Her coaching accolades include: NCAA Division 1 AVCA 100+ wins club. Multiple 20+ win seasons at Western Carolina. Coach of the year in both 1990 and 1991 for the Los Padres League. Players describe her coaching style as being a very detailed fundamental coach. “I feel very strongly about solidifying strong fundamental skills as the basis to grow as a player. I love this game passionately and I try my best to pass that passion on to my players in my coaching.” Players would say she is a Coach that pushes you to be your best, has hard working practices and mixes in some fun too!

Aimee believes that consistent technical work and feedback are a must for ALL ages and skill levels but that developing and maintaining teamwork skills and great attitudes are even more critical. For her, there is an overriding emphasis on enjoying the experience as a whole and creating a lifelong love for the game. Aimee also stresses consistent hard work and respect for one another and coaches. She teaches her coaches to be kind, fair, consistent and disciplined with their kids.
