Dwayne is great. The workouts are specific to the things that are areas of focus. A great teacher who is very patient with his athletes. Fantastic eye for technique flaws and gearing workouts to correct.

Coach Dwayne has gone above and beyond any expectations I had or my daughter had. In just the first session he was able to pinpoint her weaknesses and started working on them right away. I see a big difference in such a short period of time. His words are always encouraging and he takes the time to explain why he has her doing certain workouts and how it will help her. There's no question, he's a coach that cares about his athletes. Thanks Coach Dwayne for everything you do!
