Craig Markham is a former law enforcement officer in Ontario, Canada. He grew up in Kitchener and was involved in a number of sports and athletic programs. “Growing up, I was involved in competitive baseball, hockey, and judo” says Markham.

He was involved in the 1993 Ontario National Baseball team and helped his team take home the gold medal. He was scouted by the University of California Golden Bears but chose to remain in Kitchener for college. He was a law enforcement officer for more than a decade and enjoys getting involved with his community by coaching children’s judo.

If you want to get involved in your community, you may consider coaching a youth sport. As a coach, you may have the opportunity to meet new people and to build connections within your local community. You may find that you enjoy giving back to others and helping children learn how to play a sport.

Another reason to become a coach is to help children succeed. If you benefited from youth sports, you may want to help other children benefit as well. You can teach children the importance of fitness, athletics, and good sportsmanship.

A third reason to coach youth sports is to have some fun. Getting involved in local events and coaching children can be a great way to unwind and have fun. Mr. Craig Markham loved playing sports while he was growing up. He continues to stay active and volunteers as a youth judo coach in Ontario. Craig Markham cares about his community and giving back to others.
