Head Coach David Ho
Director and Assistant Coach Mindi Chen
Mindi is a volleyball aficionado who has played volleyball since elementary school. She grew up in Southern California, playing in middle school through to her high school team. At UCLA, she played intramurals and organized many beach and grass volleyball tournaments. After graduation she continued to play in the Westside volleyball league and tournaments, traveling annually to Las Vegas for their fun-filled volleyball tournaments.
Since getting married and moving to Northern California, her love affair with volleyball has continued, now further energized by her two teenage players. It was through volunteering at their schools, and while assistant coaching with the middle and high school teams, that she discovered some young players interested in continuing competitive volleyball have found the for-profit volleyball clubs and clinics cost prohibitive and too crowded to really learn effectively. Her passion for volleyball has spurred this volunteer effort to create a non-profit club volleyball team to serve their needs.
