your players at every practice?
I always check in with them to see how their day was outside of basketball. This has really helped me connect with the players on a level that is bigger than basketball.
1 vs 2 full court! One of the best ways to help players deal with full court pressure.
What's one thing you've learned from your players?
That something as simple as a "high five" or "fist bump" can positively impact someone's day.
What do you want your players to remember the most from your training?
No matter what it is, basketball or in life, anything you set your mind to can be accomplished.
Thank you, Arnel, for caring for your players both on and off the court! Say hi to Arnel at Journey Basketball!
