James Johnson

Head Coach


A message from Coach James:
I am excited to coach with the EVJ family again this year! I was introduced to EVJ by Coach Sonia Jones and Coach Patti Schoenhardt, through my children, and both enjoyed and appreciated the experience EVJ provided my children. 

My coaching career started ten years ago when my oldest daughter wanted to play 5th grade volleyball. Ever since, I have been dedicated to learning the game of volleyball. My goal as a coach is to use the sport of volleyball as an avenue to build a strong foundation for youth confidence, resiliency, and work ethic. I look forward to continuing to improve as a coach and to work with the great families at EVJ.
