Additional costs with respect to travel tournaments are to be expected. The team will keep a detailed seasonal budget and parents will be well-informed on payment schedules and fundraising expectations/opportunities.

Athletes are also encouraged to seek corporate sponsorship (letters can be provided). The 18u team will also look to secure a corporate partner to help costs during the 2022-2023 season.

A proud graduate of the École Sainte-Anne volleyball program, I have been coaching volleyball for close to 15 years, including the past 9 years with the Tommies/Spartans. I have also coached ESA men’s and women’s varsity programs to numerous NBIAA championship banners over the years. I am an NCCP  - Performance Coach (in training), a two-time VNB Coach of the Year (2006, 2014) and the 2019 recipient of the Ian Fowler VNB Volunteer of the Year award. I am also the former High Performance Chair for Volleyball New Brunswick and head coach at various age categories for the VNB summer elite program. I am currently the Spartans Volleyball Club Vice-President.

 

After university degrees in Science (honours in Kinesiology) from UNB and Law from Alberta, I am currently a Senior Policy Advisor with the Executive Council Office (GNB). My hobbies include live rock music, especially following my favourite group Radiohead, reading literary fiction, and tweeting about the highs and lows of my two teams: Liverpool Football Club and the Montreal Canadiens.
