Varsity team at Davis High School. After graduating I returned home
to Pleasanton, where I coached at my old middle school. I coached the
6th, 7th, and 8th grade teams. I also started coaching under my
former high school coach at Foothill High School. I started with the
Freshman team and then moved on to coach the JV team and assist
Varsity. I have had several of my teams have winning seasons. Last

My name is June. My passion for volleyball started at a young age. Watching high school players
compete in tournaments inspired me to learn the game as a grade schooler.
Beholding the fun and camaraderie within the team, the spirited competition and
teamwork they built left me an indelible memory and I knew then that I wanted
to play volleyball. That desire came to fruition, playing volleyball in Highschool
and on through my college years while studying Chemistry. Not having grown to
more than ‘6 inches below 6 feet’ became a challenge, but I was not deterred. I
ended up taking defense and setter positions for my team. I continued playing in
leagues after college and have won a few championship awards. I am now a
parent and have seen middle schoolers play and compete with consternation.
Seeing what some of these kids can do, but unfortunately not instructed, drove
me to pursue coaching. That was 10 years ago. Watching kids grow and mature to
become good players felt very rewarding and made me want to stay and keep
coaching. I have coached middle school and high school level volleyball and club
volleyball ages 9 to 18. Some of the kids I’ve coached are now in college and what
a joy to know some of them have been recruited to play for their college teams.
