ASSISTANT COACH – 18U VORTEX
This is my first year coaching with Smash Raiders. I am excited to be an Assistant Coach with the U18 Vortex team.
I am a fully Certified Development Coach, and have been coaching volleyball on and off since I was 17 and have 10 years of Head Coaching experience in the OVA.
I played post-secondary volleyball for Niagara college for 3 seasons in different positions. I have recovered from multiple injuries incurred during playing, including 2 ACL tears, so as a coach I understand how important mental health and active recovery are for an athlete, especially after an injury.
My coaching philosophy comes down to 3 things:
- Serving and defence wins games
- Fundamentals are always important
- Discipline drives competitiveness
