Coaching Philosophy, Team Goals & Team Rules
The coaching staff of John Goar and Gail Wicklein welcome you to KMS basketball for 2013. We are proud to be your
coaches and to represent Kingston Middle School. We will create a safe, fun and professionally excellent program and an
environment where student-athletes are encouraged to do their best. Every moment of practice and games has a purpose
to help athletes develop in every area of their lives. We do not tolerate bullying, swearing, poor sportsmanship, poor
character or undisciplined play. Our atmosphere is electric, positive, powerful and generates success. Every team member
is important. This coaching staff strives to be difference makers, and provide a positive, life-changing impact on your skills
and basketball dreams. As coaches we will TEACH numerous skills. We will ENCOURAGE athletes by focusing on what they are doing well and strive for excellence and growth. And we will CORRECT and teach athletes to learn self-correction. Most important, we hope to bring our team together in an attitude of family -- an environment where all team
members help and care for one another.

*** KMS basketball players are expected to maintain total focus during practices and games. You need to pay attention
at all times and you need to eliminate distractions to the task at hand.
*** You are expected to notify a coach immediately if you believe that you are injured or ill.
*** As coaches, we expect one hundred percent positive attitude, effort and hustle. We are going to be the best by
working as hard as we can. Playing time during games will be earned. That means that if you bring your best attitude
and effort, you will earn your share of playing time, even if other teammates have greater basketball skills. Although
we always play to win, winning is not the most important thing. Playing with passion and up to your potential and
losing is preferable to playing poorly and winning.
*** We will always represent our school in a way that shows pride. We will always display positive sportsmanship to
other teams and officials.
*** You need to be at school in the classroom on the day of a game to play. If you are too sick to come to school, stay
home for the game and get well. If you have a medical, dental or orthodontics appointment for part of the school day,
this is allowed and excused. In addition, athletes must attend at least ten practices before they are eligible to play in
The coaching staff encourages good communication. Both coaches welcome any discussion of problems which occur.
