Talk With Coach Frontier

 

 

  • What are your academic expectations for your players both on and off season?

 

      • Very specific expectations: having good grades,effort to match your abilities and being a student first than an athlete.

 

  • How do you plan on improving as a coach from year to year?

 

      • Learn from clinics, come with new ways to fix a problem, lots of strategies to fix errors that are common with different athletes.

 

  • How does a typical day at practice look like?

 

      • For throwers, they mostly do the team warm-up. Throw shot puts than discus. Do drills ,lift 4 days a week during indoor season and 3 days a week during outdoor season, and do some core workout.

 

  • What are your strengths and weaknesses as a coach?

 

      • Strength: Have been doing throws for a long time, and very passionate about it.
      • Weakness: Have a very large group of athletes and can’t get to everyone’s needs everyday. Improving it by giving feedbacks to athletes on a weekly basis.

 

  • What are your best and worst memories in coaching?

 

      • Best memories: I take pride whenever there is personal best or sets a record, seeing the athlete enjoy the success.
      • Worst memories:I had a thrower get hit on the face by a discus and broke her nose.

 

  • What is your philosophy on discipline (during practices)?

 

      • I have very high expectations, and my throwers do what is expected of them.

 

  • What’s your favorite field event?

 

      • Shot put was my favorite field event back in high school because I wasn’t really good at discus, but I enjoy coaching discus than shot put.

 

  • What are you most looking forward to this season?

 

      • I always look forward to seeing kids improve on their best every season, and how throwers can contribute to the team’s success.

 

  • When are the big meets?

 

    • The city outdoor meet on the first week of May, Conference on the second week of May, Regionals/Sectionals on the last week of May, and state on the first week of June.
