why we started

After more than seven years of private and group sports coaching for thousands of children through their first company, DubeZone, founders Rachel and Michael Dube and Rebecca Jesin saw a distinct need for a program that would not just address children’s physical development through sports coaching, but also focus on the whole child through social and emotional skill building. This method of combining the two into a unified experience is integral to the success and development of a well-rounded child. Elite Method is the answer for parents struggling to find solutions, looking for the right balance of school activities, traditional therapies, and family support. Elite Method is making it simple and easy by bringing the combination of life coaching and sports coaching into one program.

Rachel Dube

Rachel Dube, co-founder and CEO of Elite Method, has more than seven years of experience working in the child-development market through her first business, Dubezone, which provides sports coaching and programming for kids. Her experience of intimately working with thousands of children and families has been the inspiration to create Elite Method. Rachel saw the need for more intensive and customized programming that focused on the "whole" child, including physical, social, and emotional needs. Rachel brings her many years of career experience in business development, marketing, and programming to the development of Elite Method. She is also very involved in her community having served as the Jewish Community Liaison to Englewood Hospital for more than five years. She is the mother to two wonderful children ages 11 and 14 and is the wife of co-founder Michael Dube.

Michael Dube

Michael Dube, co-founder and President of Elite Method, has an incredible passion for working with kids and teaching them the skills needed to be successful in life. He stresses character building as much as strength and skill building. Michael is also co-founder of DubeZone, where he served as the inspiration and master trainer to a large coaching staff. Michael is considered an expert coach for his unique ability to connect with and transform every child with whom he works. His energy and enthusiasm is infectious, and he spreads his positive message through volunteerism, motivational speaking, and the charity he co-founded, Sharing Seats, which has given away thousands of event and sporting tickets to children in need. "Coach Mike," as he is affectionately called, is an inspiration to many and is very much looking forward to continuing his passion in helping kids through the development of Elite Method.
