Overall, Coach Harden has been teaching/coaching for 12 years. I coach to influence athletes with a futuristic mindset. I want to impact their thought processes with the hope of making them the most successful individuals they can be and someone who will be self-confident for the rest of their lives. My wife (Kristy) and I have been married for 11 years, we have three boys Carter (7), Caleb (4), and Cannon (1). We enjoy playing all sports, hunting, camping, and being in the outdoors.
