We are excited to tell you about this triple threat that includes former OUA and NCAA volleyball players turned teachers along with a team building/mental performance coach.
14U Girls Head coach, Pat McGlynn, has been coaching various sports for many years including volleyball, basketball, and football. He is one of the original DRVC coaches and after taking a hiatus following the birth of his kids, Coach Pat has been back with us for a few years now coaching at the 13U and 15U girls level. Pat is a former varsity volleyball player having played with the Windsor Lancers Men’s Volleyball team where he was co-captain. As a physical education teacher with the Durham District School Board, Pat brings a strong technical background and understanding of what young athletes need to succeed and strives to provide a positive environment for players to develop their skills, confidence, and leadership.
Elicia Hannah played high school volleyball in Michigan and with Dunes Club Volleyball in Indiana. She continued to play 2 years of NCAA volleyball and 1 year in the NAIA. She also played softball in high school and at the collegiate level. Coach Elicia became a teacher and then had the good fortune to stay home with her children for 9 years before becoming the children’s director in a Durham church. Although the Hannah family has been with the DRVC family for 5 years, this is Elicia’s first year of coaching. She is excited to share her love of volleyball and technical strengths with our young athletes.
Coach Janice McGlynn will round out this triple threat where Janice brings great knowledge and training beyond her volleyball skills in corporate team building and understanding how to help competitors build mental resilience and focus to aid in their personal and athletic success.
We are very excited to bring this trio together to work with our 14U athletes and look forward to being able to offer a second team in the 14U Girls division this season.
