Head Coach - Don DeWitt
Don played multiple sports growing up including Soccer, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Swimming, and Track and Field.
Don started coaching in 2012 when he was in the Air Force. He started coaching intramural football and volleyball for 15 players, including scheduling, strategy, and team management.
Coaching an existing team evolved into founding a soccer team for his Air Force base that covered an indoor AND an outdoor team with multiple practices a week. The team ranged from 10 people for indoor only up to 45 when outdoor was being offered.
Don started coaching Track and Field in 2018 as the Head Varsity Coach and the Assistant Middle School Coach for Mead Hall in Aiken, SC. He very quickly found his calling in providing extremely dedicated and motivated sprinting and long jump training focused on the individual and their future goals.
Don's goals for Aiken Atomics is to:
Create a Track and Field culture in Aiken, SC
Create increased opportunity for local kids to go to College
Create a community-focused desire to run in Aiken, SC
