The newly created program will be highly personalized for each mentor/mentee pair and will mix in-person hands-on experience with hybrid mentorship throughout the year. The mentor/mentee will work together to create a unique process that works for their individual interests and needs. Those selected will be partnered with a Spirit coach as a mentor from August 2023 – July 2024 and will receive approximately 150 hours of mentorship.
The four coach mentors who will participate in the inaugural program are Assistant Coach Angela Salem, Assistant Coach/Player Development Coach Mami Yamaguchi, Player Development Coach Moriano Imaizumi, and Assistant Coach/Director of Player Development Mike Bristol.
To apply for the inaugural cohort of mentees, interested coaches will need to:
- Submit a full resume
- Provide three references
- Explain their coaching interests and goals.
