My Why

My name is Sensei Dave Armstrong,

I grew up as an "at-risk" youth. 

My mom died when I was 12 and I bounced from group home to foster home and to juvenile detention centers.  

I want to ensure we impact our youth in a more meaningful and positive way.  We can and must do better.  Showing up here is one way we all can "do better."  

seek knowledge to make a bigger impact with the youth you mentor or have.

Coach Cordell

Coach Cordell is a highly energetic and outgoing individual. He beat all odds by overcoming many hardships in his childhood; living in homeless shelters and watching his mother battle drug addiction and abusive relationships. At a young age, he struggled to fit in, causing him to make some bad choices along the way. As he began to recognize his potential, his confidence grew exponentially. That’s when he decided to use his circumstances as an opportunity and not a crutch. Cordell became a leader in his community and amongst his peers and inspired others to do the same. His positive impact and energy influence others to be at their absolute best.
