Our Team

Meet our Team

Team DX3 is not like the other guys. We are not ordinary, the same old stuff or people herding kids like cattle with no real direction or purpose. We do not see your child as one more kid in our program, they are unique, they are special, and we want to support their passion for being their best.

Yes our coaches have degrees               Yes our coaches have certifications
Yes they played college sports              Yes they are back ground checked
Yes we are professionals                        Yes we are insured
Yes we have experience                          Yes we have lot’s of experience…Blah, Blah, Blah

However, what does any of this mean if we can’t engage, excite and teach your child? So why does DX3 look, feel, act, dress, teach and lead differently? Because we are focused on connecting with, teaching and developing kids in a way that they understand and get excited about.

The most important aspect of training a child is understanding and connecting with them. We have to be creative instructors who can deliver programming they understand. One thing we have all learned in this day of social and viral media is, we can be anybody we want in the virtual world and credentials or “BIG Names” are not necessarily part of the real character and deliverable. We are not ordinary, cliché or like any of the other guys! We train kids, that’s what we do, that’s all we do!

Team DX3 is made up of passionate people who built our company through the practical influence and experience of changing kids lives by making them. Our team sees every child as an opportunity to instill life change, direction, confidence and positive values. We are different because we teach, our kids learn and the lessons are taken with them for life.

Contact our team of experts today and see how DX3 can make a difference.

Jesus loves the little children and so does Cheese. It is a blessing to have a career raising up the next generation in the DX3 environment. It takes a village to raise kids. DX3 loves being a part of that village. 

"A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another." - Jesus (John 13:34-35)

"Your people shall be volunteers in the day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth. The LORD has sworn and will not relent, "You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek."" - David (Psalm 110:3-4)
