Here is what Stuart says about coaching volleyball:
“Coaching is more than just winning and losing — it’s about developing athletes to be leaders, encouraging them when they get down, cheering them on when the match is on the line, and celebrating all of their hard work when they come out on top.”
“He is so proud of each of his players when they make a good play. Even when I shank a pass or hit the ball into the net, he is proud of me for the effort I show. When we lose a game, he helps us improve our strategies to get better the next game. He is never overly competitive or angry. Coach Stuart is a cheerleader; he puts every ounce of himself into making me and my teammates better athletes.
“Coach Stuart has incredible enthusiasm for the team. He is very positive and encouraging and celebrates their effort. Coach Stuart comes to the gym early to give those who want extra time before each practice. He also is a great communicator to the team (and parents) about takeaways from each tournament. I love seeing how much Coach Stuart loves volleyball and loves his players – it definitely shows in everything he does!”
