Craig Roderick revels in the pleasure of serving over 20 years in a career of athletics administration, Athletic Training, education, and business leadership as the Site Director, and Instructor for USPA in Exeter, New Hampshire.
Growing up in the Greater Boston area, his engagement in ice hockey and every outdoor activity available instilled a lifelong pursuit of sports, and ultimately led to a Bachelor’s in Science from Salem State University in Athletic Training.
He began his career working for the New England Patriots in providing athletic training services, physical rehabilitation, athlete health management, practice and game day logistics, and traveled extensively, including internationally, for the NFL’s Mexico Bowl in support of the organization.
Securing a graduate assistant-ship from Southern New Hampshire University, Craig continued his career as an Athletic Trainer, Strength and Conditioning Coach, and Manager of Fitness Operations, while pursuing a Master’s Degree in Business (MBA), and Master’s Degree in Business Education (MS). Post Graduation, Craig secured a position with Endicott College as one of their first Football Athletic Trainers, while serving as their Assistant Director of their 84,000 square foot athletic facility and adjacent fields.
For close to a decade, Craig’s role at Endicott was elevated to Assistant Athletic Director where he managed athletic budgets, coaches and supporting staff members, educational and athletic facilities, created or participated in various fundraising campaigns, directed project management for major facility and field construction at an institutional level, developed and coached several club sports at the collegiate level including women’s ice hockey, men’s and women’s crew, outdoor adventure, and sailing, and co-created a recreational lacrosse league with over 650 members for youth and high school boy’s, and girl’s.
Craig continues to coach boy’s lacrosse from youth to high school ages while volunteering in his community of York, Maine, and spends free time with his wife Breanne, teaching his two boy’s the finer points of a life spent in pursuit of lifelong learning.
