Head Coach - 15 Jade
Head Coach - 12 White

Coach “Sensei” David grew up in Southern California and fell in love with volleyball in 7th Grade and has played ever since. He was asked to help the Girls HS Team while a Junior and quickly gained a passion for the coaching side of the game. His “other hobby” became playing outdoors, mostly at a local beach! He played a year at a local Community College, then was hired as the Girls Varsity coach at his High School three years later. While in CA, he helped start a Club program and coached both Girls and Boys HS Teams for over 12 years. He also contracted as a shooter and editor for a Recruiting Services company for 15 years. Upon moving to Lake Norman in 2003, he served as Lead Advisor for the LKN VB Club for two years, where he met David Kounlamith. The two kept in touch over the years, and it was a dream come true to partner with PAVC! Sensei’s goal is to encourage every player he comes in contact with.
