Coaches secret: Doing what’s right

SEEMS THE SECRET to success is really no secret at all.

Both triumphant NAPSAC coaches – Williams Industries West Terrace’s Roderick Harmon and Alphonza King of Charles F Broome – believe their teams’ continual success boils down to each athlete being willing to stay the course and just do their job.

King and Harmon expressed the sentiment following yesterday’s final day at the National Stadium where they won the girls’ and boys’ titles respectively.

“It just comes down to doing what you did in the zone, doing what you did in the quarters and see if you can improve on what you did at the semi-finals,” explained Harmon just moments after West Terrace secured their third straight boys’ crown.

“But the main focus is just to remain focused. It starts with having talented children and then exposing them to the skills, staying healthy and avoiding anything that can cause unnecessary injuries.”

The comments were almost identical to those made by King, who has seen both his girls and boys routinely place in the top three of the points table by simply preaching consistency and hard work.

“The plan was always just to go out there and do what you’re supposed to do, then make sure you medal,” reasoned King, who saw his girls upend defending champs St Stephen’s for the title before his boys fell just short of unseating West Terrace. (JM)
