Chuck’s love for running and helping young people goes way back. For eighteen years he coached at the collegiate level, both Track and Field and Cross Country. He served on the National Collegiate Athletic Association Track and Field and Cross Country National Committee for five years, and as chair for two years. He has coached All Americans and beginners and loved it all. He also managed to earn his IAAF Level 5 and USATF Level 3 coaching certifications (both terminal), and received his Master’s Degree from Washington University in St. Louis. He brings all of his expertise and experience into working with young people in underserved populations. His program designs combine the best in sports science, a deep respect for all kids, and a love for play. His early years as a middle school dorm parent and high school coach in a variety of sports also serves him well, as does having raised two boys who loved to run and play!
