Coach Julie

Notes from the Coach

Welcome to 12 Red! I am Coach Julie and this is my 6th season with LoneStar Volleyball club. I am really looking forward to getting this season started!

I grew up here in Texas but moved to Washington where my love and passion for volleyball began. I played 6 years of club and school volleyball until suffering an injury my senior year while playing in a districts game, which ultimately forced me to give up my chance to play in college. Unable to give up my passion for the sport, I began my journey in coaching. I coached at Cedarcrest High School for 2 years, first as the Freshman coach, then Junior Varsity and Assistant Varsity coach. I also coached two years of club in Duvall, Washington.

I then decided to take some time away from coaching where I got married, moved to Texas, and graduated from the University of North Texas. Soon after graduation my husband and I decided to start a family. I have been married for 15 years now and have 3 kids. My daughters are beginning to learn the love for volleyball and that is very exciting for me.

As a coach I love the opportunity I am given to have a positive impact on each athlete on and off the court, teaching them the skills they need to help them be successful players as well as respectful teammates. I believe in hard work, but it is also important to have fun while doing it!
