Rick Truman

13U Ambassador Lead Travel Coach

Years Coaching Atown: 5

Years Coaching: 5 for volleyball, 10+ sports

Home: Canton, OH

Coaching Experience & Statement:

Richard “Rick” Truman
I am from Canton, Ohio and I have lived in the Anderson area for 26 years. I have
been married for 21 years and have two daughters. The oldest is currently the
Assistant Coach at Anderson Christian School and has played with A-Town for 4
years. The youngest will play her 3 rd year of volleyball with A-Town this year.
I have coached in the recreation league for 6 years and this will be my 3rd year at
A-Town. Over the past 8 years I have coached volleyball, basketball, and softball
for the Starr Athletic Association and I am currently the Varsity Volleyball Head
Coach at Anderson Christian School. Being involved at these two levels has
allowed me to watch many players grow. It has taught me how to interact with
each player to get the best out of them. I tell all my players that practice never
ends. Practice is about what an individual is willing to do to improve when no one
else is around. The time a player puts in outside of practice is just as important as
the time spent at regular practice, for this is what will set you apart from other players
