We are proud to have coaches return year after year! Our coaches are all technically skilled and experienced players who come from a variety of backgrounds. Our hope is that all campers leave with improved skills, new friendships and a love for the game. Coaches aim to inspire campers by sharing their volleyball skills, knowledge and passion for the game many of them have been playing for years!

Amanda loves the game of volleyball, continues to play recreational, and can't wait to meet the new group of campers this summer.

Susan Huffman

Susan is a native of Houston, Texas, where she was a standout high school athlete receiving All-State honors in both volleyball and basketball. 

After high school, Susan continued playing volleyball as an outside hitter and a middle blocker at Division I Baylor University for her first two collegiate seasons and then at NCAA Division I University of Oklahoma for her final two seasons.  At the University of Oklahoma, she earned All-Big 8 Conference honors and was named the Sooner’s Most Valuable Player in 1991.    

Following college, Susan was the assistant coach at NCAA Division I University of Nevada in Reno.  She accepted the head coaching position at Dominican University in San Rafael in 1995.  While at Dominican University, Susan led the Dominican team to two California Pacific Conference titles and was twice named California Pacific Conference’s Coach of the Year.  Additionally, three of Susan’s players at Dominican were awarded All-American honors and many more were named to the All-Conference teams.   Fun fact: Camp Director, Amanda Estes, played for Susan at Dominican!

Susan has spent almost 20 years coaching youth at all levels in college, club, high school, camps and CYO.  She enjoys watching athletes progress in their development and sharing her love for the game.

Susan earned her B.S. in Marketing from the University of Oklahoma and her California teaching credential from Dominican University.  When not coaching volleyball, she teaches in the San Rafael City School District.
