Jose is in his second year with NW Juniors and comes to us from Southern California by way of Spain. As a former Spanish National team and Professional player, he was in the National team pipeline starting at age 15 and spent 12 seasons studying and playing volleyball.
In California, he served as an assistant coach primarily helping with quality control, scouting, recruiting, position specialty, and on-court teaching. As a long time National Team player, he has developed qualities that serve athletes well in competition. His strength is in passing that knowledge and experience onto his teams and he will do the same with a few of our teams here at NW Juniors. He will serve as assistant to our 16 and 18 National Teams in the Northend.
In Southern California, he coached at Mavericks Volleyball Club (Girls), San Gabriel Elite VBC (Girl's and Boys), and Beach Cities VBC (Boys) and worked summer camps. He brings experience also helping players to prepare physically and mentally for high-level play. He is IMPACT and CAP Certified through the USA Volleyball Coaching Accreditation Program.
He is married and has a two young kids at home. We are excited to have Jose (and his family) in our club.
