Assistant Coach
Girls 14N1-Tempe

A message from Coach Marisa:
I look forward to coaching my 5th season with EVJ. Volleyball paid for my education at The University of Arizona by earning a full ride scholarship. Volleyball has taught me life long lessons, discipline, teamwork, sacrifice, how to win, how to lose, sportsmanship, building relationships/friendships, and it has been an invaluable experience that has opened so many doors. I am so excited to have the opportunity to share my passion of volleyball with young girls and help them thrive on and off the court.
