EMH Instructors


Participants will receive excellent instruction from coaches with years of experience in their sports discipline. Our coaches stress the importance of providing a safe and secure setting, fundamental development of the player, and making the experience enjoyable for each student. Many of them have been college and professional players and have proven to have an interest in working with student-athletes at all levels.
  • All EMH Instructors/coaches receive training through the Effective Instructor Management Training (EIMT). This program was developed by EMH to provide our coaching staff with training in sports philosophy, sports medicine, coaching techniques, and time management.
  • EMH Sports USA is an applicant agency with the Department of Justice and all instructors/coaches are live-scanned.
  • All of our coaches are CPR & First Aid Certified
