Kimberly Hamilton "As a young athlete, basic skills of specific sports can be taught through team practices and clinics/camps. However, for those who are in need of specialized training such as: strength and conditioning, agility, speed/quickness or overall stamina may want to invest in some extra athletic coaching. Being an athlete and knowing I wanted to compete at the highest level provided a strong background and many years of experience that I want to pass on to other athletes. Ultimately, these factors also pushed me to engage in a career in sport and exercise and have allowed me to work with many athletes, young and old, sharing personal and team achievements by reaching goals."
