MEET COACH "D"ANYELE
Danyele (WIN)ston is a mother of two, cheer/dance coach, fitness trainer, CPR/First Aid Instructor, and founder of Win Athletics. She launched Win Athletic’s summer camp, Camp Win in 2019 as an idea to address the need for an affordable and enriching summer program that is exclusively centered around sports, academics and the arts. Danyele most notably received her certification in Youth Mental Health First Aid. Having grown up an athlete, she knows firsthand that participation in sports can help build self-esteem and social skills, motivate children to excel academically and encourage discipline over negative behaviors. With over 11 combined years of fitness training and coaching experience she has helped to train many people to integrate positive and healthy lifestyle changes.
Outside of motherhood, film production and business, her love for dance led her to becoming a NHL cheerleader as one of the first and starting members of the Atlanta Gladiators hockey team. Danyele has coached several Semi Pro and high school teams. She started in gymnastics and competitive cheer at a young age and is the cheer alum of Stephenson Middle school. She is currently serving as a Board Member and approaching her 7th year as Head Coach for the Central Dekalb Jaguar Jewels cheer team where her choreography has won the team dozens of 1st place and National Champion titles across the southeastern states.
From the Rose Bowl, Honda Battle of the Bands five times, to Atlanta Falcons and television appearances, she has done a lot in front of and behind the scenes off camera including wardrobe styling for both television and film. With a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising, she has worked for luxury fashion brands such as BCBG MAX Azria and Anne Fontaine where she styled many celebrity clients to include Tiki Sumpter(The Have & Have Nots), Krystal Fox(The Have & Have Nots), Tiny Harris, Joseline Hernandez and Mimi Faust (Love & Hip Hop Atlanta) to name a few.

Danyele has always endeavored to inspire, develop and mentor the youth to cultivate life skills that will aid them in becoming empathetic, respected and positive leaders of others in their school and community. She believes the key is not the will to win because everybody has that. It is the will to prepare to win that is important.
