Sports have been a crucial part of my physical, mental and emotional growth for as long as I can remember.  Coaching, mentoring, and facilitating experiences is the best way I can think of to pass on some of the life lessons I have learned.  I truly believe that though we cannot prevent adversity in kids’ lives, we can help them build tools to navigate anything that comes their way.”
