Coaching Philosophy

As coaching staff, we believe in the development of each player as a young lady, teammate, and an athlete.  We want each individual to reach their full potential in softball and in all aspects of their life. 
We will celebrate our successes and learn from our failure.  We will try to teach grit and a different growth mindset.  We want out players mentally tough to take on any obstacles they face on the field and in their life.  We want out young ladies to develop self confidence and a positive self-image that they define for themselves,not by others.

Core Values
Along with our philosophy of helping young ladies reach their full potential, we strongly believe in these 4 core values that define the NWS softball program.

1. Integrity- "I am what my actions say I am"
We will take ownership of our actions, on  and off the field

2. Commitment- "Individual commitment to a group effort- that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work"
We expect players to commit to be the best athlete and person you can be. 

3. Grit- "Humans are creatures of habit. If you quit when things get tough, it gets that much easier to quit the next time. On the other hand, if you force yourself to push through it, the grit begins to grow in you"
We want all of our players to play with passion and live their lives that way as well.

4. Joy- "Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing as activity but in doing it"
We don't need a $5 trophy to define our happiness and success at NWS.  Hardware will collect dust somewhere, but these life lessons and joyful memories will remain forever.
