Meet Coach Dustin (CPT, YARD Owner):
I first developed this passion for coaching, training and teaching young athletes in 2003. Since my first day managing a little league team I knew that coaching was going to be a key component in my life. Over the years I have studied and attended countless classes in leadership, exercise science, coaching philosophies, youth physical development, martial arts, and other components that have benefited my coaching career. I am a certified NASM personal traininer (CPT). I have held board positions on multiple non profit youth athletic programs and have coached a variety of sports to include everything from T-Ball to High School football and baseball. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with your athlete to help them be stronger, increase their endurance, sharpen their agility/speed, develop their leadership skills and ultimately prepare them to compete.
Meet Coach Michelle:
I have been teaching at the middle school and high school levels in a variety of subjects for six years. I am certified and experienced in teaching the ABEKA curriculumand I enjoy helping students reach their potential. My favorite part of teaching is seeing a student understand a concept and watching them continue to grow. I have helped develop programs that get students involved in the community. Watching the kids of our community learn and grow into contributing members of society is something that I am passionate about.
Meet Coach Sam:
Watching when a child grasps what they are learning is my biggest joy in teaching. It’s the reason I became a teacher after years of volunteering in my own children’s classrooms. I am a graduate from St. Martin’s University with a degree in Elementary Education with a focus on reading. After taking a few years off to be a caregiver for my elderly mother, I am happy to be once again working with students again so I can watch them grow academically. In my free time, me and my husband are avid in Relay For Life and putting an end to cancer.
