Girls’ Volleyball

Jack Goetz

Coach Mr Kyle Walsh believes that his best strength is his ability to relate and communicate with his athletes. He also thinks, “When a coach shows that they care about the person and not just the athlete, you see the best response.”

His  main goal as a coach is to use volleyball as a way of preparing young men and women to be mature, contributing members of society.  He wants the members of the volleyball program to hold themselves to very high standards, and he likes to think that it gets kids ready for the real world after high school.

As far as his long term goals, Mr. Walsh would like to stay at Pattonville as long as he can.  He states that he owes a lot to the school as a former student and now coach.  It has given him the greatest opportunity of his  life, and he works hard to pay them back every year.

Volleyball was always very fun for Mr.Walsh,  and he fell in love with coaching it almost 10 years ago.  He finds it much more of a hobby than a career, because he claims being on the court it doesn’t feel like work.

During volleyball season, they expect a lot out of  the athletes. Performance in the classroom is more important that on the court, and if players are unable to maintain a set GPA, they are not eligible to play.

Finally, Mr. Walsh tries to learn from his mistakes and look for as much feedback as he can get while reflecting on his end of the season.  “Learning new strategies on teaching young adults is also very helpful.”
