Some people are lucky enough to find their passion early in life, John is one of those people. John has been a key part of the FCRC staff since 2013, and loves bringing his energy, passion, and knowledge of the game to the court everyday to help his players improve their game and have fun on the court.
Over the years, he has helped his students win USTA tournaments, club championships, make their varsity high school teams, beat their friends in weekly grudge matches, and most importantly, love coming out to the courts.
He is the only person in FCRC history to win both a junior and adult club championship.That first hand experience of being a top club player at both the junior and adult levels has helped him relate to the struggles his players face on a daily basis, and how to best overcome them.
While he will work closely with Mike to refine his paddle game and teaching style, John is no stranger when it comes to paddle. He has been involved in paddle as both a player and teacher over the winters that he was home from college on break, and is excited for the opportunity to spend more time on the paddle court.
John graduated from the University of Minnesota in the spring of 2019 where he was a member of the squash team, sales team, and the Carlson School of Management.
