A message from Coach Ed:
I have coached volleyball at EVJ for over 22 years. I coach, first, because I love the sport of volleyball. But more importantly, I coach because assisting each athlete to achieve her greatest potential is my way of honoring the many coaches that made an impact in my life. Finally, I coach at EVJ because there is no better club in the state. My philosophy of coaching is simple: Respect my players and their abilities, whether she is gifted athletically, has a great work ethic, or is simply seeing, for the first time, what competing in a team sport like volleyball is all about. I expect my players to work hard when they’re in the gym but also understand we play this sport because it’s fun.
