We get questions all the time about our coaching staff. Who are they? How do they get involved? Why do they coach women’s football? Do they get paid?
All of our coaches are volunteers. They dedicate anywhere from 10 to 25 hours a week helping players grow, coaching them, watching film, organizing depth charts, and in many cases, volunteering at team events as well.
We took the time to sit down with one of our coaches in particular, LJ Jennings. LJ is the defensive coordinator and primary defensive backs coach. He also acts as our running backs coach as well.
Here’s what LJ has to say about his experience with the Majestics.
WHY DO YOU COACH WOMEN’S TACKLE FOOTBALL?
They’re always looking for ways to get better and improve. With men, a lot of times it become monotonous and the passion isn’t there. Here they wanna play- it’s a lot of fun.”
What makes a good football player?
“Someone who is coachable (humble), pushes themselves, and demands the players around them to do the same.
You want players who self-motivate. If you have players like that with a motor to play, you’ll always have a chance.”
