Young Athletes Spotlight – Dino Bekteshi

Sidik (Dino) Bekteshi is an energetic 3-year-old from Bethany. Although Dino has only been in the Young Athletes Program a short time, he has already shown vast improvement. His favorite activity is throwing or anything that involves playing with any type of sports balls.

“He is corporative and determined,” says Mrs. Helms, Dino’s teacher. “He very much wants to do well and earn his sticker rewards. Since joining the program, I see Dino smiling a lot more. I’m excited in his progress he has had so far.”

When Dino isn’t practicing with the Young Athletes Program, he enjoys reading books, piecing together puzzles and, of course, playing outside. He also loves hanging out with his older sisters, Mia and Albina.

Dino’s mother, Shannon Curry-Bekteshi, says “This Smiling Dino is my first year seeing all of the children in the program. It has been an amazing experience for them. We are very happy to be a part of this school and program.”

We’re so excited to have such a great Young Athlete and family involved with the program and can’t wait to see what is in store for them!
