Learn 2 Skate Day 8: Andy Davis

Andy "helps out" at Greg Carroll Learn 2 Skate

Once we had a coach that came to DinoMights to complete some hours for a college class. He loved it so much that he ended up coaching the PeeWees for nine years!

This year we have a college student, Andy Davis, that contacted DinoMights for some hours to complete his major at Hamline University. We talked about Andy "helping out" as a tutor and with Learn 2 Skate. "Helping Out" sounds like a small amount of work, but Andy has really done a lot.

He helped Eric organize all the equipment for Learn 2 Skate: he inventoried, he fixed helmet straps, and put those strips of tape for the kids names on all the skates. It is hard work, and he's done a great job.

Not only that, but he is also teaching a group of kids to skate each session. His group is called Andy's Amur Leopards.

He is becoming one of us and I wouldn't be surprised if he is still "helping out" in 2018!
