"A Great Coach finds a way to connect with the many different personalities he encounters in such a way that gives each individual the same of benefit of his knowledge, experiences and successes."
At Veit we believe coaching athletes is about much more than just teaching the right moves or position. We believe its about building confidence, helping to always find a way and valuing hard work and humility over the win. We truly believe that in order to be your best at anything you do, you have to love what you're doing. Veit's Instructors strive to connect with each athlete in a way that supports and encourages hard work, drive and desire.
