Club Director/Club Owner /Head Coach/ Development Coach Varsity & JV Assistant at Decatur Central High School
I have been coaching volleyball for 20+ years now it started with a phone call from my old high school coach. I love coaching volleyball because it gives me a chance to TEACH the sport. That is a strange combination I know but think about it isn't coaching a lot like teaching we have a classroom filled with athlete's who want to learn how to perform on and off the court.
I started my career at Center Grove High school where I was a standout athlete in volleyball, basketball and track and after all these years volleyball is still my favorite sport. Continued my passion for volleyball through coaching at major university's such as Marian University (1999-2000) and University of Indianapolis (2000-2005) and clubs such as Circle City (10 years) , Indy Jrs ( 3 years) and IVA.(2 years).
If you don't make it fun for your participants they won't want to come back too learn. Make it interesting, always show them something new, demonstrate but yet let the athlete perform it that is the only way they will learn the sport. Hands on training is what I was always taught and still teach it to this day stay competitive yet make it fun.
Never underestimate fun - never; because after all laughter is the best medicine (NUF).
