About Jackson

Coach and Athlete

Coach Jackson has over a decade of experience coaching and working with kids. His philosophy is that exploration and play through games and physical activities is one of the most basic and powerful ways to learn.

He's worked closely with children as an elementary Physical Education teacer; after school sports and programming (football, chess, wrestling, soccer, and general games); coaching extracurriculars like soccer and tee-ball; and early on in his career in a daycare setting. Many Bay Area kids have some of their first sports experiences with Coach Jackson, and his goal is to always bring the same appreciation for form and technique, enthusiasm for the game, working together while having fun to every learner!

Jackson is vaccinated against COVID-19.
