"I had the pleasure of being coached by and of being a good friend of Gary Kinder. The principles and knowledge that I learned from Gary are still the backbone of the program here at Airforce. Anybody that is serious about track and field should seek out coach Kinder. His knowledge, love, and enthusiasm for the sport are unmatched and absolutely priceless."

"Gary Kinder is a key partner with us in the raising of our kids. He upholds the highest standards and expectations, and backs it up with the tools, teaching and resources for our children to be successful. Since we started working with Kindersport, we have seen a noticeable improvement in grades, character decisions, and of course athletic performance. He has taken our oldest from a 6th grade beginner to Regional, State, National and now International Champion in high school and aided in his transition into a scholarship athlete at the University of Texas. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Gary as he coaches our youngest son as well."

"Gary started my daughter, Morgan, on track to becoming a Division 1 hurdler at the University of California. He immediately recognized her strengths and determined where she would excel. He inspired her to take track and field seriously, and the hurdles have taken her all the way to collegiate success. I will forever be thankful for the coaching Gary gave Morgan during her early years of training."
