About Coach T
I am Antwaun Thompson or Coach T, and I am the founder and executive Director of JLT Fieldhouse, a 501c3 nonprofit youth coaching and mentoring organization, dedicated to “Coaching and Mentoring the Leaders of Tomorrow”. For over 30 years, I have coached and mentored young men and women, helping to improve their athletic skills, confidence , resiliency and focus. Nothing brings him more satisfaction than seeing the heart, determination and commitment from these young people.
While working with these young people, I realized that there were other areas that I was able to help them with, to ensure their path to success is even smoother. Make no mistake about it, young people face many obstacles today and there is only so much teachers and parents can do. Young people need to know that there are other supportive outlets that they can turn to for education, motivation, and support.
This is why I have started Coach T’s Corner™, and online mentoring academy that educates, motivates and supports our future leaders of tomorrow. I have put together courses and multi week mentoring programs that cover topics such as ; responsibility, accountability, goal setting, safe social media practices, communication, conflict resolution, bullying and more.
UCLA legendary Coach John Wooden said it best “A good Coach can change a game; a great coach can change a life”.
