Since 3rd grade Stephanie Dacey had only been in love with one sport…basketball. She was an all-state high school player and four year letter winner at the University of Wisconsin. After graduation, Stephanie went on to be an assistant women’s basketball coach for Furman University and Saint Louis University.
Stephanie had been part of teams since she was 10 years old and after “retiring” (young age of 29) from college coaching in 2011 she quickly realized there was no “team” to be found. However, friends from Florida who she always talked basketball with started talking about CrossFit. After doing a CrossFit workout for the first time in June of 2011, she immediately fell in love with the energy, attitude, and community that CrossFit embodies. Stephanie found a new team and a new sport to love!
“Relationships are an integral part of my life and I’m so blessed with the relationships that I’ve made since joining CrossFit STL. I love CrossFit and I am very grateful for the opportunity to be part of a team again.” – Steph
As a trainer, Stephanie is the youth and high school program director and also coaches’ adult WOD and On Ramp classes.
Stephanie graduated from Wisconsin in 2005 with a degree in communication. She is a full time real estate agent for STL Real Estate and surprisingly, she found her way back to the basketball court as an assistant girls coach at Cor Jesu Academy.
