Director of Girls Indoor Recruiting
Kevin Hodge has been with the WAVE Family since 2015. He has been coaching since 2003 at both the college and the club levels. Kevin is considered as one of the top coaches in the region and has coached many athletes that have moved onto the highest level of our sport. Technique and process are his focus in the gym, whether it is a practice or individual training session. Positivity and problem solving are a large part of his teaching and training method.
Kevin attended and competed for Penn State University (1998-2002) at the Division I level. During his time there he was named to the EIVA All-Tournament Team (2001) and helped guide his team to four consecutive NCAA Final Four appearances. Upon finishing his eligibility, Kevin joined the Women's Volleyball Program at Penn State as a Volunteer Assistant Coach (2003-2005) to learn from one of volleyball's legendary coaches, Russ Rose. During his three seasons with the Nittany Lions the team won three Big Ten Conference Titles (2003, 2004, 2005). From there Kevin went on to become an assistant coach for the Women's Volleyball Team at the University of Cincinnati (2006).
While in Cincinnati Kevin also coached club volleyball at Team Z (2007-2008), guiding his team to a 3rd place finish at the inaugural JVDA Tournament. He then moved out to Southern California, where he has continued his career as a club coach and as an assistant director. In 2019, Kevin was named the 17s National Club Coach of the Year.
Kevin believes that a strong team dynamic and connection with the athletes is crucial in the success of the program. He works with our club's recruitable athletes to guide them to a collegiate home. "Supporting my athletes throughout their volleyball and life experience is what brings me joy."
Kevin has 2 sons - Davis and Keller. Davis played volleyball at UCLA and Keller has entered the 6th grade and is at WAVE all the time!
