Craig Brooker is a neurologist, university professor, athlete, coach, and father-of-5, who firmly believes focusing kids on academics and athletics optimizes their ability to live up to their potential. He started After School Athlete as a way to promote children's futures in a structured after-school-environment that promotes health, fights obesity, keeps kids off the street, and engages minds.  His wife, Emily, is a talented middle school math and science teacher of endless inspiration who previously stayed home with our kids because our local schools didn't have after school programs.  Accordingly, Craig made the first After School Athlete program at his kids' elementary school where they participate.  Here's to improving the system and supporting women in the workplace while optimizing our children's academic and athletic potential.  From our family to yours.
