Coaching Staff

"The best teachers are also the best students --  as the program director of this club, I'm always looking for ways to improve my own skills as well as those of my coaches, so with that in mind, I meet with them at the start of every season for training to bring them up to date on the latest most innovative forms of training that our profession has to offer.   With 25 years in this business, I want to take what's best from the tried and true methods, but also keep learning as new information and training techniques keeps us fresh and motivated."

~Tony Miranda


2019 Coaching Staff

NW Juniors Elite Volleyball Club is proud to announce it has assembled one of the best coaching staffs ever for the upcoming season! This staff includes collegiate coaches and collegiate players, several local respected  high school coaches, and multiple former NWJRS players who competed for us, went on to play collegiately and now are back.  As a group, we have some of the top volleyball minds on staff!

Our entire staff is IMPACT and Safe Sport certified and our coaches annually attend the NW Juniors Elite Coaches Clinic led by club Director, Tony Miranda. Several coaches have their CAP certification; high school coaches have their CPR certification and regularly attend WIAA Coaching Clinics. Our experienced staff guides our new coaches to ensure that all of our coaches find success.

All of our coaches share a love of the game of volleyball, and a love and passion for NW Juniors Elite and all the players that pass through our doors. Several coaches compete indoors and on the beach -- our coaches have a passion for the game of volleyball and that passion shows when they coach our athletes. We could not be more excited about the upcoming season and the staff that you will all get to know.
