I have been a club coach for the last 8 years (6 as a Head Coach and 2 years as Assistant Coach. I've coached volleyball from youth through 18u. I am currently the Seymour High School Varsity Assistant Coach and JV2 Head Coach for Seymour High School.
I got started playing volleyball in rec leagues after I hurt my shoulder playing softball, and then progressed to playing in adult volleyball tournaments across the mid-west for most of my 20's and 30's.
I look forward to seeing the girls making progress in getting better at their overall skills as the season goes on.
My name is Abby Brown and I am 16 Red’s Assistant coach! I was a Varsity player at Newman Catholic in Wausau, WI for all four years of high school under coach Betty Lange and a member of the Wisconsin Ice Volleyball Club in central Wisconsin. After my competitive career was over, I coached Newman’s summer league teams for three years and volunteered at their camps. I was involved in many recreational and sand leagues throughout college, but never had the opportunity to coach. I recently got a job in the Occupational Therapy field and moved to the Fox Valley in May. When the opportunity arose to be an assistant coach for Heat, I jumped on it due to my passion and love for the game of volleyball. This gave me an opportunity to get involved in my new community right away as well! I am excited for this season and to pass my experience and knowledge on to the young ladies I am coaching.
