Congratulations to our Coach of the Week - Angela Rowe
Angela Rowe is a spectacular individual – not just in coaching our youth football players at SSYS but in her daily service to the community. Many people have expressed how great they feel it is to have a female football coach in our program, but that’s not what makes Coach Rowe a great coach; it’s her undeniable love, care, and passion for the sport and her players that stands out! It’s hard to find people to volunteer their time alone, and it's extra special when you know someone is volunteering because they want to have a positive impact in a child’s life and the overall community. We’re extremely lucky to have Coach Rowe coaching at SSYS and we thank her for volunteering her time, being a role model to our players, and being a great coach! It’s our hope she will coach at SSYS for years to come and we can together encourage our young girls that football ain’t just for the boys… 😊 - SSYS Football
SSYS Football Coach of the Week: Angela Rowe
How long have you been coaching football?What age are your teams?
3rd & 4th Grade
When did you know you wanted to coach at SSYS? / How long have you been coaching
I knew I wanted to coach at SSYS when I drove up to the park the day of the Flex football camp and immediately wanted to learn and coach this particular style. I have coached multiple sports for over 12 yrs.
What do you enjoy most about coaching?
I enjoy teaching multiple positional techniques and watching young players pick a style and develop it into their own.
How do you go about motivating your players?
I start with confidence and belief. I want my players to know that they are well able and I believe in them and their efforts. I couple that with a constant reassurance even through the mistakes.
What skills/characteristics do you look for in your players?
I don’t require the player to have a high skill level, that’s my job. As far as characteristics, all I require is a tenaciously competitive spirit!
What is the biggest challenge you've had as a coach and how did you overcome it?
The biggest challenge is every time I step out on a field to coach football. And I overcome that challenge by…stepping onto the field.
What advice would you give to new coaches?
Don’t forget you are there to learn, too. Every practice, every player, every game
When not rooting for your SSYS team, who is your favorite school/sports team and/or players?
When I’m not rooting for my SSYS Saints, my favorite team is the Seattle Seahawks.
What has been your most memorable SSYS moment?
My most memorable moment so far has been watching the SSYS Saints score their first touchdown!
When you aren't coaching or watching games at the fields, what do you enjoy doing most?
I enjoy Crossfit and spending time with my family
