Our New Coach

BCR is excited to welcome a new coach to our programming, Tori Hunt. She’ll start out working with the Juniors this spring, and branch out from ┬áthere.

Here’s an introduction she wrote for us:

I’m Tori. I’m from Cheshire and attended Hoosac Valley High School. I participated in many sports growing up, but enjoyed softball the most.

I completed my undergrad education at RPI in Troy, NY, graduating in 2014 with a B.S. in Civil Engineering. I was also on the softball team at RPI–and now I’ve decided to make a career transition and am now pursuing a career in strength and conditioning.

My goal is to become a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and I envision myself working with division 3 college athletes. I’m enrolled at BCC in the physical fitness program, working on prerequisite classes to prepare for a masters program in strength and conditioning.

As I mentioned above, I’m also currently a strength and conditioning intern at BCC’s Paterson Field House. My coaching/leadership experience includes serving as captain of the softball team at RPI, mentoring/coaching fellow athletes in crossfit, and most recently working as an assistant coach for the Hoosac Valley varsity softball team.

I’m passionate about both helping athletes improve their performance in sport, as well as teaching, encouraging and building positive life style habits they can take with them beyond their competitive years. I’m excited for the opportunity to join the rowing community and learn what it’s all about, while sharing some of my experience to help athletes grow in new ways.

Welcome, Tori! We so pleased to have you with us, and we hope you come to love BCR as so many members of the club do.
