Program Expectations/Coaching Philosophy:

I am a firm believer that athletics and school activities are an important part of a young adult's life. Athletes should have an experience that they will remember and share with their family and friends as they grow. Being an athlete helps instill dedication, hard work, time management, social skills, communication skills, humbleness and teamwork. Helping students become more confident and watching student athletes grow into the young adults they are starting to become makes coaching very inspirational.

Upcoming Season Goals:

Upcoming season goals for both the girls and boys teams are to end the season with winning records and qualify as many kids as we can for the EPC Championships and District XI Championships. Ultimately, the hope is to get some of our kids to the PIAA State Meet. 

Off-Season Programs/Summer Camp Announcements:

Off-season work usually starts in the late fall through intramural sports. There are also announcements of local clinics and camps at ESU throughout the year.
