Coach Haley’s approach to training her athletes is a “not one fits all” method. Not every athlete is the same, which is why she adapts to that athletes needs and learning abilities. She incorporates a lot of different drills in her lessons and will switch them up when a drill is not achieving the goal. She has a hand on approach to coaching, so the athletes can really know and feel the movements. Coach Haley works hard to give the best tools to these athlete to achieve success and expects hard work to be put in. She also really gets them involved with the mental and physical parts by asking a lot of questions for them to fully understand the reason behind something happening.
