Why I love coaching: There is nothing like teaching players to be part of something bigger than themselves, and being a part of the light bulb of when an athlete suddenly gets it. The game of volleyball can give you so much, it you have the courage to jump on board, and become a part of the team. I am grateful for what the game has given me, and hope to continue giving back to today’s up and coming players to help them become their very BEST.
