Who We Are
Kids Elite Sports, Inc. is a youth development organization that aspires to foster character and self-awareness through an emphasis on athletics. We strive to develop well-rounded individuals who will learn and enhance critical motor and athletic skills as well as build character, determination, perseverance, and collaboration in a nurturing environment.

mission_WhoWeAreOur founder, Coach Desmond Dunham (a.k.a “Coach D”), who currently teaches physical education at Woodrow Wilson Senior High School, takes pride in his 30 plus years as a student-athlete and coach.  Dunham, who was recently nationally recognized and named as a “2014 Brooks Inspiring Coach,” not only competed as a Division I athlete in college, but has also prepared many student-athletes to have a future in recreational and competitive sports which includes over 100 All-Americans from club, high school, and collegiate level sports programs.  Coach Dunham’s expertise in exercise physiology and postgraduate studies in Nutritional Science have enabled him to cultivate a proven scientific approach essential to developing fine motor skills in young athletes.  More importantly, Coach Dunham is noted for his art of working with kids in a friendly, safe and fun environment, which he has honed with a Master’s degree in Education and nearly fifteen years teaching K-12.
