Kirsten has been helping with camps, clinics and teams with La Jolla Volleyball club for the past year and we are excited to have her coaching our Fall Black team this year!
Kirsten is originally from Minnesota. She played high school volleyball at Lakeville North under Milan Mader the second most winningest coach in Minnesota. She was also a high jumper in track and field. Kirsten played club at M1 volleyball club for 4 years as a middle and opposite. She received a scholarship to play as middle at Upper Iowa University where she led the team in hitting percentage her sophomore year. She later transferred and played for the club team at the University of Minnesota. Kirsten still plays in adult indoor and beach volleyball leagues.
Kirsten started coaching camps and clinics at M1 in 2006, and has been coaching since. All of her teams have participated and or placed at either USAV or AAU nationals. She is happy she escaped the cold and is excited to be coaching at La Jolla Volleyball Club.
