A good guy who makes the team fun, but there are a lot of areas that could improve.

Coach Valmon was an incredible athlete. Personally, I do not believe that a great athlete always makes a great coach. In my opinion, V was inaccessible at times and a poor communicator. The favorites game was definitely played and it showed. You were valued on your highs but on your lows, you barely existed. I wish this box was longer to say more.

I have ran for him for 2 years now and he is an amazing coach. He's very passionate about what he does and has taught me so much to become an all around better athlete.

Coach Valmon means well but at times his focus on putting certain athletes in the best position to do well hinders the team on a much higher magnitude than I think he notices. He can be a bit intimidating to approach after hearing what he has done to others. Overall, to me he is a nice person to me.

He is out of touch with his athletes and plays favorites. If you are not a favorite he does not care about you. If you are hurt he does not care about you. You CANNOT get a hold of him. He never replies. If you are not his event group, he does not ask you about your training or how you performed. He does not motivate or engage you.

Spends little time developing athletes that don't come in already at the top of their event. As such, he plays the recruiting game pretty hard which limits his already inaccessible schedule. I can't say much about his coaching style as I wasn't in his event group, but you only need to see the past decade of lackluster results to shape an opinion.
