Danie’s  “why” for joining the LV Grizzlies family: “I am a huge yellow personality (meaning I love helping when someone asks me for help). I also absolutely love children and I have always wanted a way to give back to the children in the community, help them create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime,  and Grizzlies just felt right.  I coached for the Grizzlies 2 years ago and enjoyed every minute of it. There is just something about the Grizzlies that really makes me honored to be apart of it. This organization has been there for my family so much, so when I was asked to be on the board it was honestly a no brainer for me.  I cannot wait for many more seasons being apart of this great organization.”

Maria Watson

Fundraising Director

Board member since: December 2018 Maria is recently retired after 12 years in the U.S. Air Force. She has two wonderful children. Maria's "why" for joing the Grizzlies Board: When my family moved to LV in early 2018 my son wanted to play a sport. He was recently diagnosed with Autism, ADHD and SPD. I was very concerned about what sport and how he would be coached. I met the former President one day and discussed my concerns and he assured me all would be great. AND IT WAS! The coaches are so patient and helpful to him! My daughter has always wanted to cheer and this was a perfect opportunity to get her started. The Cheer Director and Assistant were so welcomig of her. I ended up coaching our first season with the Grizzlies. The way the all made me and my kids feel welcome was amazing. I love working with the kids and making a difference in young lives. This is the perfect way to do that! I cannot wait to see all of these kids grow!

She enjoys going out to the dirt tracks with her fiancé to watch him race, she loves spending time with her family,  and likes to help organize or plan events/parties.  Tiffany’s  “why” for joining the LV Grizzlies family:  “ I have a huge spot in my heart for Grizzlies. I cheered for them for most of my childhood, I have so many memories on that field, going to competition, making friends, and had so many amazing coaches.  I love children and I want to be able to be apart of the kids now creating the same amazing memories I have with Grizzlies.  I was able to coach cheer 2 seasons ago with this organization and knew that being with the kids was my calling, so when I was asked by Danie to come on the board I was so excited to be able to come back. The Grizzlies are an amazing organization, I’m so happy to be apart of it again.  I’m here to put the kids first in everything I do and can’t wait for an amazing season”

Patrick Martinez

Assistant Maintenance Director

Patrick works full time for the oilfield, he has two children Dakota and Hunter, he was raised in Stockdale Texas and graduated from Stockdale ISD in 2006,  he has now been a resident of La Vernia for 7 years, and has enjoyed being apart of the community.  Patrick is a big family man and spends all his time with them, but enjoys being able to go outside and work on his yard when he gets time to himself.  
Patricks “why” for joining the LV Grizzlies family: 
“My children have been apart of this organization and have grown so much in it.  I figured it was time for me to give back somehow to something that has impacted my children in such a positive way.  When I found out they were looking for another field maintenance director I knew that position was for me, I love to go outside and work with my hands as much as I can.  I am really big on keeping up with something, these kids deserve a great field to play ball and cheer on, and isn’t that why you join an organization like this for the kids?  I will do almost anything for a child to have something great, so Grizzlies was the perfect place to be able to give that.”

Justin Armstrong

Baseball Director

Has been involved in coaching his kids since they started playing sports. He has a passion for coaching baseball and softball. Last year he coached our boys 12U team for the Grizzlies and helped out with his daughters 14U softball team as well as his youngest son's T-Ball team. I think we can all agree Justin has the passion, experience, skills and desire it takes to fill this position.
 
Justin's why for joining the Grizzlies:
We have played baseball and softball with CYO and LVLL in years past. Last year we decided to give the Grizzlies a try. My experience with them gave me a desire to see this organization take off and grow to be another option for the kids in our community and surrounding areas. I look forward to serving on the board and hope to grow the baseball/softball aspect of the organization.
