Coaching Experience: After college I coached JV at Radnor and Archbishop Carroll High schools. I was an assistant at West Chester University and head coach of Drexel’s Men’s club team for five years. After that I was the assistant for the women’s program at Drexel. We started a “volley tots” program at our kids’ school and through the township. I’m presently the varsity girls’ coach as well as the boys’ assistant at Haverford High School. I also coach my daughter’s East Coast Power team as well as assisting with my son’s Club Lehigh Power team. I help coach the ECP beach training in the summer and have worked and run many camps and clinics.

Coaching Philosophy: Keep it fun and simple
