Hello, I am Coach Herb Sparks and I will be the Head Coach for the Canton Girls Track and Field team. I am also the Head Coach for the Canton Girls Cross Country team as well. I have been an assistant coach for the track team since the 2014 season. I look forward to building onto the solid foundation that has been established over the past seasons. My coaching philosophy centers around getting athletes to believe and understand that they are all capable of more than they think. I am a USATF certified coach and have been coaching youth and high school running for almost 13 years. I am an avid runner who runs all year around. I also compete in local races throughout Michigan. I truly believe that running is a lifestyle that must be fully embraced in order to be as successful as you want.
