Kevin started up coaching at WAVE in 2022! Prior to coaching a team, he coaches our Boys Miniseason program (2012).
Coaching Philosophy: Kevin's coaching philosophy consists of developing great fundamental skills along with impeccable character, while cultivating a love for the sport in the process. He believes it is important to show up as a respectful human being on and off the court. He hopes to develop a passion for the game and hard work on the court. Kevin believes the discipline required to develop a strong work ethic on the court translates to a great work ethic off the court. As far as technical skills on the court go, he believes in creating well rounded athletes. Kevin wants his players to be multifaceted volleyball athletes. The goal is that players will have all the tools necessary to be well versed in all the fundamental skills and will have the opportunity to naturally specialize to a position as they grow and mature.
Playing history includes 4 years at La Costa Canyon, where he won a CIF championship. He also played 4 years at WAVE where he attended 3 USAV Nationals , twice in the open division. Kevin went on to be a founding member of the club volleyball team at CSUSM and played there for a few years.
When he's not coaching volleyball he enjoys surfing and playing beach volleyball. Some of his favorite waves are D St. and Grandview. He loves moonlight beach and the volleyball community down there. He has also had the privilege of seeing some of the players he's coached go on to great schools to pursue volleyball and academics. But his favorite thing is running into a former player and seeing the great person they have grown into.
