Jeff Bader

Head Coach

A message from Coach Bader:
Whether playing, coaching, club directing, officiating or just watching and supporting my three children, who are all extensively involved with the sport, I have been involved with volleyball for over 35 years. I have dedicated my life to volleyball because for me it is the most exciting and fun sport to participate in.  More so than ever, this growing sport provides so many future avenues and opportunities for our youth to play in college and advance their education.  I am excited to return for my fifth year at EVJ and I look forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with my 15N2 team this upcoming club season.
