About the Coach


Coach Dinkler has been at Foothill Technology for the last 14 years, teaching tenth and twelfth grade English and coaching both cross country and track. He brings an extensive cross-training background to the program, having competed in swimming and water polo in high school and college and then competing in marathons and triathlons after graduation. He continues to stay active in the running community by racing throughout Southern California. He has coached both youth and high school level athletics.


Track & Field is an ideal sport for any athlete looking to excel in athletic competition. Many of our athletes compete in multiple sports and learn how to increase their speed and improve their agility during the track and field season. Athletes are encouraged to fit their level of talent and their natural ability to the events that will benefit the team’s goals and their individual goals.
