This is the 2nd year that Maine Juniors has fielded a boy’s team to compete in NERVA’s. I very much look forward to watching the boy’s team as they play a part in introducing boy’s volleyball to Maine. The goal remains the same for these relatively new players: play hard, practice hard, improve every day, support each other and have fun doing it.
Why I Love Coaching:
I love coaching because I have the opportunity to watch players discover why volleyball is such a great sport to play through their hard work, skills progression, and the confidence that follows their improvement. None of this happens without developing team chemistry and friendships that, in many cases, will last a lifetime. Being a part of this is special, to say the least, and something that I never take for granted.
My Day Job:
I run a computer lab at Deering High School where I instruct all levels in Adobe Photoshop, Google, Coding, Design, and Personal Finance. I am involved in volleyball year-round between clinics, Maine Juniors, and Falmouth High School.
