 DJ Russel: Jumps and Hurdles

USAT&F Certified Level I Coach

Coaching Experience:

I have been a track coach for eight years now with experience coaching both track and cross-country at the middle school, high school, and club level. In my time as a coach, I have been blessed to work with some amazing athletes who have set numerous state, classification, and school records. Many of our athletes have gone on to compete and receive scholarships at the NCAA D1, D2, and D3 level. This last year I got the opportunity to work with a young man who would go on to take 3rd place at the USATF Hershey National Junior Olympic Championships in Lawrence, Kansas as a sophomore in high school. We are hoping that he will be able to qualify for the USATF Junior Outdoor Championships this summer and have the opportunity to compete against the top U-20 athletes in the nation.

 

Coaching Philosophy:

I am a 7th-grade teacher and have been around the world several times. These experiences have helped shape who I am and my passion for people. This passion fuels me as both a coach and teacher. I want my students and athletes to know that everyone can bring something to any situation. They do not have to be a 10-second all-star to influence others. I always remind my student-athletes that we compete in a sport where the track will always win. There will always be a faster time or further/higher mark, but when it ends if they are leaders and treat others will then they can leave the world a better place than they found it.

 

Background:

I am a USATF Level 1 Certified Coach and had the opportunity to study under Master coaches here in town and at the national level. I look to give my student-athletes an advantage based off of proven scientific training methods. I received my Bachelor's degree from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, and intend of enrolling at the University of Florida Masters Program for Educational Leadership.

Andrea Shuler

  USAT&F Certified Level 1 Coach

Coaching Experience: I've been coaching for 4 years (3 of which at Sierra HS). Also had the opportunity to coach for CSTC this past summer. I am excited to be in a position to continue growing high schoolers as athletes and young adults. 

Personal Accomplishments: Sports used to be my life; but of all that I've played, I've always loved basketball and track more! I grew up playing basketball for the majority of my life, but began to branch out by running track from middle school and through high school. I ran everything from the 400m to the 1600m (including relays) for Liberty High School, here in Colorado Springs. The 4x800 took me to State back to back years and I received a letter in track each year. I also have experience in long distance, being a former State Cross Country competitor as well. 

Background: Colorado semi-native, sports nut, dog lover, elementary school teacher, and Sand Creek Head T&F Coach. Fitness, strengthening, and developing mental endurance have been crucial in my life. It's rewarding to teach others through sports.
