Sports and Athletics

South Valley Prep maintains a positive and successful sports program available to all students who are interested in participating. SVP staff and coaches work diligently to ensure that our school can provide sports opportunities for your child.

Gino Blea

P.E. & Health Teacher

My name is Gino Blea. I was born and raised in the South Valley in Albuquerque, NM. I have a seven year old daughter named Bailey. I received my bachelor's degree from Highlands University in secondary education with a concentration in Health Education and later an endorsement in Physical Education. I have been teaching these subjects for over 10 years with the majority having been with South Valley Prep. In addition, I’ve had the privilege of overseeing the Aztec sports program including coaching both the Track and Cross Country teams.

Aside from educating our youth in our community, my passions include spending time with my family, especially my daughter and trying to live life to the fullest.
