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.
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 better athletes. 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.
85% of all youth coaches are parents and volunteers in which more than 80% have no real expertise or training in youth Athletic Development. Those are not the people who make up our team at DX3. 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!
By placing children ages 8 through 18 in age- and gender-specific performance training, our coaches create an opportunity to learn what serves your student athlete best. With a personalized approach and recipe for success that works, our young athletes get stronger, get faster and become more agile than ever in a safe, tried program. More than 1m young athletes have proven the DX3 program works.

VP Training & DX3 Co-founder
BS Science, CPT, DX3 Youth Performance Director
Growing up with parents who were both sport and strength and conditioning coaches, performance training has been part of my entire life. Being a kid trapped in an adults body has allowed me the skill set I need to pursue my love and passion for working with kids. Understanding the importance of engagement, connection, attention span and just plain old FUN, helps me provide kids the most positive experience while training. By getting kids exciting about training and making it something they look forward to, we can create passion for pursuing a healthy lifestyle before, during and after sports. This can, has, and will continue to change the course of kids lives! "Training youth athletes with a smile on my face and a song in my heart building champions."
Goals: To put others in a position to be successful and make everybody around me better!
Sara Fusco AKA “The Professor”

BS Biology, Operations and Logistics Specialist
Being a teacher, coach, and athlete at heart, it is only natural that kids are a huge part of my life. Teaching for over 20 years, coaching 20 and playing soccer for 21, my life is teaching, sports and training kids. Teaching high school science allows me the ability to cross-pollinate teaching into every training session and training into every classroom lesson. I believe that athletes must grow in knowledge and understanding to truly implement the mechanics and techniques necessary to progress as an athlete. By keeping the training fun, intense, and progressive, I strive to engage athletes gaining their trust helping them sharpen their sword.
