Recruiting Coordinator: Steve Howard

Steve has been active with AVA since its inception in 2000. His coaching experience includes the last 5 years as the Head Volleyball Coach at Daviess County High School, the previous 10 years as the Head Volleyball Coach at Owensboro Catholic High School, President of Kentucky Volleyball Coaches Association, Director of AVA, Camp and Clinic coaching and coaching every age group from 13U to 18U with AVA. Coach Howard has been married for the last 14 years to his childhood sweetheart Angie and has two children Carter (12) and Laynie (9). We have worked hard over the last 15 years to improve volleyball in the surrounding area and I believe this club has a huge impact in and around Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana. Volleyball has been a passion of mine since the first time I touched the ball in Southern California 25 years ago. This sport is an amazing tool to teach young people the rewards of hard work and dedication. Many of the life lessons that become the foundation to a successful life can only be taught to young people between the lines of sports. I am excited to be coaching both the 18U National team and the 14U team this season. Both of these teams will presenting me with challenges I love.
