Dublin Sandlot Camp Founder & Director - Matthew Hawley
I am the Orchestra Director and Head Cross Country Coach at Karrer Middle School, in the Dublin City Schools. I am also a United States Track and Field Association Level 1 Certified Coach. I have been coaching and teaching for 25 years and have an MA in Administration from The Ohio State University. I have a distinct passion for music and all things running, but I particularly enjoy watching the impact that excellence in music and sport can bring to a young person's life! This is my eleventh year directing Sandlot and it is one of the highlights of my year! In my free time I can be found spending time watching the Buckeyes, riding our horse Jack, and traveling to National Parks with my wife and two daughters.
Dublin Sandlot Camp Assistant Director - Chad Niezgoda
I have been employed with Dublin City Schools for over 10 years and have been coaching with the Sandlot Sports Camp of Dublin for 9 seasons. As a coach I want all children to be successful and strive to build self-esteem while encouraging children to push themselves to be their best. My goal is to ensure ALL have FUN! I have coached baseball, softball, wrestling, and track. When not at work, I can be found enjoying quality time with my wife and three daughters at our home in Delaware or out camping, swimming, hiking, and traveling.
