Coach Huyghue shared a little more about himself in the questions below:
What are you looking forward to about coaching at LuHi?
I’m looking forward to the challenge of coaching a girls program for the first time. I’ve trained many girls from youth, high school, and college. This will be the first girls team, which I’m very excited about.
What is your personal coaching philosophy?
My coaching philosophy is pretty basic: To create a environment that encourages athletes to learn and develop on and off the playing field, and to create a positive learning environment in good and bad times. I am a coach because of my passion for my work. I am able to foster the growth of my players through the numerous opportunities I am fortunate to provide. I will mold a group of athletes to communicate, to be responsible and to hold themselves accountable. I believe in nurturing their dreams to be the best on and off the field.
What are your goals for the season - for the team as a whole, and for the players individually?
My goal for the season is to end up undefeated as champions. My overall goal is to have this program be nationally ranked in the next couple years. As for the team, my goal is to provide them the best experience they can possibly have. Giving them something they can look back on and say, "Wow! That was the best team I ever played on." When it comes to individual players, my goal is for each of them to elevate their game to a level they never expected could happen and, most importantly, have fun doing it.
