Hi, fellow coaches,

To be brief, I'd like to offer my services to any Northern Virginia FLL teams interested in having a Core Values mentor.

To give a short summary of my history with FLL, I've co-coached a team for the last two seasons, primarily focusing on Core Values and teamwork.  Last year, our team (The Cellar Dwellers) was awarded the Champions Award for Division I at the 2012 VA/DC FLL Championship.  They went on to compete at the California LEGOLand FLL Open Invitational this past May, and were even considered for the Teamwork Award at the national competition.

Before co-coaching, I mentored The Sea Monsters for a season, and before that, I was a competitor for four years.  Every year I was a competitor, my teams (The Sea Monsters and Hakuna Matata) went to the VA/DC FLL State Championship tournament, and during my final year of competition, my team won second place for the Division II Teamwork award at States.

The Cellar Dwellers team members decided to pursue other interests this year.   Since I want to continue to coach, I would like to be a roving Core Values mentor.  I can come to one (or more) of your team's practices, talk about gracious professionalism, go over the core values rubric, perform a teamwork exercise, and give the team constructive criticism as to how they can improve. Core values are vital to FLL.  Whether you're an experienced team or are just starting out, it's always important to include and reflect on the founding ideas of FIRST. 

My available time is limited to Sundays and select Saturdays, so if you or your team have any interest, please let me know soon so I can make sure I visit your team. Please email me at [log in to unmask]

Good luck to all of your teams this season!
