Coach Kareé's Bio
 

Coach Karee is entering her first season with DIG Volleyball Club and we could not be more excited to have her on staff! Karee played 4 years at Allen High School, 4 years at West Virginia State University and has a Master’s Degree in Criminal Justice with a focus in juvenile deviance. During her time as a player, she was an outstanding outside hitter and was captain of her team all four years. 

 

Karee started her coaching career in  2015 at two different clubs while in college- Kanawha County Volleyball Club and West Virginia Swarm Volleyball Club. In 2017, she moved to Texas and started coaching at Texas Assault and has coached the top teams in ages 15-18s. She also served as the Communications Director and Recruiting Coordinator at Texas Assault during that time. For the 2022-2023 season, she also accepted the position as assistant coach at Brookhaven College. 

 

Coach Karee loves to inspire her athletes by creating a space where they can learn not only volleyball, but life skills. Her dynamic energy and personality will be a huge asset to athletes at DIG! 

 

Favorite core value at DIG 

 

Her favorite core value is DESIRE. Karee says,  “When you have desire, there are no limits. I believe that DESIRE is the DRIVE that makes you go after what you WANT. In my opinion, DESIRE will beat talent any day.  I love seeing an athlete that WANTS to succeed and has a true drive to be great and expects nothing less every time they step foot on the court, versus the athlete that relies solely on their talent. Nothing is given to us, especially in athletics. I love seeing an athlete put in the work to get what they DESIRE. Having DESIRE  helps you  set goals which can develop into competitiveness. I want to be around athletes that desire to reach their goals, desire to get better every day, and desire to win.”

 

She gets her athletes FIRED UP by sharing her passion with them through high energy and intensity. 

 

Personal 

 

Coach Karee is very excited to be getting married in April 2023. Outside of volleyball, she loves playing volleyball, shopping, reading and has a passion for working with and mentoring youth. She also enjoys spending time with her family and friends and traveling.
