A message from Coach Ray:

Volleyball is my passion and coaching allows me to share my passion with numerous individuals. There are few things in life that I enjoy more than coaching volleyball. To be successful, you must understand the game that you are playing. During our time working together, you will learn both the "how" and "why" of volleyball, while learning life skills in a competitive atmosphere. The skills learned on the volleyball court will carry you to success far beyond your playing career. 

Education has always been a top priority. Through attending the AVCA convention, getting CAP certified and using unlimited resources, I strive to ensure players receive quality and knowledgeable coaching. I am looking forward to begin working with EVJ's athletes and continuing to grow the game.
