Coach: Mike Verkaik
American Ambassador for Oceans Ministries
24th year coaching (32nd overall)
Competing in athletics during high school and college gave me great joy, and provided me with many opportunities to grow as a person both physically and spiritually. Many of the qualities that I have developed in my life originated and were molded through athletics: perseverance, dedication, hard work, confidence, and a growing trust that our Abba is in control and is my Rock when I am fearful. It brings me fulfillment and joy when I can impact a student athlete in a similar way, as together we strive to reach goals and release our fears and trust in Him more.
