Safe. Smart. Easy.
The FloormarX® Story
Mitch’s first passions were teaching and coaching. He began teaching Physical Education at the elementary and middle school levels, and accepted the Boy’s Head Varsity Basketball position in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. at age 24. As Mitch continued on with his successful teaching and coaching career, he founded his school district’s first anti-bullying club long before state mandated programs, and earned three “Coach of the Year” awards in basketball. Throughout his over twenty years in education, the concerns of student and athlete safety persisted in his mind as he used cones, rubber bases, and floor tape.
In 2011 Mitch stepped away from his varsity coaching responsibilities to spend more time with his family, and focus on raising his son Hutton, and daughter Hadley. Soon after, he began to make his longtime vision a reality, with his first prototype of the FloormarX® system in 2014. It utilized a specially formulated ink and marking pen that allows P.E. teachers, coaches, dance instructors and many more to draw quick drying, bold, durable lines and court markings that are easy to remove. After three school years of testing, his vision was manifested into FloormarX®, an innovative safer, smarter, and easier way to instruct movement!
