    "Debra is the inspirational player every team wanted. Her enthusiasm, work ethic, and spirit were always a source of motivation at trainings. People simply wanted to be on her team. She brings nothing less to Coaching Girls' Soccer Successfully . Her approach to teaching and knowledge of the fundamentals make individuals and teams improve. But what LaPrath really excels at are the off-the-field aspects of team unity, player development, leadership, and communication that consistently build a successful program.
