More About Coach Kaitlin

My coaching experience includes participating in multiple camps such as: Moreau Catholic High School’s Knight’s Summer Basketball Camp, Stanford Women’s Basketball Elite Camp, and Hoops413 Basketball Camp. When I was residing in the Bay Area, I also coached different aged AAU teams for an organization named, Hayward Swoosh. With assisting those teams, I have trained athletes one on one to help improve their knowledge and skill of the game. I have coached/trained athletes from a preschool level up to high school, but typically work with school aged children.

I began playing basketball in the 2nd grade, and have been in love with the game ever since then. I played for my elementary school from 2nd-8th grade & led my team to 3 Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) Championships. In 6th grade I began playing on an AAU team named, Hayward Swoosh. We traveled to different cities and states & went up against top ranked teams in the nation. When I entered high school, I made the Girls’ Varsity Basketball Team, as a freshman, and was in the starting line up all 4 years. Throughout my 4 years in high school I received awards for best offensive & defensive player, 1st team for multiple tournaments, and student-athlete honors. During my sophomore year, at the first round of playoffs, I tore my ACL in the first 5 minutes of the game. I had surgery to get it reconstructed & did physically therapy for 9 months until I was fully prepared to get back on the court. It was more of the mental aspect that I needed to overcome, but I came back to practice ready to work.

Playing at the collegiate level has always been a dream of mine. And as senior season approached, that was my main focus. To stay focused on my studies while working hard to get better on the court. During the middle of the season I began getting recruited by a D2 school, Notre Dame de Namur University and a Junior College, Ohlone College. As the season came to an end, I visited both schools and got to watch the teams practice. But NDNU offered me a partial athletic scholarship and that is where I decided I wanted to go. However, the coach that recruited me had stepped down when I was about to start, and I came on as the only freshman on the team. So I had to work extra hard to prove myself to a new coach who has never seen me play. I worked hard to get a spot in the starting line up a few times throughout the season, but things did not turn out the way I wanted them to. I ended up transferring to De Anza College, to improve my game & get stronger as a player.

A typical session may consist of starting off with fundamental dribbling and shooting drills to warm up. Then I like to focus on drills that may benefit the athletes when they encounter different situations in practices/games, depending on the position he/she plays. I would also incorporate strength and conditioning into the session to build stamina as well as mental toughness. I also want to emphasize the importance of stretching and keeping the client’s body healthy.
