Coach Derek Locklear

Coach Derek is more than a sports coach, he's also a life coach. His insightful and enthusiastic personality motivates children to learn about teamwork, sportsmanship, determination and self-esteem. Coach Derek inspires children to look within themselves.

"I coach to teach something that goes beyond simply winning. I feel that if a child has a dream to get to the next level in his or her sport, then I want to play a part in helping them see that dream come true. Most of all, I believe that there are important principles to be learned from winning and losing."
- Coach Derek Locklear

As owner of Coach Derek Inc., Derek founded Let's Give Them a Shot with the vision of creating a program that would serve underprivileged children in at-risk neighborhoods in the Los Angeles area.
