Coaching experience:  This will be Ken's 22nd year with PLVC.  He has a degree in Physical Education from WUSTL and has coached select softball as well as volleyball. His 2003 14U team finished 3rd in the Northeast Qualifier and qualified for nationals that year and also the next year as a 15U team.  His coaching philosophy is to develop each girl's individual skill level and to blend those skill sets into a cohesive team strategy while maintaining a positive and fun approach to the game; to create an atmosphere whereby the girls learn personal responsibility both on and off the court, to accept accountability for their play and interactions with teammates, and to understand the concepts of what being a team member requires.
