This will be Joe's fourth season with Northwest Juniors; but he has been around volleyball all his life. He is one of the top rated beach players in the Northwest and also was the Director of Instruction for the NW Beach club program in 2018. He currently coaches at Bellevue High School and has worked hard to become as strong a coach for the indoor game as he is for the outdoor game. His roots may be on the beach, but his overall knowledge of the game, his experience, and his passion for teaching give him the tools to be successful in all disciplines.
"Players will do what they’re told by a coach but they will only truly follow someone whom they believe in and who believes in them. Coaching is all about relationships. It doesn’t happen on chalkboards, with titles, or in newspaper articles. Transformational coaching occurs only when people believe in you and choose to follow because they know that you believe in them, too." -InsideOut Coaching
Who are we, if not measured by our impact on others? That’s who we are! We’re not who we say we are, we’re not who we want to be – we are the sum of the influence and impact that we have, in our lives, on others. - Carl Sagan
