    Baxter, Gord : Girls 15U Red Assistant Coach

    Baxter, Gord

    Girls 15U Red Assistant Coach

    Gord is returning for his third season in his new Durham Attack career and is extremely excited about the year ahead. Gord has coached boys of all age levels for Durham Attack in the late 90’s into the early 2000’s. He took a break from coaching at the club level when he started a family in 2002 and now has  three wonderful children who are playing the game.  Last year, he coached the Durham Attack 14U Red team and is looking for more great achievements for the girls this coming season.

    Gord is a teacher at Port Perry High School and has coached high school teams, both boys and girls, for over 20 years, winning numerous LOSSA championships and have made several appearances at OFSAA.  He is  a level 3 volleyball referee, starting refereeing when he was 16 years old, and this has been another way to give back to the sport that he loves.

    Gord coaches because he loves helping young athletes to develop. Developing skills on the volleyball court is only part of it. He truly believes that athletes who play on teams develop skills that they will use their entire life. Teamwork, responsibility, hard work, the ability to cope with adversity and reliability are skills that people need long after their volleyball playing career is over. He has had coaches when he was a young athlete that inspired him and taught him those skills and he hopes to be able to pass the things he has learned onto the young people he works with.

He has been with Durham Attack for more than 6 years and is a very strong developmental volleyball coach, teaching our athletes not only solid technical skills and foundations, but also soft skills related to team work, drive and focus that athletes must have to be successful. He is a very passionate individual and his #1 priority is the development of the player, both on and off court.

    Troy has a background in Psychology/Sociology and has undergone additional training in Sports Psychology / Youth Sports Psychology and applied team dynamics, ensuring the athletes work together, not against one another.

Troy’s first priority is the players having confidence in themselves, feeling like they truly are an important part of the team. Troy sets both technical skill and behavioural goals for the players and team each year that are achievable and ensures that players and coaches are aligned toward the goal.

    Ian also runs very successful Teambuilding and Leadership weekends for club and university teams. These weekends quickly bond the athletes and their coaching staff early in the season which develops camaraderie, communication and trust.

    Finally, during the day, and sometimes nights, Ian is a Platoon Chief with the Pickering Fire Services.

    All of these experiences contribute to making Ian an extremely well-rounded coach. His focus has always been on the complete player and development of the whole athlete, and of the team as a unit.
