Hi,

The USATT announced its National Team Coaching Staff.  I do not know how the selections were made.

First it should be said that all the selections are good ones.  There is no reason to question the competence of any of the members.

Were I to make such a selection, the composition would be much different.  A couple or maybe three on this list would have made my coaching team. 

There are some very remarkable coaching competencies in this country that reflect the diversity of backgrounds in the coaching profession that such a coaching squad needs to present the richness of the sport from the extensive and varied backgrounds my selections have, in addition to the proven U.S. coaching successes that have justified the admiration and recognition they have received.  

This just-selected current Coaching Staff does not reflect sufficiently the great value of international coaching competencies that the United States need to form a strong foundation.  With the absence of this coaching experiential width and breadth in this current Coaching Staff, we are left with a harmful narrowness.

This USATT National Coaching Staff is a disappointment.

Thanks

Is your list of recommended coaches available anywhere?

If you select the team purely on merit, it's not likely to be the most diverse, and vice versa. A tough selection process indeed.

I see the coaches that were selected, but I don’t see Donns picks there - did I miss something?

No worries Matt!  Donn I'd love to hear your picks / perspective on this, I've been out of the sport so I'm not super plugged into the latest developments in coaching on a national level.  Your perspective is welcome.
