“When opportunity comes, it’s too late to prepare” – John Wooden
Lance’s EPIC opportunity is born out of 20 plus years as a respected coach, instructor and administrator in the youth sports industry. Born in Harlem and raised in Brooklyn, Lance has participated in sports since the age of 7 and has not stopped since. Like any other kid, Lance honed his skills on the basketball courts and baseball fields of NYC. Lance was fortunate enough to play high school and junior college baseball, culminating with playing two years at the professional level. His passion for teaching was born when his son Lance II, started playing basketball and baseball at the age of 6. The volunteer dad became a coach, the coach became a director and since, Lance has experienced all facets the youth sports industry has to offer.
Lance believes the team at EPIC is passionate and resolute in its vision for quality sports programming and instruction for young athletes throughout New York City and will be at the forefront of the experience.
“Each stop has groomed me for the next one and all have led me to EPIC. The next logical progression is to be at this place, at this time. I am grateful for those I have worked for and those I have worked with. I have been blessed to learn this business from some of the best but more importantly, it is the life lessons that have shaped who I am and it is because of youth sports.” – Lance Williams
