Lluri

Lluri Coria

Director of Athletics

Lluri will always be a club kid! As a former BGCDT member, 2003 Youth Of The Year, and Jr. Staff for three years, she knew BGCDT was still a place she could call home. Growing up in Carpentersville and seeing first hand the impact that club has on our community, is one of the reasons she decided it was time to come back and utilize the skills club provided her. As a volleyball player in Dundee-Crown, she believes athletics is a crucial component to many children’s success along with discipline. As the Athletics Director, she is looking forward to providing more opportunities for our youth to use their skills without limitations. With a background in customer services and athletics operations, she is hopeful she can help our local families and members find a fun way to stay active and be part of a team. Lluri is also a proud mom to a boy that is now a 2nd generation BGCDT member. The Club has been such a fantastic part of her life and now being able to be on the other side of the spectrum she couldn’t ask for a better team to work side by side on this incredible mission in making a great community with young leaders.
