DaRock Elite Performance was founded by Bermudian-born footballer Danté Leverock in 2020. Inspired by his own football career, Danté pursued educational and vocational certifications, including an Associates Degree in Sports Science, BSc in Sports Coaching and Fitness, Masters in Educational Leadership (in progress), WITSPersonal Trainer Certification, and EXOS Performance Specialist Certification (ongoing).
Danté is a Bermuda Youth National Team Coach and currently plays for the Bermuda Senior Men’s National Team. He played professional football for 8 years internationally. He has been mentored as a player by some of the best coaches locally and internationally, and has been dedicated enough to also learn coaching skills along the way.
As a coach, Danté is passionate about ensuring that not only do his players develop the technical skills but also the mental toughness, resolute mindfulness, and dedication to the sport required to truly succeed. He believes that sport can be a great unifier among people of varying backgrounds and particularly finds meaning in engaging with at-risk youth through the beautiful game. To him, football is not just passion, it is life, and he hopes to impart that kind of joy in the young people that he trains.
