Our Team

We are an ever-growing community of current and former: athlete's, coaches, gamers, performers, technologists, content creators, and the families who love them.

Our Motto: Learn, Play, Achieve


TecGym compliments the efforts of coaches and trainers to effectively teach fundamentals, technique, and strategy.  TecGym also provides hands-on learning opportunities for students and community members in videography, IT, marketing, and business.


TecGym supports the recreational and competitive drive of amateur athletes, skilled gamers, and performing artists.  We provide filming (and eventually training material / facilities) for players who want to celebrate their current activity and/or refine their game to prepare for higher level competition and performance.


Whatever an individual's goal might be: from better health and social connection to preparation for secondary, collegiate, Olympic, or even professionalism, TecGym is honored to serve.
