Coach Bios

We have a great group of coaches at Skagit Volleyball Club this year!  Check out their coaching bios below!  We like to pair multiple coaches for each team to provide better individual instruction and flexibility.

U18 - Sarah and John Moore

Sarah and John will be coaching their fifth year for Skagit this year, having coached the same core group of girls since they were in middle school.  Sarah started playing volleyball in the fourth grade and played at Amarillo High School in Texas and also for the Amarillo Volleyball Club.  She coached three years of club ball at Amarillo and took her U13 team to Nationals.  She also ran regular setter clinics for middle and high school girls.  John not only married Sarah, but also her love for volleyball.


U16-1 - Alicia Guildner and Stephanie Morrell

 Alicia is excited to be back on the west coast!  After spending the past year and a half in Delaware working on her Master's degree, Alicia is back to coach the 16s after coaching the U14 team in 2012.  Alicia played club for Skagit for 6 years, from 2001-2006.  She was a two year varsity setter at Mount Vernon High School, and has stayed involved in the sport since then by coaching and reffing.  In 2009, she was the U16 head coach of Forest Grove Ohana in Forest Grove, OR.  In 2010, she was a club official, and in 2011, she reffed high school ball.  Along with coaching this year, Alicia is the Tulip Festival Tournament coordinator and has take over the director role of the club.

Stephanie coached U16 and U17 at Skagit in 2007 and 2008, and was the head coach of the U13 team last year, in 2013.  She was a three year varsity setter and team captain at East Valley High School and played club volleyball for Team Yakima and the Cascade Volleyball Club.  She also coached U18 at SIVA in 2009 and was a camp coach at the 2009 NBC Volleyball Camp in Spokane.  Steph started a new job this year, so since she cant commit to being a head coach, she is excited to be an assistant at the 16s level!
