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.
Hi, I’m Seth and I found volleyball by accident. Growing up, I played every sport imaginable (track, soccer, tennis, swimming, diving, cross-country, gymnastics, hockey, figure skating, baseball, basketball, football). From an early age, I became serious about basketball and I played from 3rd grade to my senior year of highschool.
Seeing as there was not a boys volleyball where I grew up, I would pop into the gym and watch the volleyball practices. Coach got sick of me watching, and one day invited me to join practice. It was there that I became a student of the game. I wanted to learn everything I could about the sport. I became addicted, and I spent every free moment passing against a wall or rolling the ball off the roof of my house in order to pass and set to myself. Eventually, I became involved in summer open gyms and kept score at weekend tournaments.
My senior year I made the choice to not play basketball in college. Instead, I made the choice to attend a college where I could try out for a men’s volleyball team. I ended up attending The College of St. Scholastica in Duluth Minnesota where I played for the Men’s Division III club volleyball team. After several semesters at Scholastica, I transferred to the University of Minnesota where I played with their men’s club team.
At Minnesota, I was introduced to grass and sand volleyball, and I began to travel the US and play year round. My academic path led me back to Duluth where I concluded my education and athletic eligibility at The University of Minnesota Duluth. While attending UMD, I coached at a local club, student coached for the UMD Women’s Volleyball team and served as the UMD men’s club volleyball president and played on the men’s club team.
Through traveling and playing I was able to meet some guys who were serious about training and trying to play EVP Tour events and AVP Next qualifiers.
I moved to Green Bay where I lived and trained with four other guys all chasing the dream of playing sand doubles at a professional level. I spent several years training and learning the sand game before stepping into some EVP Tour events. I also served as the varsity assistant coach for Notre Dame Academy’s Boys volleyball program for a season. I still continue to train and travel to play as much as my schedule allows.
Coaching and teaching the sport I love to others is my way of giving back to the sport that’s given me so much. I’m excited to be a part of the Heat Volleyball family, and I look forward to working with you all this season.
