Women's Basketball Coach

Posted: February 7, 2020


Briercrest Athletics is dedicated to preparing student athletes to become life champions through a transformational experience led by coaches who have moved past being solely transactional focused (using any form of motivation to gain the required performance) and are becoming transformational focused in all they do. Transformational coaching is focused on the person. It communicates, “I am here as a coach to help you grow not just as an athlete but as a whole person.” It has high performance expectations which requires the coach to understand the spiritual, mental, emotional and physical obstacles that each athlete is facing and how to help the athlete and team overcome the obstacles through a transformational process from the inside out.
