Working with young athletes, parents, and other coaches to create a strong team filled with individuals who excel both on and off the court is Kennedy’s guiding principle and his ideal workplace environment. He loves to see determined players take ideas, internalize and develop them, and manifest their team’s collective goals on the court.
