Owner and coaching since March 2001

"The minute I step into the gym and see the kids' smiling faces, I am filled with the excitement and energy each "tyke" brings to our program. I feel blessed everyday for being given the opportunity to introduce children to sports in a creative and fun environment that hopefully fosters their love of sports for a lifetime. What a fantastic feeling it is to watch these children grow not only in sports but in confidence as well!"

Every week I leave smiling and with a fantastic story to share with my family. I feel blessed to have found a place where I can teach and enjoy and laugh every day."

"The number one reason kids play sports is because it’s fun. And honestly, so is coaching! Getting to know the kids, encouraging them to try something new and getting to play with them is part of what makes it so great for me. Besides having fun, coaching is so rewarding. I love the smiles that the kids give me after a word of encouragement, or a high five or a short conversation that says "I believe in you" or "you can do it". Seeing their confidence grow week after week is what I love the most. There is nothing better than seeing the child who thought they couldn’t hit the baseball, shoot the basketball or catch the football… realize that they can! SporTykes not only teaches the fundamentals of the sport to your kids, it helps their confidence. I feel blessed to be a part of it!"

"I love being a SporTykes coach because I believe that confidence is a important characteristic for a child to have. Teaching them the fundamentals of sports in a fun environment helps build their confidence on and off the field. Seeing their smiles, sharing hive fives and hugs makes me one of the luckiest coaches!"
