Why I Coach?

I have been a part of volleyball in one way or another for 12 years now.  I love the game and want to share my passion for it with young people just as my coach did for me when I began.  I also enjoy working with kids in athletics because I believe that it gives kids leadership skills that they will needed to succeed later in life.  I have truly enjoyed the experiences that volleyball has given me and I want share it with my players.
