My coaching philosophy is simple:  If you are all in and coachable you will succeed; no politics, no favorites, no excuses.

I believe in asking athletes questions about what they are learning so they can start thinking for themselves on the court, and in turn develop a deeper understanding of volleyball. 

I am upfront with my athletes about expectations and roles, which helps the team grow competitively.

My experience playing and coaching competitively has given me extensive knowledge of the game.  I have coached players at all levels from 12u athletes to DI athletes.  My passion for volleyball is contagious and I expect my athletes to be relentless in all they do.
