Dan Erickson enters his third season as the Head Coach of the Men's & Women's Tennis program at Cornerstone University.  After starting the program in the 2011-2012 season, both teams showed improvement in the 2013 campaign.  The Men's team went from 2 wins in 11/12 to 9 wins in 12/13.  The Women's team went from 1 to 2 wins in that same span.  Coach Erickson is hoping that both teams can continue their improvement this upcoming season.  More importantly, Coach Erickson hopes that he can use tennis as a means of helping his players grow closer in their relationship with Jesus Christ.

Coach Erickson played four seasons of tennis at Bethel College (Mishawaka, IN), where he played anywhere from #2-6 singles and all 3 doubles positions. During that time, Dan began working at the South Bend Racquet Club and the Leeper Park Tennis Center and developed a love for teaching tennis, the tennis industry, and growing the game in the community. He also coached high school tennis in South Bend, IN. After college, Dan moved to Lexington, KY, where he took the job as General Manager of the Kentucky Tennis Academy (KTA). After several years, Dan transitioned to the Lexington Tennis Club, one of the largest indoor tennis clubs in the country, where he then also served as General Manager. Dan also helped start Champions Sports, a 40,000 square foot indoor baseball & softball training center, as well as start The Kentucky Baseball Club, for which he served as Treasurer. After 10 years in Kentucky, Dan has returned to the Midwest and now serves as Cornerstone's Head Tennis Coach. Dan remains an active tennis player and says that little relaxes him more than hitting tennis balls. Dan is certified at the Professional Level by the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), and holds the USTA Sports Science Level 1 Certification.

Dan and his wife Nancy live with their two children, Sophie and Paul.
