More About Coach Robert

Emerging from the youth track and field arena, Coach T has several years of extensive coaching and mentoring experience. Coach T’s roots began at the Youth and Professional levels. Coach T’s devotion and love of the sport is evidenced by hundreds of youth level athletes and their success at national championship events. Over the past 20 years, Coach T guided 18 national youth champions, including a national record holder in the pentathlon. Under his direction, he qualified over 200 youth athletes to the national championships. Coach T’s passion and dedication has transformed athlete’s lives. Several athletes have received athletic scholarships to major universities and colleges around the country, including UCLA, University of Washington, Cal Poly San Louis Obispo, Long Beach State, and Oregon Tech.

Coach T’s unique approach to motivating athletes to achieve beyond their capabilities has allowed him to enjoy success within the community college ranks, beginning at Fresno City College and currently at Modesto Junior College. In 2001, Coach T’s efforts were instrumental in the success of the MJC Women’s Track & Field Program placing sixth in the California State Junior College Championships. Throughout the years, Coach T’s enthusiasm and dedication to the sport has resulted in numerous Northern California and State Track & Field Championship individual qualifiers at the community college level. His athletes still hold six school records and add to the depth of the MJC all-time list.

From 2007-2010, Coach T’s expertise has made a significant impact at the high school level. As an assistant track and field coach at Grace Davis High School, he amassed over 40 league champions, and sent over 100 athletes to the section championships. In particular, Coach T worked with three athletes who earned scholarships to NCAA Division I institutions. Kyanna Thomas, who earned a full-ride scholarship to San Diego State University (SDSU), ran a personal best of 55.54 in the 400m, qualified for the California State Championships, and was victorious at both the Arcadia Invitational and Sacramento Meet of Champions. At SDSU, Kyanna was named “Freshman of the Year,” and All-Region. Coach T also guided Justin Nesbitt to a scholarship at Sacramento State University where he was named “Freshman of the Year” and earned All-Big Sky honors. During this time, Shea Taylor, who was a California state qualifier in the long jump, received a scholarship to Brigham Young University.

Research and currency in the field has played an important part in Coach T’s ongoing excellence as a successful coach and teacher. Coach T has been invited to speak and present at The Nor-Cal All Sports Clinic (speakers included NFL, MLB, and Olympic Coaches), UNLV Track & Field Clinic, and MJC’s learn-by-Doing Clinic. Locally, Coach T worked with Hughson High School Girls Basketball as a speed and agility coach. Coach T’s expertise and knowledge of sprinting mechanics has translated into success for local football players. Alex Renaga, a Riverbank standout free safety, had nine interceptions due to Coach T’s efforts. As a result, Coach T was offered a position as a consultant/coach for the 2012 California All-Star Football Game.

Coach T’s dynamic and energizing approach to teaching, is a skill which allows his athletes to translate knowledge into peak performances. Coach T’s topics include motor learning through stretching techniques, speed development, and drills that promote rhythm, coordination and flexibility, all of which increases reaction time. With Coach T’s training, athletes will increase aerobic capacity, muscular strength, speed, power, agility, and overall fitness. Coach T’s certifications include National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association (NESTA), the California Interscholastic Federation Coaching Certification, and is certified as a Pilates instructor. He also has a Master’s Degree in Sport Science. Coach T’s positive (reflective listening) communication style allows him to work effectively with novice athletes and elite level performers, and introduce his approach to parents and prospective athletes.

Sara loves track. She runs the 100, 200, and relay and I have a feeling that she going to improve under Coach Roberts trading methods. Coach Roberts is very easy going and makes training in track fun. He has a wealth of knowledge and years of teaching experience to share with students. In two trading sessions, he showed Sara various track training methods, from working with blocks, proper warm up and stretching drills, various core work outs, ladder and hurdle training, etc. He teaches and then explains why your training this way and how it will benefit you. Sara enjoys training and Coach Robert has a lot to teach her. We feel lucky and fortunate to call him are Coach.

Absolutely impressed with Coach T!! My daughter has shown increased levels of confidence all around. This one on one coaching was the best decision for my daughter. I will continue this method of coaching for a while because what we’ve seen so far is worth our time & our investment. My daughter feels stronger, has more direction as a runner and is more conscientious of her form & pace. She is understanding how coaching works and respects her passion on a whole new level. Thank you Coach!

I am so happy that we found Coach Robert. He is amazing!!! My daughter wanted help with her running and learning new techniques. Coach Robert has taught my daughter already new skills and it has shown in her first track meet. She has improved so much and I am very excited for the rest of the season. It is so nice to have a coach that has a positive attitude and drive and experience to help make your child the best athlete they can be.

Coach T has been great with helping my daughter in track. He helps give her confidence and teaches her the correct techniques. I would highly recommend Coach T for your athlete!

Coach Robert is the best track and field coach in the valley. From the minute I started the session to the end I was learning new techniques. I could honestly say that I was challenged and it was a pleasure working with him. I can't wait for our next session.

Coach T was my coach at MJC and he has taught me more than just track and field. He taught me how to apply the lessons from the sport to my daily life and to make it a part of who I am. Not only has he helped me get back on the track after a year of absence after high school, but he also helped me move on to pursue my goals at the four-year level at CSU Sacramento. He was there when I got married and he also helped me get a job straight out of my master's program. Throughout all this, he always genuinely wanted to know how my life has been going since the day one. Coach T will go above and beyond for his student-athletes and you can sleep well at night knowing that he will teach how to live life outside of the sport. - Jeffrey Paneda
