Jadwiga Graham

Program Director, Coach

9-12, 13-15 Boys and Girls

Originally from Poland, former player in High School and College, over 10 years of coaching experience in St. Louis and St. Charles area, extremely passionate about volleyball and young athlete's development.

"I believe foundation skills are a catalyst to an energetic, fun, fast moving game! Ball handling is #1, then everything else falls in place. What I enjoy the most is when I make a right call about the player's position (even if the player does not believe in her or himself) and later, the player discovers the power within herself and carries pride on their face! It's an amazing feeling! I love seeing a positive impact on players!"
