Coaches

John Duchouquette

Coach JD has been coaching multiple sports "successfully" for over 20 yrs.  Although he has a healthy competitive spirit, he firmly believes that at the youth level "success" is measured in the quality of the individuals experience in concert with team success.  As a former professional athlete, and a father of four boys, he always promotes a respect for the coaching role and will approach each player at every level with that privilege in mind.
