In the course of coaching youth sports and training youth athletes for over 18 years, I’ve learned many lessons and discovered so much about myself and about the kids I work with. A lot has changed from when I began coaching in the 90s when I was twenty something to now in my forties. But over the course of all those years, all those teams, and all those faces, one thing didn’t change…a child’s wholehearted expectation that he or she should and would experience fun, camaraderie, and positive competition by joining and participating in organized sports.
I’m not sure why, but I’ve been reflecting on my own coaching career lately the mistakes I’ve made, the successes I’ve had, the moments that made me cry (literally) and the moments that made me smile and say this is the reason I do this. I’d like to share some of my reflections with you in a list titled “I Wish I Knew…” Things that twenty something Coach Dave didn’t recognize, but forty something Coach Dave acknowledges now.
CDG Sports has been growing in the Pittsburgh area in the past few years. We now run multiple After School Programs, run several school field days and picnics, and run camps at Sports and Courts, Blueberry Hill Park, North Park, and several different parks in the Cranberry Township area. This summer alone, CDG Sports ran camps at all of the listed locations plus worked in conjunction with Early Years Child Care, Ingomar Swim Club, and Zang Taekwondo.
It is an exciting time for our community, and in order for us to continue our growth and touch as many lives as we can, Coach Cody will be running the CDG Sports Birthday Parties at Sports and Courts! Coach Cody has been with Coach Dave for over three years and has been running CDG Sports’ birthday parties for the past two years. Currently, Coach Cody is the Lead Coach at CDG Sports and runs programs at Sports & Courts, North Park, and Cranberry Township as well as doing 5-10 birthday parties in a month!
Please note that all birthday parties starting November 1 and on will be scheduled with Coach Cody. He is excited to continue the tradition of unforgettable sports fun and parties! As Coach Cody says, “We’re in the business of making memories!”
In order to reach more kids and bring his fun and games to a greater population, Coach Dave will continue to run, develop, and expand CDG Sports programs, camps, after school programs, field days and special events. If you would like Coach Dave and CDG Sports to run your school, company, or large event, please contact email@example.com.
We at CDG Sports are excited about all the growth that we have experienced since Coach Dave’s first camp at Blueberry Hill Park in 2004 that was attended by 20 campers. CDG Sports Ultimate Sports Camp has grown to 4 week-long summer camps with nearly 300 campers per camp! Please remember that our commitment to “Sports for All, All for Fun” will never change and we will continue to provide you and your children with memories and positive experiences that cannot be replicated anywhere else.
Hope to see you soon!
Coach Dave Gray & CDG Sports Staff
I’m Coach Cody, and Coach Dave’s right hand man for over three years now, and have loved it every step of the way! From the sunny days at summer camp to the icy cold training days of Ready, Set, Run, I’ve been there through it all. My experience has been nothing short of spectacular. After graduating from Penn State University and beginning to work at CDG Sports, I have had the opportunity to work with many amazing children of the community. I bring all the enthusiasm, encouragement, and experience to programs I teach, whether it’s a fun and games Kindergarten class, or one of my athletic development classes. I believe in finding and fostering a passion in a sport that will keep you active is crucial to a lifetime of wellness. I look forward in continuing to work with the children of the Pittsburgh area.
Keep an eye out for a biking program to come to the area, Coach Cody is an avid mountain biker and can’t wait to introduce your children to the ins and outs of the wonderful world of cycling.
