JT is a wonderful coach. He is very knowledgeable and truly cares about players as people. He teaches us so much more than just water polo. Really nice guy and can be quite formal until you get to know him better. Cares the most about winning. Will be very supportive if you respect him. If you ask for honesty and clarity he will always give it.

JT is supportive and motivational. He understands the skills and fitness necessary for a great water polo player and water polo team. He also understands team dynamics and works to unite the team to be successful. He plays hot and cold though, sometimes giving positive, constructive feedback, and other times giving borderline hurtful comments.

Very knowledgeable and will do anything it takes to win, including ostracizing players who will not be of use to him. Absolutely loves mental games and tries to get into your head.

JT really knows the game of water polo. His system of play not only allows structure but also creativity. He is also very passionate about not just building the athlete but also the person. Criticism would be that whether he means to or not, he plays mind games with his players with where they stand in the team as well as playing time.
