Coach Cody

coach-codyI’m Coach Cody, and Coach Dave’s right hand man for nearly two 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.
P.S.
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.

The reasons seem logical: the cash-strapped district can save money on PE teacher salaries and equipment while simultaneously injecting time that had been allotted to PE activities back into the teaching curriculum, subsequently saving money and improving standardized test scores in one move. However, what research has consistently and continues to show us is that it simply isn’t quite so easy.
