First Step Athletics is built by the community for the community. As the CEO and Founder my goal is to help our future community leaders by providing a mentoring and tutoring program incorporating a goal oriented athletic performance training. I'm confident my level of expertise and background as a teacher, coach and case worker has enabled me to build this organization from the ground up and now I'm able to give back to the same community. We are constantly expanding and forming new groups for all ages. I look forward to working with you all. Have a blessed day.

Why the name First Step Athletics?

Your first step can be the difference in a play, match and or game therefore, being able to develop a dynamic and explosive quick step will change the outcome of the competition. It does not matter if an athlete is a boy or girl, if they play football, basketball, softball, volleyball, soccer, tennis or even wrestling. Making that initial dynamic first step could be the difference in a play, a match or a game. So we believe in making your first step your best step.
