Amber Day- Co- Director of Volleyball Operations (Head Director of U12-U14) 

Amber  has been in the volleyball world for over 25 years. She was a 4-year starter throughout high school and competed on the highest level comp teams throughout her youth. She was named Region Player of the Year and made 5A All-State her senior year. After graduating high school, she decided to end her playing career and turn her focus to coaching the younger generation. She began coaching at the age of 18, while earning her Teaching Degree at Arizona State University. She continued to coach at the comp level for 10 more years. She took a step back to raise her 4 kids for a few years, but as soon as her girls were old enough, she began coaching their teams as well. During those years, she also provided individual skills training.

Amber is passionate about this sport and loves to create that passion in young athletes. Volleyball is such an intense sport with so many great opportunities to teach young athletes life skills such as character, humility, team building, trust, effort, compassion, and many more. 

A couple of quotes to sum up her philosophy for a well rounded athlete:

"Always make a total effort, even when the odds are against you." ~ Arnold Palmer

"Be strong when you are weak, brave when you are scared, and humble when you are victorious."

"It is your response to winning and losing that makes you a winner or loser." ~ Harry Sheehy
