TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

Marta's focus is in "good technique", which she considers is the big window to improvement at any age. She sets goals, helps the players know their own weakness, sets drills to improve those weaknesses, and pushes the players to remember the "basics" when they are playing matches- watch the ball, move your feet, and bend your knees. She believes taht improvement is most realized when a strong connection is created between the player and their coach.
