CJV Coaches

Meet Our Coaches

Carolina Juniors Volleyball Club employs hundreds of coaches each year. Many of our directors and coaches have been working with the CJV Club since it began in 1995. Most of our coaches are current local High School and College coaches, former College and club players and other dedicated individuals that have a love for volleyball and teaching young people.

CJV Is Proud Of All Of Our Current and Past Players And Coaches.
Over 70% of all players and coaches at clubs in the Charlotte area, started or furthered their coaching and playing careers by playing, coaching or through some other contact or relationship with CJV!  With CJV’s numerous levels of programs, from Lil Spikers all the way to the Elite Level, we are able to train all ages and skill levels of players. In addition to teaching and training over 3500 players each year, CJV also allows coaches an opportunity to advance their coaching careers at CJV by working with the some of the best volleyball coaches and players in the nation. This includes bringing in college coaches Gold Medal Squared coaches for camps and clinics, and offering coaching tools such as Art Of Coaching and GMS+. We are proud to be able to train and mentor new and less experienced coaches interested in learning to coach volleyball, not just for our club, but also to improve the quality and level of coaching at all the local schools and other volleyball clubs in the area. We understand coaches and players have many opportunities to coach and play volleyball, and are glad CJV is, or has been, part of their volleyball careers and hope they will continue to play, coach and give back to the great sport of volleyball wherever they are
