Director, Co-Owner of Atown Volleyball
Angela’s experience combined with her authentic love for the sport of volleyball provide a powerful motivator for her players and coaches.
Angela is truly passionate about playing and coaching volleyball. Her philosophy of addressing the whole athlete individually in order to set the team up for success is evident in the definite style of Atown coaching. She empowers her coaches and players to believe in themselves through building up self esteem. Angela’s distinct style is instilled into her coaches as they teach correct techniques, skills and strategy. Fun and family time are just as important to prevent player burnout. She believes in getting to know the players personally and travels to their school games. #Atownontheroad #Atownfam
