Coach's Corner - 2nd Time Sports



Coach Chuck is an easy person to talk to. When you chat with him about sports and the value of the experience you can sense a feeling of caring. Chuck moved to Northglenn in 1966. Chuck is married with two children.

Chuck played youth football, baseball, basketball and soccer in Northglenn.

Chuck played high school sports at Northglenn high school, graduating in the class of 1978.

After high school, Chuck decided that he would still be involved with sports and started a lengthy coaching career. He coached youth football for 18 years in NYFA and TGFL. After that he coached High School Football for 2 years at Thornton High School.

Switching his coaching path Chuck started coaching baseball He coached 22 years of baseball for the Northern Lights and North Metro Little leagues. When he was asked to help the young ladies who are into sports he spent 3 years coaching youth girls fast pitch softball. Later he coached 3 years of basketball at the local YMCA.

During his tenure as a football coach he completed concussion training and has kept up the training yearly for the past 10 years for both youth and high school football.

He says “As a coach, player and parent, I know the importance of proper equipment and how it affects the game.”

“The past few years in sports, equipment has really changed and I pride myself in passing this knowledge to parents and players so they can make informed decisions on their sports equipment purchases.”

Asking him how this helps being in sporting goods sales he said: “Coaching Football and Baseball for so many years, I know how football equipment should fit and what is the right bat for a player.

“The personal service you get at 2nd Time sports is like no other in Colorado.  I fit each helmet and take the time to make sure it fits right and is comfortable on your players head.  We do the same for shoulder pads and pants.”

He also states: “I stock a select few lines of new sports equipment and know the equipment like the back of my hand. Other stores carry large amount of equipment but may not be able to tell you the difference between brands and models.”

“I can explain the difference in models and brands and features you get with each.  Most big box store do not have this kind of product expertise.”

I encourage you to come in and visit 2nd Time Sports and have a look at what they have to offer. Look around and then when you see Coach Chuck ask him for some recommendation!
