Coach Haysen is an energetic and hugely positive member of our team who has 2 years of sports coaching & child development experience.
Originally from Hong Kong, Haysen grew up in Shanghai and accepted a scholarship to continue his high school basketball career playing for the Canarias Basketball Academy in Spain, where he later committed to an offer to continue his education at Kenyon College in the U.S. and compete in the NCAA.
Being the oldest of 4 in my family, I have a lot of experience with younger children and enjoy introducing different sports to students as well as making sure everyone finds a sport to grow up with. Being patient and bringing great energy are two things I believe children pick up on easily and I try to incorporate this into every session.
I find it easy to identify strengths in the children I work with - some are born with a fondness for kicking and some are naturally good with their hands, so I try to bring out the best of these talents in my Minisport sessions.
I particularly enjoy coaching tennis as it was one of my favourite sports growing up and it is so fascinating to watch the process of children developing hand eye coordination and arm strength."
