Our Coaches

The Selkirk Royals Volleyball Club is fortunate to have a dedicated team of volunteer coaches who bring a wealth of skills, knowledge and expertise to the court. These coaches are not only passionate about the sport, but they also possess a deep understanding of its technical aspects. They are committed to fostering a positive learning environment that promotes teamwork, sportsmanship, and personal growth in their athletes.

To maintain their coaching credentials, these volunteers participate in ongoing training and development programs. They stay up-to-date with the latest coaching techniques, strategies, and rule changes, ensuring that their players receive the best possible instruction. 

 

The Selkirk Royals volleyball program would not be the success it is today without the tireless efforts and exceptional skills of its volunteer coaches.
