A message from Coach Patti:
EVJ is family for me!  As an alumna of the program, I owe much of my volleyball success to Jen Leo and EVJ, not only as a player during high school and college, but as a coach.  I have had the pleasure of coaching for EVJ for over 16 years now; however I have always said that when I stop learning and growing as a coach, it is then time for me to stop coaching.  

I enjoy developing our "Futures" girls on the fundamentals of volleyball, helping them learn the rules of the game and working hard to be competitive! It is awesome to work with the high school age kids and see these great athletes compete at a high level while working toward a collegiate volleyball scholarship! My passion for the game comes through at practice and during competitive play for I bring a lot of energy to the teams I work with.

It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up."
