My name is Chris E., "Coach E", and I am entering my senior year at Kennesaw State University. I am attaining my Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Health Science. My goal is to go through graduate and doctoral school and become a college professor. After graduation with my Bachelor's degree in the Fall of 2013, I will sit through the Coordinated Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) test offered by the national American College of Sports Medicine (National ACSM) which would qualify me as a professional strength and conditioning coach to work with professional and collegiate athletes. I will also sit through the Exercise Specialist test to become a certified personal trainer.
I have been involved in various sports since childhood. I played baseball for over 10 years, basketball for 8 years, soccer for 4 years, tennis for 2 years, track and field for 1 year, and football for 9 years. Those sports are the ones that I have played in an organized setting. I've also participated in intramural sports at Kennesaw State which include volleyball, softball, badminton and indoor soccer.
Likewise, beyond having an in depth knowledge of the strategies that go along with each respective sport, I have spent the last two years refereeing Intramural Sports at Kennesaw State University. As an intramural referee I am in charge of refereeing sports ranging from Football all the way to the obscure sports like Indoor Hockey. This shows my ability to also know the rules of the game and know how to play legally within those boundaries.
I am looking to get my career started by being an individual developmental coach for any participants who have a drive to become better at their sport. I believe that sports give children a great way to shape their character and help them assimilate into future endeavors. I like to teach competitiveness with a respect for the game. Teamwork, cooperation, and individual skill are all components that make up a successful, skillful athlete. Berating, belittling or making fun of other participants is completely unacceptable and will be taken care of likewise.
I hope to hear from you concerning you, your son or daughter, or a group of them and their friends. I am passionate about sports and the life lessons that can be taught under the right direction. Sports have a way of connecting people to higher principles that are required in daily life. Teamwork, cooperation, planning, execution, communication, and overall development of interpersonal skills can all be taught and transferable beyond the lines on the field or the court.
