Welcome to my new website! Please join me this spring and summer for all the sports fun and fitness your family can handle!! I guarantee my new programs will instill confidence and build self-esteem in your child. CDG Sports programs were specifically designed with your child in mind. I take an approach from a kid's point of view - their goals, desires, needs and how we can best meet them. My business motto is "Sports for All, All for Fun". Together let's help our kids stay active, healthy and strong, now and for the future. Coach Dave Gray, CDG Sports
Mountain biking with CDG Sports will teach your child the basics of trail riding and bike maintenance. This will be an excellent class for those looking to enhance both their biking skills and athletic ability. Mountain biking is not only an excellent way to strengthen both the cardiovascular and muscular aspects of an athlete, but also reaction time and spatial awareness among many other crucial athletic abilities! Our class will start with drills off the trails before we pedal our way through the trails in order build confidence, learn proper skills, teach trail etiquette, and demonstrate how to fix that pesky chain that pops off! I hope to create a passion for a wonderful sport that will keep your child happy, active and healthy for life!

I’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.

In today’s tight-budget, high stakes, teach-to-the-test world of secondary education, states and districts have largely forced traditional physical education to the wayside. 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.
"The best athletic programmer and coach for kids in Pittsburgh! The Montessori Childrens Community private school In Sewickley is also lucky to have him teach their PE classes. Coach Dave has greatly raised the bar for physical education at this school while making sportsmanship and postive reinforcement his number one priority. My kids love coach Dave and so does everyone who is lucky enough to have him work with their kids in any way whether it be through his summer camps and after school programs or just super fun birthday or neighborhood social gatherings. Keep up the great work Coach Dave and thank you!"
