Welcome Coach Teesy!

We are excited to announce the addition of Teesy Rogers to the Striders Coaching Team. CoachTeesy will focus primarily on working with beginner and developing runners. She will offer alternate workouts specific to the needs of newer runners several times a week.

Coach Teesy may be new to the coaching team but she’s no stranger to running! She has a long history as a competitive runner herself and has applied her passion to helping kids develop their love of the sport. Since 2012, she has acted as creator and Head Coach of the Lowe Cross Country team -  making it one of the most successful elementary school xc programs in the region. The team grew from zero to more than 100 runners and finished 2nd in State three out of their six seasons. Teesy was awarded Coach of the Year in 2016.

Coach Teesy’s philosophy is to maintain the spirit of youth athletics and individual confidence in a positive and supportive atmosphere while focusing on individual goal setting, team spirit, sportsmanship, leadership skills, hard work, and FUN! Her ultimate goal is that any child, regardless of skill, can participate in and enjoy the sport and grow to be a lifelong runner.
