Jeff truly fell in love with the game of volleyball while taking a volleyball class in college led by instructor Calvin Williams. It was then when he realized that he wanted to seek out more opportunities to play and learn about this great sport.
Over the years, Jeff played often, from intramural leagues to pick-up, indoor 6’s to beach doubles. Rarely a week would go by without him being on a volleyball court. He’s even flown out to the beaches of Los Angeles just to seek out volleyball during the cold months of early spring in Cleveland.
Finally one day, a co-worker who knew of his passion for volleyball asked Jeff if he would be interested in coaching her daughter’s 7th grade team. He gladly accepted and quickly thereafter learned how rewarding it was to teach youth about the game that has brought so much added value to his life.
Coach Jeff also recently started coaching his 9 year old daughter’s team and hopes to introduce both of his children to the game he has learned to love and appreciate so much.
