My Name: Bekah Mather
Team: 16 Blue
This will be my first year coaching volleyball. I have helped my High School in past year with kids camps and skill development.
I started playing volleyball in 6th grade because I decided basketball involved too much running on the court. little did I know that I would fall in love with the sport. I ended up joining a club team one year later. When I got to High School I played 1 year on JV and 3 years on varsity. I played club for Adidas NW for 5 years. While in High School I was awarded 2nd team all league, and best offensive player for 2 years. My first year of college I played for Oregon Tech. I decided to transfer to UNE my second year of college where I am currently playing.
I am very excited for this year! I know growing up on the west coast I learned differently but I can’t wait to share my knowledge of this sport. I hope to inspire the girls to be their best and to watch their love for the sport grow.
Why I Love Coaching:
I am new to coaching but one thing I loved seeing when I helped with kids camps, was the look on a girls face when she did something amazing. whether it was this huge kill or getting an overhand serve in the court for the first time. I love seeing their eyes light up and smiles on their faces.
My Day Job:
I am a full time student athlete for UNE. I am majoring in psychology with a minor in coaching.
I am from Welches Oregon. A very small town on the base of Mt. Hood.
Hmm, favorite food? I use to think it was lobster, my dad cooks the best lobster but now every time I get to go home, which is not that often, I find myself asking my mom to make me her stew. Its the perfect combination of meat and veggies in this deadly addicting broth. In all honesty I just love food a lot.
