Interview with Coach Cox

Christopher Cox has been coaching RUHS girls’ soccer for four years. He is beloved by the athletes on his team and works hard to find the perfect balance between pushing the girls to improve, as well as keeping it fun. I sat down with Coach Cox to find out more about his goals for the team and his passions outside of soccer.

Q: How long have you been coaching RUHS girls soccer?

A: This will be my fourth year.

Q: What are your goals for this season?

A: The goals for every season are always to improve from the beginning to the end and have everybody return again next year.

Q: How does the team look this year?

A: We are quite strong. It is a very busy season, lots of games in a short amount of time, so hopefully we can avoid lots of injuries we are going to do very well.   

Q: What do you enjoy most about coaching?

A: What I enjoy most is when a team really starts to come together not necessarily on the field, but as a group and they behave as a team and they work together as a team, I like to see that the most.

Q: What is the biggest challenge you face coaching?

A: The biggest challenge is to always keep it fun, because it is a game and it needs to be fun and we always play better and work harder when it is fun, so that is my biggest challenge every day.

Q: What do you like to do when you are not coaching?

A: I really enjoy science and I work as a scientist at the U of A. I also really enjoy cooking with my wife and skiing.
