Feb 2015 - Kirk Handy
Kirk Handy - February Coach of the Month
Chosen Attribute (Teamwork, Excellence, Serving, and Integrity): Serving
Why is this attribute important to you?
I believe in order to be a successful coach you need to learn to serve your team.
What is your favorite scripture verse? Why is this important to you?
Proverbs 16:3 - Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plans.
It is a daily reminder to me to commit each day to the Lord.
Who is your favorite coach outside of hockey? Why?
Tony Dungy is my favorite coach outside of hockey because of the way he motivates his players and coaches.
What is your dream coaching job (if different than your current position)?
I am living my dream job by coaching at Liberty University.
Share a recent coaching highlight that you have had.
This season we have had our guys involved in 2 different areas. One is that they are sharing their faith with other teams at after game pizza dinners. And the second way is by praying as a team on the ice after each game.
Tell us a little bit about your coaching philosophy. Why do you coach? Who is a coach who had a big impact on you? What ways are you able to make an impact for Jesus at the ice rink?
The reason I coach is to make a difference in the lives of each of our players, coaches and staff. My faith is the motivation behind my coaching philosophy. It energizes me to make a positive difference in the lives of those around me. My desire is to be an example for Christ by the way I live my life.
